Prefab SIP House In Colorado: Please Read 1st

Here we begin the journey of a prefab SIPs house by Green Modern Kits, the one story casa ti prefab modern house kit in Colorado.

What you need to know is that the pictures and words are that of the owner, Mr. P; but because he does not enjoy blogging, he is sending me handwritten letters with photographs to then scan in and blog.


With pleasure, may I introduce you to the
Prefab Affordable SIPs House In Colorado:

"9-8-09

Copeland,

Just a start here, so you can see I'm serious. In all pics, see bright pink string defining perimeters of casa ti. Mostly red clay soil. Note power pole, #3, water hose, #5. Not far to move utilities.

Jeremy - age 31, Shawn - age 35, two guys that have a lot of energy and enthusiasm.

We will have great views.

Next: Finish new driveway to accomodate big trucks.

Then "stub in" utilities.

- R. P."
He made comments on the back of each picture, so I will quote them next to each picture:
Picture 1:

"Looking N.E. - Note stakes with bright pink string between them"



Picture #2:

"Looking S.E. from my present barbecue pit"



Picture #3:

(Note power pole in top center of photograph)

"Looking S.W. good detail of 4' wall"

(Copeland's note: It is admittedly hard to see the pink string in these pictures, try clicking on them to see the large image.)


Picture #4:

"Looking S.E.

The tool for doing rough-in earthwork - bobcat with teeth on bucket."




Picture #5:

"Looking mostly East / some South.

Front: Jeremy - heavy equipment operator, surveyor.

Back: Shawn - Framer / builder with lots of SIPs experience."

Any more updates? I'm also in Colorado and would love to see more of your project! Where in CO is the site?

Was this the site of a former structure, or formerly open land?

It is unfortunate that so many who wish to be "Earth friendly" and "sustainable" make the decision not to renovate an existing structure but to tear another hole into the ground and add another human-made scar to the world.

I don't necessarily think it's the fault of the future occupant, either. Crazy pricing of existing structures usually mean it is more inexpensive to start a greenfield project than a brownfield project. Sadly, this just promotes urban decay and sprawl.

When the wife and I finally decide to move out to our rural paradise, we hope to find an existing structure (a trailer or mobile home would be ideal), level it, and start from scratch. That way the net change to the land is zero, from our point of view.
