I got a UVA press release this morning that reminded me that there are a few small homes scattered around Charlottesville and one more is on its way. The homes are called ecoMODS. These small, efficient homes are built by students from the Architecture and Engineering students and upon completion, they are installed somewhere in Charlottesville. As I poked around the ecoMOD website, I was struck by how attractive the interiors are.
I did some googling and found an Architectural Record article that describes ongoing efforts to monitor energy consumption. The press release has a quote from an ecoMOD resident who said that a professor was able to tell her how much each load of laundry was costing her.
This is afford, eco-friendly housing? I need these kids to come over to my place.
I think that's an Ikea sink
