"green papers" for the weeHouse

One of our favorite thoughts about new construction at Alchemy is:
the greenest square foot is the one you don't build.

In other words, efficiency isn't just about what you do, it's about what you don't.

As designers, we begin each project with a set of limitations and possibilities and — most importantly — the client. Step-by-step we consider time, budget, materials and lifestyle. Always, we consider efficiency and sustainability. They're cornerstones of the prefabricated weeHouse.

Some 'wee's' are more sustainable and efficient than others, but each is built intentionally for its owner. ('wee's' aren't sitting around waiting for a lot to be placed on as wee waits for no one!)

As Alchemy enters the final quarter of 2009, we're ready to launch ideas for 2010. You'll be seeing updates over the next few weeks. But for now, take a look at our weeGreen sheets that include ideas for a weeZERO.

As always, let us know what YOU think. wee cares a lot about that!

weeHouse x deux ... NY to CO!

Casual pictures of weeHouses #19 and #20 being 'set' in Dundee, NY and Nederland, CO. Who sez'contemporary prefab ain't happenin'? Not wee!

More pictures will be posted as the project exteriors are finished.

Also, keep your eye open for the Oceanside weeHouse being featured in Atomic Ranch magazine this Fall. Very exciting!
