CA Boom and Dwell Show

Dax Wagner from Southern California went to two home shows that featured small homes over the last weekend. Dax explains what he saw below:

We ended up also attending the Dwell On Design Show which was held on the same day at the L.A. Convention Center. The first two pictures are of the Modern Shed. The rest are of the IC Green shipping containers. Two different sheds were represented, one at each show:

First (at Dwell On Design) was a 120 sq.ft. container with no plumbing. It was used as a “cabana” with a portion of the container used as a small porch so that there would not be any permitting requirements. They offered it at $9,500.

The 2nd (at the CA Boom Show) was a 320 sq. ft. unit with full IKEA kitchen and bath. VERY nice, livable unit with lots of windows. Offered at $25000.

The representative said that different basic configurations are offered at about $100 per sq. foot. Not bad at all, but to get full insulation, radiant heat flooring and an A/C unit installed, it would be more like $145 per sq. foot. This, of course, does not include the land and prep work for the foundation. Go to the IC Green site here to learn more. Overall is was a grat day at two shows!

I really like the IC Green 320. Placing one of those near a lake or a bay would be my dream escape.

Did anybody attend the CaBoom show this year? I’m trying to find out if it was worthwhile

What about the Logical Homes container structure at the Dwell Show in 2009 – it was really cool.
