Time Out…

…giddy up!  We are heading to Mexico for horseback riding, rest, and relaxation.  Our horses are waiting for us at El Mirador House.  One of the necessary elements for a dream house of my own is a space which I can easily share with nature’s bounty of docile animals…horses, goats, sheep…and, of course, dogs.  El Mirador House fits this requirement seamlessly…a forest respite created by CC Arquitectos.

The structure is a combination of steel and wooden beams, and the retaining walls are made out of stones from the area…

Dream a Little Dream…

…as it gets colder in Chicago, I dream of having a warm climate respite.  Enter ÁBATON, one of my favorite architectural firms, located in Madrid.  ÁBATON has developed the ÁPH80 series as a dwelling ideal for 2 people, easily transported by road, and ready to be placed almost anywhere.

The outside is covered with grey cement wood board…

The use of wood throughout the building not only adds calmness and balance but it is also hypoallergenic. The sourced wood comes from regulated forests…

The herd is optional…in my dream, I would have nubian goats…

Manufacturing time is 6-8 weeks.  Assembly time is a mere 24 hours…ÁBATON magic…
