We end with a shot of the interior of the Blue Crest which once again features wooden flooring and large windows. When it comes to modular housing the interiors often reflect the modern sensibility of the homes’ exteriors. In other words sometimes less is more. Not to mention modern decor really pops inside of these dwellings:
Next we have the Mobile Living Unit 28 which comfortably houses two but features two additional beds in case you want to invite guests over to marvel at the amazing design!

Yes this mobile unit can be used as a summer home and located just about anywhere.
Paradigm is available in a range of sizes from studio to three-bedroom dwellings. As stated on the Bogue Trondowski site “The homes are designed to be energy and water Net Zero and are targeting LEED Platinum the Passivhaus Standard and 6 of the 7 petals of the Living Building Challenge once designs are adjusted for site specific conditions.” Yep they’re eco-friendly!
The next featured collection of dwellings is a series of modular apartments located in Japan. Built by Sankyo Frontier Co. Ltd. these residences are constructed from units that have been subjected to strength and water tightness tests. Not to mention wall ceiling and floor insulation and soundproofing have been enhanced in compliance with the Revised Building Standards Law.
The site on which these huts rest was once an RV campground. The homes are grouped as a team yet each one faces the mountains so the view is expansive rather than crowded. For more information on renting these stunning homes located in located in Washington’s Methow Valley check out Rolling Huts.

When you mention Texas one can’t help but think of oil rigs amazing cattle farms tycoons and a rather arid landscape. But keeping away from the culture of “bigger better and faster” the Hill Country residence in Austin has our thirst for architectural design fulfilled.
