  1. These are incredible designs, but I still feel there is some serious research needed to build energy efficient homes which also looks practical. As most of the homes which are energy efficient and environment friendly often difficult to implement in reality.

  2. The shed gives great ideas of what to do with those plastic crates!

  3. i like the shed tooo dont think i do the house thing

  4. Hi Nell, Thank you so much for the tips about the Carob tree and Camellia Sinensis and caring enough to comment here. I appreciate it. I feel a tad better about the bugs now too.

  5. When the architects were asked to design a house “… without regard to cost, technology, aesthetics or the way we are used to living” they were obviously without regard to horticulture practices either. A Carob tree grows a foot a year to a height of 50 feet and would not fit the space allotted nor grow well in a plastic crate. Camellia sinensis, the green tea tree also needs space.

    I would not worry about bugs. Good bugs eat bad bugs in my perfect world and snakes take care of any rat problem.

  6. I like the idea of a shed garden, not sure about the house, though. I would worry about bugs, too, and snakes.

  7. You are one of the most interesting people I have met online. Love this Norway story.

  8. Glad to meet a fellow bug hater. It does take the cake of ideas. I like the vertical garden shed.

  9. When we were traveling by train through Norway, we saw house after house with the gardens on the roof of the house. Of course, this was the 24 hours of daylight time of year so I am not sure what happens in winter.
