What’s Green And Can Fit A Body Inside?

What’s Green And Can Fit A Body Inside?

a). The Green Lantern’s body suit.
b). One of the pods from the movie “Invasion Of The Body Snatchers”.
c). The latest trend in home building.

Since this Blog is centered around real estate, you’ve probably already guessed that the appropriate answer is C (although A is technically correct and B is half correct since the movie was originally shot in B&W).  Yes, I am referring to a trend that is considered “green” (not the color, but the effort to save our world by changing our lifestyles and taking our environment into consideration).

Could you be a pea in a pod?

The days of the McMansion are coming to an end.  Small is big and Big is small these days.  Pod housing is a growing trend, and for good reason.  Not only is the footprint smaller and more energy efficient, but the manufacturing process can be streamlined, resulting in pre-fabricated kits which can be built quicker and with less waste byproduct.

The biggest hurdle for the supporters of this type of housing, is getting mass consumer acceptance. In other countries, minimalist housing is the norm (see video below).

I’m not sure if I could live in a 300 square foot apartment, but from the video above, it appears that the occupant isn’t sacrificing much!

What do you think? Could you live comfortably in a pod unit?  Leave a comment!
