I would have been the most popular kid in grade school (and let’s be honest, probably high school too) if I had just had a secret Narnia room like this. Designed by Douglas Shepherd of Maple Seed Renovation in Portland who specializes in custom residential remodeling projects. I wonder if he could also build a fireman’s pole into the kitchen and a water slide from the roof? (via dornob)

This made me chuckle. Notebook paper bedding by RetroNana. If you’re the crafty type, you buy the fabric and make something awesome. For me. (via shewalkssoftly)

Klai Brown

My wife discovered the work of LA artist Klai Brown a few months ago at Renegade and was all too excited to place her business card atop my Stack Of Awesome. However the Stack Of Awesome was inadvertently converted to the Stack of Bills and Shit and I’m only just now getting to it. A huge gallery of all kinds of neat stuff via her web site, and everything above available for sale in her shop. She’ll also be at Renegade LA and SF in December.

LUMENHAUS is a solar-powered home designed by Virginia Tech students that generates more power than it uses annually. It was one of only two American entries in the 2010 Solar Decathalon Europe competition in Madrid, and was on display in Millennium Park in Chicago up until last weekend. Totally kicking myself for missing this.

LUMENHAUS is designed to respond to changes in temperature and environment, which it does through sliding polycarbonate insulation panels filled with aerogel, creating strong insulation while allowing a soft natural light into the space. They move to create appropriate amounts of sun control, cross ventilation, lighting, and privacy. A stretched fabric ceiling provides enough light at night with dim flourescent and LED lighting, and no electric light is ever required when the sun is up. The roof collects rain water, which is then filtered and used for drinking and for the water plants. The entire system is monitored and controlled by an iPad and iPhone interface that allocates energy to different areas of the system at different times.
