Seattle Modern Homes for Sale

Seattle and the Pacific Northwest is a hotbed of modern and contemporary design, with a unique emphasis on energy-efficient and sustainable architecture.
From affordable modern homes in Seattle to million-dollar custom homes, multi-family residential and mixed-use buildings, green building and sustainable approaches to urban living, you’ll find it all here at Northwest Modern Homes.

Many homebuyers today appreciate the modern asthetic and are interested in purchasing and living in a home that has a modern and streamline feel. This does not necessarily mean a new home, as the Bauhaus and Modern Home design began in the 1920’s, so when we speak of “Modern Homes”, they may not necessarily be new but have the clean lines and open spaces that epitomize this kind of design aesthetic. We can be discussing homes built from the 1930's to today.

Building with plastic bottles

Building with plastic bottles, originally uploaded by bryanilona.

The U.S. discards 13 million tons of plastic annually — more than 12% of our overall waste — and barely 7% of the plastic we discard is recycled. The biggest proportion of that plastic waste comes in the form of plastic bottles (beverages as well as personal care products, cleansers and the like) and packaging. How about a plastic bottle greenhouse? Or a colorful outdoor wall? That’s what this sewage treatment plant in Scotland tried, to great effect:

I wish I had come across this idea years ago when I was more involved in schools and community art projects.
I have done a lot of strange things with recycling plastic drinks bottles, but why did I never think of building walls?
These were used to screen off a natural sewage treatment area for the Fife Earthship where plants were used , but I also saw a large greenhouse built with these.........which got me thinking...................
The trouble is I don't really drink fizzy pop to get the bottles!

  1. This new construction is very environment friendly and pretty stylish at the same time. Instead of throwing these plastic bottles, it's best to gather them up and make them useful just like this structure.
