Back by Popular Demand…

 

Rural Studio – an Auburn University program for Architecture students – is known for the ingenious creation of well-designed homes and community centers for impoverished rural families.  And they’ve proven time and time again that amazing things can be done with very little money.  A couple weeks ago, we showed you how 3 examples of how something can be created from nothing, and then last week we featured another few homes by Rural Studio.  So, without further a-do, back by popular demand…. here are several more Rural Studio masterpieces.  Have a look-see and enjoy!

 

 

Goat House

The Goat House was once a simple concrete block structure inhabited by goats. Renovations included the defining center hall terminated by floor to ceiling glass doors.

Harris/Butterfly House

The Butterfly House, which was built for Anderson and Ora Lee Harris, derives its name from the sharply angled roof structure that collects rainwater and shelters a screened porch. The house is largely heated and cooled passively, with assistance from a wood-burning stove. The house is now occupied by Anderson & Ora Lee’s daughter.

Bryant Haybale House

The Bryant House was built for Shepard and Alberta Bryant, and their two grandchildren. The 24-inch thick walls are stacked hay bales stuccoed over with concrete; sheltered by a large roof that creates a great southern porch. In 2003 Shepherd passed away and Alberta continued to live in the house until 2007. Their granddaughter Cupcake now calls the house home.
