More Homes Going Up on Idea Street

As opening day approaches, construction continues on Seattle Home Show's Idea Streetª, the community of model homes featuring the latest design and building trends in the Northwest. All homes are constructed, finished and landscaped in just five days time.

Smaller homes and a focus on simplicity are the latest trends for the Northwest home, and nowhere is this better highlighted than among the homes going up on Idea Street. The Palm Harbor Avanti is a 600 plus square foot home featuring contemporary styling and sustainable design in a compact footprint. When completed, this Northwest home will feature green building materials inside and out, surrounded by a full Northwest classic garden created by London Landscaping.

Also underway on Idea Street is a display by Aurora Quality Buildings featuring a collection of mini-cabins and outbuildings starting in size at 150 square feet. A complementary landscape garden featuring Northwest native plantings is being created by North Cascades

Rounding out the homes on Idea Street is Coast Cabins. This unique community of homes features compact cabins built using Coast Cabins' patented tongue and groove technology that enables the homes to be constructed using only a rubber mallet. Coast Cabins homes are constructed using green materials. Solar panels, composting toilets and other green practices will be featured in the homes, with landscaping by NW Bloom.
