The reticulated house is designed to be fabricated off-site, and be transported on the back of a flatbed truck to its final location. The house itself is comprised of 9’x10’ modules and is divided intof 2 main living volumes, one public, and one private. It adapts to different climates through the on-site configuration: for warmer climates, the main volumes are more offset therefore having more exterior surface area and more “captured” exterior space, and for colder climates, there is more overlap to minimize surface area and heating loads.
The reticulated house is made of stock items such as Structurally Insulated Panels, Cement Board and Zinc Siding, a modular foundation system, and off the shelf windows among others.Honorable Mention in Free Green's Who's Next affordable green home competition
