They have selected Seabrook, Washington as the location for the 2013 idea houses and town and have constructed two houses that showcase innovative architecture, ideas, sustainable practises and what it envisions as the future of housing.
The group have been making these idea homes since 1998 to showcase innovations on the field. Of course these homes are the best of the best and can be quite stunning so for people interested in such things a peak inside would be fantastic.
From their press release they say of Seabrook “Seabrook’s cottages and homes, all of which are within a five-minute walk of basic needs, are situated along streets, alleys, parks, plazas, and a retail district that are artfully designed to frame outdoor rooms where neighbors and guests gather.”
“Seabrook is a charming seaside town built on big ideas that promote a true sense of community,” said Sunset Editor-in-Chief Kitty Morgan. “Seabrook’s ability to integrate these development principles seamlessly within a stunning natural environment is what made it the ideal candidate for the 2013 Idea Houses and the Idea Town recognition.”

You can tour the homes the rest of this month through to October 27th Friday through to Sunday between 10am and 5p,. It costs $18 (not cheap to look round a house!) but a portion of that is donated to the Seabrook Community Foundation. There are also tours of the town itself.
You can take a sneak peak in the video below. It looks stunning!
