just walking down the street

It's amazing weather. And coffee is... well... necessary. So, it makes sense to get out and take a walk. The Blue Pepper in downtown Salem has a cool sign, and great coffee. With the blue sky, the old building, and the aforementioned sign, just had to take the picture! If you're looking for great coffee while visiting our state capital, check them out....

that was quick!

Wow! Bring in a house, add a deck, maybe a garden and look out! The ideabox @ port townsend is really looking nice. A new geo deck leads to a garden beyond that truly brings living inside an ideabox outside. All within a small lot that defines big modern living in a small carbon footprint.

If you're in the Port Townsend area and want to visit, do so soon! Contact Charlie Arthur, RE/MAX First, 360.344.3930. Charlie has other lots in the Port Townsend area perfect for creating your easy living ideabox solution!

The sun is out in force - what an amazing weekend in the Pacific Northwest. With all this sunshine comes energy and excitement. Our trees all around us here at the ideabox campus are filled with chirping birds, it's a great time to be in Oregon.

All sorts of ideabox activity with houses under construction, houses being installed, new exciting houses coming soon, and projects in development.

If you are in the area, please stop by. Look for the table on the deck, if it's there we're there! (With the sunshine we're trying to ride bikes... you know, do our part, get in shape, enjoy the weather...)

The Next Phase

ideabox + cube is supported to new FEMA 100 Year Flood standards. Ironically, much like most of the early homes built in the valley. Perimeter structural walls are next , and hopefully spring like weather!

installation begins

With the confluence + cube on site and positioned, the installation process begins. The pieces are fastened together, the foundation system is placed and soon after services are connected. Because the house is virtually complete when it arrives, the transition from a grass field to livable home happens quickly.

coming together

With incredible precision, the ideabox cube is positioned into place alongside the main confluence house.

cube delivery

It's delivery day. A new ideabox confluence + cube is brought to its building site awaiting installation. The building site, a grassy field located in a small rural Oregon town, will quickly transform into a new modern garden home.
