Coolest project EVER!

And I'm really not exaggerating this time (yes, I occassionally add some flair for the storytelling aspect).

Friends of ours have embarked on this amazing architectural adventure, Project Octopod, and I wanted to share it with you.  It is a cabin in the woods, but, definitely not what you picture when you think cabin - it will be made out of eight shipping containers and will function completely off the grid.  

Not only is it completely creative, environmental, technically savvy and exciting but they are doing and documenting a ton of research throughout the process so we can learn from them.   And, if you are so inclined, you can do it yourself with their assistance.  

I don't want to speak too much about the project because it is all laid out perfectly on their website.  Go check it out at Sea Container Cabin.  

And construction is beginning, so you can see it unfold over the next several months.  I will definitely be following the progress and maybe I'll even get to help design the interiors (hint, hint Jason!)
