Inspiring Houses: West Texas Modern

A publisher and Mies and Carrots reader sent this article on from the New York Times.

An architect and artist couple in Lubbock built a modern home for $51 per square foot.

The house is sheathed in painted corrugated steel.

And the house itself appears extremely livable and quite ample.

I'm sure the cost seems almost otherworldly to the majority of New York Times readers. Surely the couple did a very large percentage of the work themselves, though, to yield a home at that price.

And of course land costs in Lubbock are hardly prohibitive.

An inspiring little article. Have a read.
