    You were one of the irrepressibly brilliant minds in science and engineering that inspired me as a kid. Today, I'm an aerospace engineer, and it is so deeply fulfilling. I met my wife through work, bought my house through work; so much good in my life is because of those who guided me down this path. There are so many just like me. So many who have so much because of the life you led. RIP Grant, you built a better future... and kickass robotics!! You earned your bench space at the Great Workshop In the Sky. One day, I hope to do the same. You will be remembered.

    Great content and I really appreciate the production value. I would like to see something more affordable.

    Hot damn! Finally, a current enough video on THmy to to have the potential to include SIPs, ect. and the actual requirements that more than meet the building codes. Most cities require standards that we passed up in housing tech two decades ago, forcing unnecessary building costs that do absolutely nothing, as addressed already in current construction practices.

    @1997lordofdoom In popular areas that is mostly true, but if you work and live further out it is cheaper. I am merely making the point that the cost of building a house is actually reasonable. What is really expensive is actually the location. I am not living any fantasy land. You just keep failing to understand my point. House prices are only expensive because of the location. You can get a million dollars junk home in the bay area, but you can spend half the money and get mansion in Texas.

  • 1997lordofdoom

    @Porco Rosso Nope, a house that would cost 50k in the 80s now costs tripple that amount of money while salaries have barely gone up. The USA has an eviction crisis right now, I guess everyone should just look for houses in worse locations. As I said, in what kind of fantasy land are you living buddy? I hope everyone in the world lived there also.

    People can afford houses. Just not in expensive locations. The house itself cause relatively little. It is usually the location that makes it expensive.

  • Nicholas Receveur

    high perimeter to area ratio (check), lots of glazing (check), practically no eaves (check) = Modern Architecture indeed. Even in a forgiving climate like Austin, the owners will be at the mercy of active cooling (AC) 6 months of the year. I would have aligned skillian roof to face south to maximize solar gains and employed generous eaves to keep the thermal loading off the mass - perhaps with north-facing clerestory windows to increase the internal cross ventilation. Smart houses used traditional design principles first, and active systems to increase efficiency second.

  • Nicholas Receveur

    I guess my point is this: While the early modernists certainly had valid grounds to break from the stagnant cycle of neo-revivalism and seize the potential of technological advancements, today's context is far different. Our resources are becoming ever more finite, thus we would be foolish to turn our backs on the genius of past minds without becoming bogged down by convention. And let's face it, a box house is practically modern convention anyway.

    Thanks Verge- nice post! Here's what I'd like for the home of the future: 1) off grid power, water, sewer, and storm drainage. 2) demand powered wireless internet as fast as LAN - Japan has this already 3) a secure basement or safe room 4) enough power to run smart appliances, locks, A/C, lighting 5) Biophilic design with an edible green wall - and permaculture practices. 6) HVAC that ties into base subterranean heat temperatures for the green wall as well as a separate greenhouse. 7) All of the above Premanufactured. We should buy up Detroit and covert it into housing manufacturing since we shut down the auto plants. 8)

    Excellent show. Considering the implications of climate change and how our collective lack of effective corrective action is going effect future economies and communities. My responsible home of the future will be prepared to deal with extreme weather events. 300km winds, heat waves, flooding and energy self sufficiency including smart grid technology to accommodate long term power outages and electric vehicle recharging. Digitally connected without question but not necessarily a "smart home" in terms we commonly use today. Anyone that values privacy in the home will not load their home full of equipment for hackers to exploit. The Intelligent home of the future must include intelligent design to accommodate realities in the digital age. AI sentry to monitor electronic system, internet firewalls and home permitor security? Brilliant show. Thank you :)

  • Not Santa

    A home of the future will be an apartment building with underground parking. In all seriousness, it would be a 3-storey house with underground parking (enough for 10 cars in case of house parties) powered by multiple solar panels on the roof and solar panel windows/blinds/curtains. And if you think that's an interesting idea, that's just the start for a future house in about 20 years. 50 years from now, there will be better houses, bigger garages, in-home elevators, and a power source other than solar fueling the world.

  • Jeffrey Galeski

    Hey Grant, right off the batt I've always liked factory-built homes but I still have some question like can the mfg., add in-floor heating, how are changes handled while the house is being erected and how is water, power, sewer, cable handled between modules; specifically connections.

    It's great to see the use of Zip sheathing at least, but orientation, airsealing and many other considerations determine whether this house is built to future or even modern day best practice building principles. Passive house, net-zero, and building science practices in general are often overlooked and underappreciated.

    SIMPLICITY, SIMPLICITY, SIMPLICITY - I see a lot of high tech gadgetry implied by what’s going on in the background which makes me wonder - and possibly I'm completely off course with this one - but it makes me think about my friends’ family room with 5 separate remote controls to operate the various components of their “home entertainment center” which is set up primarily for viewing what’s on their huge flat screen TV; and this was set up by a professional, too. Eventually someone had to put together what’s supposed to be a simple-to-understand user manual for the remotes alone. Even then, their use is still something to master. Which also reminds me of my new NEST thermostat that came with the solar panel system on my roof. I’m still boggled by it. It clearly seems to have a mind of its own. ••• All that said, I love this concept of high quality, well designed, prefab construction, and I find this particular example to be exquisite in its simplicity and design.

  • vishal hari
    vishal hari3 ปีที่แล้ว

    How much would a prefab house like the one shown at the end of the video typically cost? Whenever I dream of a house, I don't dream of a big house, instead, I dream of a house with renewable energy and that is self-sufficient. A smart home with energy monitoring system, rainwater harvesting, water recycling, solar panels and an electric car parked in the porch.

  • pi hermoso
    pi hermoso2 ปีที่แล้ว

    the "HOME OF THE FUTURE' totally depends on what the homeowners association want! if they don't want solar panels in your roof then say goodbye to having a solar panel in your roof get approved.. and in USA you can't collect rainwater either so being a self sustaining home in the USA is a long shot... if you really want to look for a real 'home of the future', you are better off watching homes in japan/scandinavia or germany.. with these territories, the government rather makes sense on environmental issues..

  • Mr Anti
    Mr Anti3 ปีที่แล้ว

    I studied architecture at University of Cincinnati and still actively work with remodeling and designing homes. The common thing I often see is the lack of air tight sealing of the home which provides huge long term benefits, followed by lack heavy of insulation. other things that would be interesting at this point would be humidity management, air filteration, advanced water systems (filtering, recycling ect), use of solar for not only power but heat / hot water collection, bonus points for concentrated solar setup. I didn't see a garage or port with the house, many other upgrades really depends on location.

    I hear a whole lot of theory on home building & site construction made by people with a vested interest in the modular home industry. They are not always cheaper , ( which surprised me years ago.) It's considerably more expensive to change or add on to a modular house as there are few chases/available pathways for running services. Your home is only as good as the hands that assemble it. Traditionally PreFabs cut corners where ever they can save a penny w/ bare minimum framing, Slave labor wages & some shoddy hidden secrets I've found repairing them over the years. Snap coupling services buried in walls etc.. I say go for it if you can get one cheap. But know more of that money is going towards shareholders & sales than the guy who actually assembled your house. If they are around the same cost per' as a quality camper then maybe. Because that's what your buying. I'd also insist on a poured foundation w/proper storm ties & some type of siding that can be repaired to facilitate window & door replacement. Do your home work.

    The home of the future should be 1) Affordable and use recycled products to minimise costs and less damage to the environment 2) Cater for the old person who is downsizing so single level living. 3) Should provide security both physical and monitoring of home and persons 4) Needs to be energy efficient with minimal utility costs [even harvest rain for drinking water] 5) The house of the future may be located on water such as a lagoon or lake 6) The house of the future needs to be customizable so that there's variations of the same theme. Choice of internal/external colours etc 7) The homes should also have broadband connectivity.

    Not a morning person and all of the light coming in from the outside would drive me crazy. Very interested to see actually what living experience is like.

    Homes of the future should include these three things: 1. Its own self sustaining power plant: solar, wind generation with battery backup 2. Its own clean water management: grey-water and distilling 3. Its own integrated gardening that may include aquaponics

    For the house of the future it sure uses cheap insulation like most built in the usa. I rehabbed a old trailer with foam walls and radiant barrier plus hardy siding and it is twice as efficient then any of these.

    I am completely behind a "smart home". However, an investigative reporter in Canada quickly illustrated how exposed owners utilizing home security, such as "Nest" were actually more susecpible to home break-ins than the generations old deadbolt. During an interview in Canada, new home owners were being interviewed to gauge their belief at how secure their newly purchased home was. While the interview was being unfolding, a "hacker" employed by he agency "hacked" into their heretofore presumed high security home in less than 5 minutes with software online specifically designed to find Nest products. One of the more creepy issues was that the couple that had been hacked admitted to having placed several cameras throughout the house that were hidden to monitor the Nanny. What they did not think of is that when their system was hacked, all cameras were viewed by whomever the hacker wished. Everyone knew when they got up, went to the shower, had sex, cooked breakfast, phoned their mistress, cursed at their children, took drugs, etc, etc. Big Brother

    This is great, but can they be shipped out to Massachusetts? I think you could turn that into a passive house. Great video, thanks
