A Weathering Rusted weeHouse Ages Well in the Woods

weeHousePA1 green

Alchemy Architects’ relatively large (three bedroom) weeHouse at Johnson Creek in Pennsylvania shows how well the popular prefab ages on the outside. With more than 20 built now, some of these are now on their second owners, and have entered the housing stock of homes for sale or even for rent as vacation homes.

Like most of the weeHouses, the Johnson Creek weeHouse exterior is metal – which, exposed to the elements, is now acquiring a gritty naturally rusted exterior that blends with nature. It is intended to have a durable industrial look. You never have to paint it.

It is made of 4 units, stacked tow up into 2 double-height units. This one is for daily living, eating.

The living room is on top to give the best views. Many of these affordable prefabs are in beautiful vacation settings.

The  smaller one serves as a sleeping tower – Both are connected by an elevated patio bridge.

As with all the weeHouses, the interior appointments are sleek and simple, and well designed, making their affordability that much more of an achievement.

    Thanks for the shout out on this Johnson Creek weeHouse. Just to clarify, however, the exterior is fiber-cement board which has been painted with an oxidizing paint. The paint contains small metal particles that rust when a low-acid bath is applied. When a client purchases a weeHouse, the siding options include, but aren't limited to: Corn Crib (a design that works well in high humidity climates as well as others), steel, weathering steel, or fiber cement board. For up-to-date specs, please visit our Web site: http://www.weeHouse.com. Thank you!

    Oh, fascinating, thanks, Betty. I had not heard of this material. Is fiber-cement board painted with an oxidizing paint durable?
