Hatch Questions Answered! Green Architecture in Maine

Two years ago I lamented that I wanted to know more about this neighbor’s house in Maine but didn’t want to bother the people who lived there. Luckily, The Boston Globe Magazine did, so I was able to learn all about it and get some great peeks inside here. I knew that house was special, it even made the cover! I just wonder how the heck The Boston Globe managed to find our tiny little island of Spruce Head.

Emeco Kong ChairYes, that header is correct: the SF Sunset House Sample Sale is now 70% off.

We only have a smattering of items available, but the stuff that is there is a steal, no doubt. How often do you come across a $1300 Matteo Cashmere Wrap for under $400? Or, an Emeco Kong Chair for under $700? I am not going to even get into the Blu Dot Modulicious Bed.

If you are not in the SF area, I might suggest booking a flight around the date of January 30th (the one and only pick up date). I have heard a few airlines have some pretty smoking deals at the moment. Just kidding (kind of).

Check out what Sample Sale deals you can’t let pass by.

Also, a friendly reminder that this is the LAST weekend to tour the home.

The Sunset Idea House is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The final day to view the home is Sunday, January 27. General admission is $20; $15 for seniors on Fridays. No children younger than 10. The house is located at 3029 25th St, San Francisco, CA 94110. Parking is extremely limited. Free shuttles will be offered from the San Francisco General Hospital parking lot. For information, call (800) 786-7375 or visit the Sunset Web site: www.sunset.com. Please be courteous to Sunset House neighbors when viewing the home (i.e. do not block driveways, leave a mess, cause a raucous, etc.).

Blu Dot Modulicious BedWell folks, we are nearing the end of the Sunset Hose tour. This weekend and next are your last chances to visit the space. Aye carumba! As if seeing the home isn’t enough, we are selling all the sample pieces from the show online. While you look at the house and view all the incredible ways they have made an urban space as green as possible, why not do a little shopping? The challenge this week: try and get to the Blu Dot Modulicious queen bed or Strut Table in dark olive before I do. Ha! I just can’t decide which one I need more.

Check out all the remaining Sample Sale items before they’re gone.

The Sunset Idea House is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. General admission is $20; $15 for seniors on Fridays. No children younger than 10.

Matteo Quatrefoil QuiltIf you have had an opportunity to go to the Sunset House and view some of our DP items in action, now is your chance to purchase the goods at scandalously low prices. 50% off retail on all Sunset House sample items! Yes, I had heart palpitations too when I first heard of the sale.

A friendly piece of advice: Act fast…pieces are going quickly!

The full scoop:

1. View all the available items at our online outlet.
2. The products for purchase are considered “like-new” and were used in the home for staging only. All items are sold “as-is”.
3. All sales are final: No cancellations, returns, or exchanges on Outlet purchases.
4. ***All Outlet purchases must be picked up on January 30, 2008 between 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm at 3029 25th St, San Francisco, CA 94110. This is the only day/time/location open for pickup. If you are buying something rather large, please make sure you bring an appropriate vehicle and some extra hands to help you collect the piece.

One additional DP request: Please be courteous to Sunset House neighbors when picking up items (i.e. do not block driveways, leave a mess, cause a raucous, etc.).

This “Can You Find the Featured Item in the Sunset House Extravaganza” has an extra special challenge to it…

The pieces pictured are of two Modern Bamboo Becca Stools with a natural finish. The challenge: Can you find them in the Sunset House this weekend? The über challenging, extra credit twist: There are two other Modern Bamboo Becca Stools in the home in a different room and with a different finish. Where are they and what color stain do they have?

Oh, this couldn’t get more exciting.
