    Default The Upcher house


    Laurie Lambrecht for The New York Times
    ECONOMY CLASS: Caroline Upcher wanted a simple house in the Hamptons. For $190 a square foot, her architects devised a two-story cube clad in tinted fiberboard and rough plywood. No need for a garage: Ms. Upcher prefers to bike.

    love the house! the upstairs mezzanine/library is fantastic and so is the kitchen.
    don't really care for the furniture though, except for the dining room table.

    It looks like an old public library. I love books, but this is just.... blech.

    I think it looks very nice & obviouly works for her. That price is amazingly cheap.

    "Tinted fiberboard and rough plywood"? Sounds as sturdy and durable as the crap furniture you get at Target.
