Weird Homes Tour – New Orleans
The 750 sq ft shipping container home of Seth Rodewald-Bates & Elisabeth Davies is the result of the perfectly weird marriage of New Orleans and West Texas inspirations. The story begins in weird and wonderful Marfa, Texas, where Seth and Elisabeth first met. Marfa is famous for the art installations of Donald Judd whose minimal aesthetic inspired the home’s style. And what better place for this home than New Orleans with it’s traditional long and narrow shotgun style houses.
Seth and Elisabeth built their home along with a little help from friends and family over the course of a year and a half. Inside, they live minimally as one would expect with exception to their extensive book collection. Book topics cover everything from sustainability to the culinary arts.
