About the SG Blocks, Harbinger House, Designed by Lawrence Group
West Coast Green's SG Blocks, Harbinger House, Designed by Lawrence Group will be a spectacular and visionary example of innovative residential design and execution that's not only affordable, but also highly functional and technologically advanced while still being tremendously inviting. Literally, at its core, the 1700 sqft two-story home will be made of reused shipping containers, which will make construction, in any environment, sustainable, fast, and safe.
Being built right on the tradeshow floor, the home will open to a series of outdoor living spaces and decks, showcasing a dramatic outdoor kitchen with energy efficient Whirlpool appliances, and a stunning garden of native and naturalized plants and mature olive trees.
Every aspect of the home's design, build, materials and features will be evaluated and documented to assure the home's Green Point and LEED for Homes certification and Zem Joaquin of ecofabulous fame is designing the interior that will leave you stunned.

And the winner is……
Harbinger House. We are excited to announce that the winner of our contest is Gregory Schaefer,, the resident chef on Planet Green’s Daily news show “The G Word”. Inspired by the “cutting edge” use of technology and recycling in the construction of the Showhouse, Gregory sees the Harbinger House as a symbol of “looking forward to the future of design and sustainability".
"By definition, a harbinger is something which allows us to see the future, a foretelling, a symbolic event or bridge. I think we usually are aware of these in hindsight, but here, today we can clearly see the future. The Harbinger House is a model of sustainable design that needs recognition for its forward thinking vision and creativity."
