This is a tough category, because it probably should be two categories: the primary home and the smaller second home or cabin. The clever Passivhaus GO-Home has been racking up the awards for good reason, as has the R-Home in Syracuse.

The House in France by Djuric Tardio Built of Prefab Finnish Larch Panels is a full time residence; Tom Kundig's Sol Duc Cabin is not. I am not sure about Fabio Galeazzo' s Stunning 600 Sq. Foot Recycled Cabin.
