HOM Escape in Style made its debut at Dwell on Design this weekend and drew a considerable crowd. Apartment Therapy said HOM was their favorite home on display, and Curbed liked its interior design. Of the three models that HOM plans for production, the (smaller) 1000 sf design was exhibited throughout the weekend in LA. HOM designs cost in the $200 psf range, which calculates to approximately $200,000 for a 1000 sf house.
In addition to providing a series of manufactured housing options, HOM has a product line of furniture, lighting, textiles, and accessories. They’re all made with natural, sustainable, non-toxic materials, such as FSC-certified woods, renewable cork flooring, and recycled leather.
One interesting aspect of these manufactured homes is that they’re characterized under the federal HUD code for manufactured housing. Similar to the modern designs we see with miniHome, HOM homes have an axle and wheels that are disguised by skirting and decking. But if you’re a little reluctant to pay $200 psf for a stylish manufactured home, the company’s website states their designs can also be built modularly through a general contractor. Give HOM a look.
