GreenPod Offers Full-Circle Home Design

Ludlow GreenPod

GreenPod, a company run by architect and environmentalist Ann Raab, designs and builds compact modular homes that are sustainable, healthy, and energy efficient.  The amazing thing about this company is their full-circle design approach, which aims to help clients create a complete green home right down to their bathroom towels and artwork. 

Truly, every detail has been considered, which tells you that this company really cares about sustainable building and living.  They start with clearing the land using a "tree eater" instead of an invasive excavating process — this greatly reduces the impact on the vegetation and precious topsoil.



Then, they work with a woman from Australia who specializes in organic gardening and permaculture and local artists and furniture makers using green materials.  The cherry on top is the woman who will design and create luxurious accessories such as bathrobes, curtains, bedding etc. uses sustainable and traceable materials. 

GreenPod also promotes the use of existing structures and furnishings in order to reduce the need for new materials.  The compact feature of the homes is also wonderful.  The designer maximizes use of the space by creating movable walls, multi-use furnishings, and lighting to visually expand the spaces. 

Pricing is incredibly reasonable with plans ranging from $100,000 to $240,000 and GreenPod can even help you to find financing for your project.  GreenPod’s designs are some of the most versatile, attractive, and truly earth-friendly homes on the market — and you can probably afford one too!  Learn more about the company on their website.

    I like the designs and they seem very affordable. Does anyone know how many of these pods have been built and where they are located? I was also trying to find the square footage on the various pods and couldn’t find that information either. If anyone knows any information please post.
    Thank you.

    I have a problem with all of these prefab projects looking too much like a mobile home, but I have to say that I really like these. Cool!

    I recently saw that LP released some very encouraging data on their TechShield radiant barrier. It can save upwards of 17% on energy costs and reduced carbon dioxide by 567,710 TONS in the past decade. They also have some interesting green tid bits on their website ( I thought it was very cool that they are helping folks realize just how innovative and green building products can be…and not just for commercial biulds! Additionally, for existing homes, LP is releasing a new foil product that can be installed in your attic space for the same type of benefits as their radiant barrier. Cool stuff for new builds and existing homes!
