Well, if you didn’t have a reason to visit Las Vegas in January 2009, maybe we could give you one now. Builder is teaming up with LivingHomes and KieranTimberlake to place this beautiful, green prefab on the exhibit floor of the Las Vegas Convention Center at the International Builders’ Show (IBS) 2009. The modern 2000 sf prefab will be built with steel-wood modules and an abundant list of sustainable materials. Its ostensible purpose, I believe, is to show the industry that modular construction can be financially accessible, sustainable, and optimal for eliminating construction waste and debris.
In addition to exceeding California’s Title 24 energy standards, the Builder LivingHome will be built to both the NAHB green building guidelines and LEED for Homes rating system. It will not obtain a certification, however, until it’s moved to an actual building site. Wonder where that could be?
