I imagine you've heard the news this week from LivingHomes' headquarters in Santa Monica.  All LivingHomes, whether designed by Ray Kappe or KieranTimberlake, are now available throughout most of the United States.  In addition, the company — a pioneer in green prefab — announced a new prefab home model designed by Ray Kappe and wood-frame construction on all Kappe LivingHomes. 


LivingHomes will provide steel as an option for Kappe LivingHomes, but they'll be about 30% more expensive.  Steel works better in warmer climates, allows for large open spaces without columns, and is highly recycled. 

Pricing for a wood-framed home ranges from $392,000 for the RK4, a two-story, 1,700 square-foot home, to $698,000 for the RK1, a 3,100 square foot home.  Not included in this price is, of course, all upgrades, as well as transportation, installation, foundation, permitting, or land. 

The new model unveiled by LivingHomes is the RK6 shown above.  This 2,280 square-foot home is built with four modules and includes three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a bonus room.  Pricing starts at $544,200. 

LivingHomes' fresh news comes as Blu Homes (Massachusetts) continues to grow nationally with folding prefabs, and Rocio Romero (Missouri) rolls out stackable modules for her popular LV series of prefab homes. 

There's a lot of activity in the green prefab world these days, so stay tuned for the latest.
