Since we last mentioned his efficient home built for under $70,000, Caleb Schafer's been quite busy.  He has a new website for Simple Modern Homes with a number of new home designs.  He's also doing new work with new clients, and one home in particular looks interesting.  Referred to as CL24, the design is for a 2,000 square-foot green home in Canyon Lake, Texas. 


What's most interesting, perhaps, is the fact that CL24 will come in below $150,000, including land, utilities, and septic.  It's Texas — where land isn't necessarily scarce or expensive — but we definitely like this aggressive fusion of style and affordability.  

Schafer says Simple Modern Homes' designs are simple, but not one corner has been cut.  It's not about creating something that's cheap, it's about creating a no-frills, quality home. 

CL24 will be built with advanced framing techniques, spray biofoam insulation, galvalume siding, and a four-unit high efficiency heat pump mini-split system from Mitsubishi.  We'll circle back around when CL24 nears completion to follow up with more detail.
