New LABhaus Prefab Home in New Jersey

It’s only been three months since we first mentioned this New Jersey prefab, yet the modern LABhaus is complete and the owners are spreading their wings in the new place.  The single-family home has 2,438 square feet with a basement, four bedrooms, and three baths.  It was built with the owners’ budget of $340,000 and includes beautiful green and luxurious elements.

Made with five factory-built modules, the LABhaus has polyurethane SIP walls (R40), an insulated foundation (R13), insulation between floor levels (R19), and a roof assembly with 7″ of polyurethane foam, 5″ of blown cellulose, and 2-4″ of rigid foam (R60+).

The exterior is clad in a low-maintenance combination of synthetic stucco and fiber cement.  Inside, the home has an ultra-efficient heat pump system, on-demand hot water, and pre-wiring for a state-subsidized solar array to be installed later.

Fixtures and fittings include Duravit wall-hung toilets, Kohler sinks, a Kohler Karbon kitchen faucet, Kohler Stance bathroom faucets, Omnia steel hardware, Corian countertops, and Energy Star Jenn-Air appliances.

The floors are white oak planks from sustainably harvested North American forests and the modern cabinets were sourced locally by LABhaus.

With the Energy Star appliances, high-efficiency systems, and well-insulated shell, the home isn’t expected to use much energy.  That and the LABhaus was built for about 50-70% less than similar homes in the area, making this one interesting precedent as a factory-built, low-energy, attainable, and modern home on the East Coast.

     Well out of most folks budget…but I love this now if we could just do a version for $100K.

      Thanks for the comment Benjamin.  It is out of the budget for many, but I’d say this is one of the more affordable prefabs we’ve seen given the materials, construction, and size.

        Hi Preston. Was the above statement ever verified? Are the homeowners experiencing issues with the house?

    Fabulous!  All that is missing is a garage.

       Actually, digging deeper through the links the plan shows it has a one car garage and carport.  VERY NICE :)
