This is one of the latest sustainable prefab homes from Seattle-based Stillwater Dwellings. The home has three bedrooms, two and a half baths, and 2,300 square feet with a signature soaring butterfly roofline, a great room, and 360-degree views of Sauvie Island, Mount St. Helen, Mount Hood, and Mount Rainier. After solar panels are installed, the owners expect to submit paperwork in line with LEED Gold certification.
The green prefab doesn’t have interior supporting walls, yet Stillwater was able to deliver a space that’s 42′ wide, 17′ deep, and 12’6″ tall. It was shipped with a tilt-up roof that rests flat during transport and pops up with clerestory windows during site work.
Inside, the home has museum-quality lighting, a whole-house in-wall touchpad, and iPhone-controlled monitoring and AV systems.
The owners received quotes from other firms to permit, design, and build a custom home of this quality. Pricing came in at about $1.8 million; however, Stillwater was able to deliver a home with a total cost of about $880,000 less than the others.
Other than pricing, which is fixed and set from the front end, Stillwater Dwellings prides itself on providing a smooth design and build process. Stillwater uses current technology to understand the client’s needs, make design modifications, and establish a predictable construction schedule.
