LivingHomes recently introduced a new, lower cost prefab called the C6 and built two models to showcase to the world. Last week, we mentioned the Palm Springs C6 and this one is located in Long Beach, California (catch a tour Feb. 25, 2012 if you’re in the area). The home was designed by LivingHomes in collaboration with Make It Right, an endeavor by Brad Pitt and Bill McDonough, and was built to a LEED Platinum level environmental program with Cradle-to-Cradle inspired materials.
As mentioned previously, C6 is outfitted with James Hardie siding, Thermatru doors, Andersen windows, Verve lighting, GE kitchen and laundry appliances, a Nest thermostat, Kohler fixtures, Mosa tile, Millstead cork floors, Armstrong cabinets, and Staron countertops, etc.
The green prefab also features a patent-pending door handle designed by architect Bill McDonough that’s supposed to give the owners a dose of Zinc with every touch.
Built by Cavco, the three-bedroom, two-bath C6 has 1,232 square feet and is available in most states for about $185,000, depending on local costs, including permit-ready drawings and excluding things like permits, transport, install, landscape, and foundation. A portion of the proceeds from each C6 sale will go towards Make It Right.
