This is C6, the first low-cost LivingHome and the only “Zero Energy, Zero Carbon production home ever to feature a LEED Platinum level environmental program and Cradle-to-Cradle inspired materials,” according to California-based green prefab company, LivingHomes. It was designed by LivingHomes in collaboration with Make It Right, which was founded by Brad Pitt and Bill McDonough, and will open for tours this month in Palm Springs, California (and there’s also one in Long Beach).
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.
C6 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.
Together, the products and design facilitate a California-style, indoor-outdoor experience that makes a total 1,232 square feet feel a lot bigger than it is.
The three-bedroom, two-bath C6 sells complete from ~$179,000, 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.
