v100 Mod Box Homes Unveiled in Phoenix

When I first saw what Vine Saccento was doing with v100 Mod Box, I was impressed.  And I’m still impressed as his prototype has been rolled out recently in the form of three prefab homes at the southern end of downtown Phoenix at 749 S. Second Street.  One is rented by Tom Kelly, CEO of Schaller Anderson, and designer Saccento is living in another.

The prefab homes rent for the going rate of $875, which includes two 10-foot boxes that sandwich a covered deck space of eight-by-10 feet.  One box has the living room and kitchen, while the other has the bedroom and bathroom.

I hope to share some better photos of these prefabs in the future, though a slideshow is available for viewing on the Phoenix Business Journal.  As you can see, the interior is finished with luxe items such as a Duravit sink, LG Hi-MACS countertops, and Fagor induction cooktop, fridge, and combo washer/dryer. The dark walnut cabinetry is by Saccento’s business partner, Robert Mazzullo.

The build is proprietary, but Saccento says these homes are not built with nails, screws, paint, or drywall — believe it or not.  So the result is unlike anything else on the market and could be used as workforce houses, ADUs, lofts, studios, sheds, you name it.

    Yeh Right. fooled by the phases no paint and no nails. These are simply factory items. Looks like 90% marketing to me, and a video made by a grade 5 music class….

    very efficient. I stopped to see them. There is even free electric vehicle charging on 2 BLINK J1772 pods between the homes. Close to all downtown PHX too.

    Hey people, I live in a 1965 mobilehome that is 10x50ft. My mh park has lots of different mh’s that have terrific use of space…like houseboat+mh space design useage…why do people go crazy for new stuff when some old stuff is so much better?? I went to the microdwell show too and I kept thinking that mh’s did it better already years ago. If mobilehomes are made with super insulation (costs just a little more) and a few other low cost minor tweaks like low flow faucets and showerheads and greywater reuse for narrow but deep container edible and flower gardens with drip irrigation around them and LED bulbs I think they are the ultimate in microdwellings! If interested email me and I’ll send a photo of my place with plants and trees all around. loraboge@phreego.com
    I’d like to create or live in an eco-mobilehome park for artists and creatives, etc. With low rent and solar and community gardens, etc. For old hippies and young creatives, and their friends etc.
    It would be fun and cool to remake mh parks into creative enclaves and give them a new spin for the new age.
