As a follow up to our recent article about prefabs and tiny houses by ClearSpace Homes, I want to share this 182-square foot studio already built by the company. It’s a showroom for ClearSpace Homes, outfitted with a concealed fastener steel siding, Hardie lap siding, zero-VOC paints, strand woven bamboo floors, soy-based spray foam insulation, white modified rubber roofing, LED lighting, CFL lights, and reclaimed wood detail. The studio, which costs about $28,500, includes a built in desk, microwave, fridge, and storage.
This new home — Neptune Norte — is located in Encintas just a stone’s throw from the beach. The $6,995,000 beach pad has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, two half bathrooms, and about 5,347 square feet, but with the green features, Neptune Norte is supposed to use about 54% less energy than a new home built to the code.
