Today New Hampshire-based Bensonwood, an innovator in home building, announced the launch of a new brand of prefab homes called Unity Homes. With Unity Homes, the company expects to raise the bar for home construction without raising the price tag, too. There will be four diverse home collections — renderings of which are shown in this article — each with several configurations and two-four bedroom options, and all of the homes will use at least 50% (and up to 75%) less energy than a typical home on the market.
This is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom LV-model home by Rocio Romero in Los Angeles, California. Originally built in 2008, the modern prefab will be the subject of an open house on November 3, 2012 (register here), and this is actually the first Rocio Romero open house in Los Angeles. Bryce and Bianca’s LV Series home has solar panels, a water catchment system, French oak floors, a walnut kitchen, a Viking range, walnut furniture, and a deck that runs the length of the home creating canyon and skyline views.
