Seattle-based Method Homes recently announced that they were building this incredible prefab home for Greenbuild 2012 in San Francisco, California. The 722 square-foot modular home will be the only residential structure on display during the event and acts as a prototype for a new series of homes — the Method Paradigm Series — by Method Homes and New York-based Bogue Trondowski Architects.
The prototype Paradigm home will target LEED Platinum certification, as well as 6 of 7 petals of the Living Building Challenge and net-zero energy and water, according to Method Homes.
Features of the home include a super-insulated envelope, wooden cladding and decking, rooftop solar, a ductless mini-split HVAC system, HRV ventilation, bamboo floors and cabinets, LED lighting, home automation, rainwater harvesting, a greywater system, and a composting toilet, etc.
If you’re in Washington, Method Homes will have an open factory to showcase the Paradigm house before it ships to San Francisco. That will be on Saturday, November 3, 2012, from 1 pm – 5 pm, at 6819 Northgate Way, Ferndale, WA, 98248, after which the prototype will be somewhere on the road or in front of Moscone Center.
