Award-winning architecturally designed prefab houses from Blu® Homes are now available in the Hawai‘i, thanks to their newly-formed partnership with Cutting Edge Development, the first of many partnerships in the works to expand into the Hawai‘i market.
“When it comes to building in Hawai‘i, choices are limited and it’s expensive,” said Lars Wernars of Cutting Edge Development in a recent press release. “My team and I have been building green homes in Hawai‘i for many years and I’m excited to be partnering with Blu Homes to give Hawai‘i customers more options for beautiful, modern green homes that can be constructed in a short timeframe with limited impact on the environment.”
The eight models of energy efficient prefab homes by Blu Homes, from cottages and single-level studios on up to two-story four bedrooms, feature wide-open floor plans, sun-filled interiors, radiant heat flooring, high R-value walls, expansive windowed walls, and energy-efficient appliances. Customizable options include folding NanaWalls®, as well as other styles and finishes.
“Blu homes are a perfect fit for Hawai‘i. In addition to their beautiful design, Blu Homes addresses many of the unique challenges that developers and homebuilders in Hawai‘i face regularly—longer building times, high energy costs and extreme weather and seismic conditions,” said Brett Chisholm, Vice President of Blu Homes. “Plus, our homes are more than 30% more energy efficient than standard homes, have the highest corrosion coverage and can withstand Hawai‘i ’s weather—from hurricane-force winds and earthquakes to excessive moisture.”
