This is Beachaus I in the White Rock area of British Columbia. The home (like the neighbor, Beachaus II) is on the market, should you have an interest in a luxe, modern, prefabricated home with incredible views. Beachaus — located at 15611 Columbia Avenue — is waiting for LEED certification from the CAGBC and has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, a two-car garage, and about 2,085 square feet.
News of this 96-square-foot micro cabin was first published at Tiny House Listings a few months back, though you may start seeing it on sites all over the web. The tiny house was conceived and built in Finland by Robin Falck with a footprint purposely small enough to not need permits. Falck enlisted the help of architects to vet the technical aspects and built the tiny house in two weeks for about $10,500 (just the materials). That includes views, a 50-square-foot loft, kitchen, bathroom, and a living room.
Today, two prefab veterans launch their website for a new company called Connect:Homes with a mission to “deliver modern homes that are affordable, green, and available wherever your are.” The co-founders Jared Levy and Gordon Stott, both formerly with Marmol Radziner Prefab, started the Los Angeles-based enterprise to reinvent modular prefab and deliver homes that are predictably priced, inherently green, and shipped most anywhere at a lower cost.
