The Graham Residence, a desert prefab that we previewed last February, is now complete. The Blue Sky Homes project is located in Yucca Valley and was designed by o2 Architecture. Solterra Development was the general contractor and completed the kit home with a galvanized, light-gauge steel frame and several energy-efficient elements.
125 Haus is a home under construction that could become a model for next-gen housing that’s extremely energy and cost efficient. Architect and owner Jörg Rügemer* expects this to be Utah’s most energy-efficient and cost-effective house, which is saying a lot given the fact that the Breezeway House obtained Passive House certification on a budget. When complete, 125 Haus will have three bedrooms, a studio, and 2,400 square feet with an expected construction cost of $118 per square foot.
