You’ve probably already seen miniHome – a small, mobile, eco-friendly prefab built with clean lines and modern elements – which has been featured all over the news and television. Sustain Design Studio, a Toronto firm behind the home, just launched a redesigned miniHome to be built in the company’s newly established factory in Bracebridge, Ontario. The new miniHome is lighter, better, and more affordable.
I recently mentioned the construction of Greenfab‘s model home in Seattle, and that home is now complete. I think you’ll agree, it’s just as warm and handsome as the renderings. The six-module abode — on target for LEED Platinum and Built Green 5-Star certification — has 1,790 square feet with three bedrooms, two and three-quarters bathrooms, a separate mother-in-law space, a planted rooftop deck, and an urban chicken coop.
This weekend, Karoleena Custom Homes, a home builder in Calgary, will debut its first eco-friendly modular cabin. Karo Cabin is a factory-built, future-ready structure designed to be used as a summer escape, backyard studio, laneway house, or something similar and can be delivered anywhere in North America (assuming a road or ferry route).
