If your design palette is traditional, you’ll probably like the new Cottage Series by Studio 29 and Method Homes. The Cottage Series marries craftsman style with off-site fabrication in six floor plans. These have tiered pricing based on things like the materials, interior palette, and finish packages. For a general idea, pricing is between about $215,400 – $498,300 (not including separate, optional garage and ADU structures from $23,000).
I mentioned the Lindal Architects Collaborative in connection with the Taliesin Mod.Fab, but here’s another situation where the LAC comes into play. As background, LAC matches architects with the Lindal building system and dealer network, and architects get a new platform for their home designs through the Collaborative.
Marken Projects is working on another Passive House in British Columbia. This 3,500-square-foot home, made with a panelized prefab system like the Rainbow Duplex, will house two families and three generations under the same roof in Surrey, British Columbia. The aim is an affordable structure that uses 90% less energy for heating and cooling than a standard home. It’ll have triple-pane windows, an HRV, solar hot water, rainwater harvesting, no-VOC materials, and the ultra-efficient and airtight shell. Construction will take about five months, and I’ll provide an update with more detail at that time.
