If you’re in the Napa County and have an interest in modern prefab, an LV Home by Missouri-based Rocio Romero will be featured in open house public tours on September 22, 2012 (register here). So you know, the LV model comes as a fabricated kit of parts — post and beam, exterior wall panels, faux wall panels, roof framing, select connectors, and siding material — and forms the shell of a home with two bedrooms, one bathroom, and about 1,344 square feet. We’ve mentioned at least two LV homes in the past, one in Pacifica and another in Whidbey Island, and these homes generally get finished by a local contractor for $120 – $195 per square foot with the LV kit starting at $39,500.
Following the sale of Beachaus I, a contemporary prefab in the White Rock area of British Columbia, the neighboring Beachaus II now hits the market with a price tag of $1,275,000. The LEED Platinum home — three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, 2,025 square feet — was designed by Pb Elemental, fabricated by Method Homes, and developed by InHaus Development.
As you know, Sunset Magazine selected the Breezehouse by Blu Homes for the 2012 Idea House (last year it was a solar-powered container house). After we posted an initial article about the completed home, Blu sent us some more photos and a time-lapse video of the on-site build process. Watch the modules drop in place and walls fold down in button-up work. If you want to see the home in person, the modern prefab is open for tours every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10 am – 5 pm through September 9, 2012.
