As mentioned a couple weeks ago, Oregon-based Ideabox created a new prefab in collaboration with IKEA Portland for the Portland Home & Garden Show going on right now, February 22-26, 2012. In case you’re not in the area, here are some photos of the fresh new home. Ideabox Aktiv features tons of IKEA products and showcases a cost-effective home that can be built with open spaces, vaulted ceilings, and clean lines.
This is the Blanco River House by Austin-based Ma Modular. The home, located in Wimberley, Texas, has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, 1,400 square feet, and tons of outdoor deck space. Ma Modular delivered the prefab home with 2×6 exterior wall construction, Gerkin windows with thermally broken frames, a Galvalume double-lock standing-seam metal roof, and an Energy Star heating and cooling system, etc. All together, this home was built for $140 per square foot.
This is C6, the first low-cost LivingHome and the only “Zero Energy, Zero Carbon production home ever to feature a LEED Platinum level environmental program and Cradle-to-Cradle inspired materials,” according to California-based green prefab company, LivingHomes. It was designed by LivingHomes in collaboration with Make It Right, which was founded by Brad Pitt and Bill McDonough, and will open for tours this month in Palm Springs, California (and there’s also one in Long Beach).
