Blu Homes just announced a new prefab home design based on the famous Breezehouse, which was most recently featured by Sunset Magazine as the Idea House 2012. This is the eighth home design by the company, and it’s called Sidebreeze. The design features the same Breezespace with 12′ ceilings in parts, but there’s also a cantilevered second story with a master suite and balcony. This is a design that could be used when more space is needed or to take advantage of stunning views.
As mentioned earlier this week, a new Blu Homes prefab will open for tours this weekend, September 15-16, 2012, in Joshua Tree, California. The home was built for Tim Disney with two Origin units and a separate guest unit. Each Origin unit, to give you a ballpark on the value of a home like this, starts at $135,000 in California, according to information on the Blu Homes website.
Not to be outdone by Blue Sky, itHouse, or Siegal, California-based prefab company Blu Homes has a new home that will be open this weekend in Joshua Tree. This one was finished for Tim Disney, the great-nephew of Walt Disney and a board member and investor in Blu Homes, according to the Los Angeles Times.
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.
The Sunset Magazine Idea House that I mentioned a few months ago will open for public tours on August 3, 2012. Located in Healdsburg, California, the $2.65 million green prefab has 3,000 square feet and a 480-square-foot guest house with a total of five bedrooms and five bathrooms, according to Healdsburg Patch. The Idea House was fabricated by Blu Homes, developed by Rosemary Wardell, and designed on the inside by Sharon Portnoy. Drop by and tell us what you think if you get the opportunity to visit the Idea House.
