The Graham Residence, a desert prefab that we previewed last February, is now complete. The Blue Sky Homes project is located in Yucca Valley and was designed by o2 Architecture. Solterra Development was the general contractor and completed the kit home with a galvanized, light-gauge steel frame and several energy-efficient elements.
Following on the success of a prototype prefab in Yucca Valley, Blue Sky Homes plans to break ground this month on another prefab in the same area. Like the prototype, the home will be built with a light-gauge steel framing system and STEPs (steel thermally efficient panels), which are pre-cut and attach to the exterior during assembly.
This 800-square foot Clearlake itHouse is under construction in California right now. Similar to another itHouse that we mentioned previously, the home will be off-grid and solar-powered. It will also be the first, elevated, above-ground itHouse, leaving the site relatively untouched by the structure.
