It's been a great week for prefab enthusiasts — with news from LivingHomes, KitHAUS, and Blu Homes — but there's still more. Recently, developers at Kootenay Lake Village completed this LVL prefab near Nelson, British Columbia. The new home has double insulated walls, high grade energy efficient windows, low-flow bathroom fixtures, and a green roof, just to name a few of its green features.
Rocio Romero, the architect behind the LV series of prefab homes, just announced the availability of stackable prefabs. Referred to as the LV2 — a 2-story stack placed on any LV series unit, the custom add-on costs the same as regular LV series units. Rocio Romero has sold over a hundred LVs and says the average cost to build, including the kit, shipping, foundation, and finish costs, is about $120 per square foot (not including land).
I'm amazed by what can be found on Flickr. Just in the last couple weeks, someone posted photos of their friend's LVL home by Rocio Romero. It's quite nice both inside and out. And we've talked about Rocio Romero prefabs before, including this Napa LV Home and this Arkansas LVL Home, and what's interesting is: how they're customized. Every Rocio Romero home starts with a primary focus on quality, sustainability, and design — from there, owners tend to add their own personality to the inside and out.
Have you ever wanted to walk through a prefab or see what the excitement is about in person? If you live on the west coast, the opportunity to walk through a prefab happens fairly frequently. Just wait for the right conference or event and you'll hear about a tour or walk through. Now, two hours north of San Francisco in Napa County (Pope Valley), there's a Rocio Romero prefab open for tour, rental, or even for commercial photo, movie, and production shoots.
