When we first brought news of Method Homes in April, we were pretty excited because they were cruising along with construction at a pretty quick clip. Their design was mountain modern and the founders, Bryan Abramson and Mark Rylant, were executing on a plan to build this smart green home in three months.
Now Method Homes' first foray into green prefab is met with success as the home is complete — it looks gorgeous and exudes the company's "Down to Earth Prefab" tagline. The cabin home is currently available for tours and, if you like it, you can place an order for your own.
Designed by Balance Associates, the Method Home Cabin was built off-site, which minimized construction materials waste by ~50%. As you would imagine also with a home aiming for LEED-H Gold certification, it was built with locally sourced and renewable materials, energy efficient lighting and plumbing fixtures, hydronic radiant heating, efficient insulation, a whole house ventilation system, and other natural materials.
Located in Glacier, Washington near Mt. Baker, it's hard not to notice that this is a cabin, a second home. We know how that discussion goes … but compared to most, it's unassuming at roughly 1800 sf and leaves a light footprint. For that, I commend Method Homes and look forward to seeing what comes next.
