There's a lot of news coming out of the prefab world these days and we thought it was time to mention a new line of modular green homes from Marmol Radziner Prefab called Locomo — or LOwer COst MOdular. With this new line, the company hopes to make “green prefab homes more available to individuals and small families,” said principal Leo Marmol in a statement.
Locomo models are prefabricated with wood framing and include anywhere from one to four bedrooms. Finish options include engineered bamboo flooring, Marmoleum flooring, dual-glazed low-E windows, and energy-efficient appliances.
These homes range in size from 800 to 2,200 square feet and can be factory-built in various locations throughout the country. Prices range from $200 to $250 per square foot, or $200,000 to $700,000, according to Dexigner.
Locomo prefabs are more affordable than others from Marmol Radziner Prefab — custom designs cost anywhere from $400 per square foot — but they’re not necessarily cheap. Yet this is the direction most observers expect from prefab, and we look forward to seeing Locomo homes in the future.
