Blu Homes just announced a new home style — the Lofthouse — designed by the company’s architects to “appeal to traditionalists and modernists alike.“  The modern version eliminates shutters, expands the windows, and provides an indoor/outdoor living experience.  The traditional version has Colonial-style windows and shutters to fit in an existing or historic neighborhood.

Blu Homes has expanded from its Massachusetts origins and now has a presence in California.  The company uses proprietary technology to build these homes in a factory, fold them up for shipment, send them out nationally, install in about one day, and then button everything up with Blu Homes craftspeople in about two weeks.

Each Lofthouse is projected to have 50% energy savings over a comparably-sized existing home.  Materials are chosen for durability and low maintenance, while the factory build allows for 50-70% less waste during construction.

Lofthouse has an open two-story living room with an overlooking loftspace, two-, three- and four-bedroom floorplan options, open or separate dining areas, and several interior and exterior finish options, according to a press release.  Pricing starts at $355,000.
