Utilizing modern pre-fabrication building technology this home was built off-site in four modules while simultaneously the site grading, utilities and foundations were completed. The modules were then shipped from the factory and re- assembled on site, significantly reducing both construction costs and time, delivering the highest quality structure at the best value.
To stay within strict budgetary boundaries this custom home is of modest size and simple form that recalls unpretentious farm structures. Extensive decks expand the interiors by allowing for indoor-outdoor living that takes advantage of the mild climate and ample views. Non-combustible metal standing seam roofing and fiber cement board and batten cladding conform to local urban wildfire requirements, while reinforcing the agrarian theme, albeit, with a clean, modern twist. Practical features include various energy efficiencies, water conservation measures and environmentally responsible materials.
This house may be an example of a new, post-recession, approach to home building – modern, sensible and efficient.
