With all the recent achievements in modular building, prefab is no longer a dirty word. The latest design to prove that prefab can bring affordability and good design together is the C6, a new prefabricated house by LivingHomes. The C6 boasts 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, an open floor plan “and lots of storage, light and warmth,” and it’ll set you back only $179,000.
“This is our first affordable LivingHome. It was designed by LivingHomes staff in collaboration with Make It Right, a nonprofit founded by Brad Pitt and architect William McDonough to build 150 affordable, sustainable homes in New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward, the neighborhood hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each C6 will help support the efforts of Make It Right.”
You can even configure your own dream home right on LivingHomes’ site. Choose an LEED level from Certified to Platinum, how many square feet of decking you want and customize the interior with flooring, cabinet and appliance options. If you need more rooms or bigger space, there are options for that, too. No one said prefab meant cookie-cutter. All you need to build you very own dream house is a piece of land – though a sense of design and maybe a construction team might help.
