Following the debut of its stunning steel-framed modular housing system a few years ago, Phoenix-based ASUL Adaptable Systems has unveiled a one-of-a-kind backyard addition for a family in Georgia. The company worked with Savannah-based CSCP Consult to build the comfortable 320-square-foot Think Tank home office space.
ASUL’s prefab home system allows for easy customization and can be adapted to any type of site. In the case of the Savannah extension, the site was within a FEMA-regulated flood zone, which was easily dealt with thanks to the modular nature of ASUL’s structures. The on-site build took around three weeks. The construction work included building a light-gauge steel frame, wall insulation, floors and ceiling cavities, interior solar shades with 5% light penetration, recessed LED lighting and a galvalume skin.
The extension rests on six-foot stilts and has a 16’ x 20’ interior which can be used as a library, study or office space. The interior floor tiles have around 44% recycled content while some of the furniture and lighting fixtures, like chairs , tables and lamps, were found on eBay. The project cost was about $59,000, including permits. Around $10,000 was spent in order to meet FEMA’s requirements for building in a flood zone.
