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.
