After last year’s success with the Reclaimed Space prefab, which sold on eBay for $75,000, Ecofabulous decided to do another. This time they teamed up with Seattle prefab builder OneBuild and LA-based prefab designer, pieceHomes. The 550 sq ft house includes a kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom, and was built completely off site and then trucked into the LA convention center for the Dwell on Design show. The compact home makes use of varied ceiling heights and lots of natural daylight to make it seem bigger than it really is. Surprisingly enough, the home features a concrete subfloor with radiant heating, which is not typical for prefab homes.
Product sponsors like Electrolux donated materials and appliances to outfit the eco prefab home, which also included plyboo cabinets, cork flooring, Lumens LED lights, FSC-certified and low maintenance EcoClad cladding, recycled-content IceStone counters, Modwalls recycled-content tile, and much more. Zem Joaquin worked her magic and completely styled the home, which features furniture from HD Buttercup. The home also has rooftop solar panels.
Michela O’Conner Abrams, President of Dwell Media LLC, praised the home, “The showhouse by ecofabulous and pieceHomes is the perfect marriage of leading edge modern design and sustainability. Anyone seeking ‘home as sanctuary’ will love everything about this house, inside and out!” The auction starts on July 5th and leaves you 10 days to make your bid on eBay. Remember all the proceeds are being donated!
