Gallery: LivingHomes Announces National Availability of Ray Kappe’s Gre...

 

Fabulous prefab design just became more accessible as LivingHomes has announced that homes by award-winning architect Ray Kappe will be available at lower cost on a national scale. The six Kappe designs now available nationwide come chock-full of all the green features that LivingHomes are known for, delivering high quality design in a sustainable package.

According to founder Steve Glen, the wood–framed models (which are preferable in cold weather) are 30% less expensive than the steel-framed versions. That means you can have a 1,700 square-foot, two-story home for $392,000 or upgrade to a 3,100 square-foot home for $698,000.

Some specific sustainable features included in all LivingHomes models are: recycled steel and/or sustainably grown or reclaimed wood, automatic mini-duct air distribution and ventilation systems, recycled wood/bamboo siding flooring, recycled glass tiles, photovoltaics, formaldeyhde-free and low-VOC finishes, paints and stains, high-performance windows with recycled frames, and low-flow bathroom fixtures with grey-water plumbing.

    Too Expensive. We can build a site built green home for less cost. This is just a fad catching people with more money than they know what to do with to buy an over priced pre-built green house. I have seen some very efficiency manufactured homes with green upgrades for much less cost.

    The prices of these things are completely ridiculous! Why do green homes have to be so prohibitively expensive?? And a pre-fab at that???!!! Why would anyone want go through all the extra expense of a $300,000 plus pre-fab when you can pick up one of the dime-a-dozen foreclosures in your city for about half that? Green builders really need to wake up and get it together.
