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.
