LivingHomes had the honor of building the first LEED Platinum certified home in the US, and now they’re on schedule to deliver the first LEED Platinum certified home in Orange County. The new KieranTimberlake LivingHome 1.5 (KTLH1.5) was erected earlier this month in a single day. Located in the city of Newport Beach, we carry no doubts that the home will be LEED Platinum certified given LivingHomes‘ track record.
The new 2,200 sqaure feet includes 2 bedrooms and a bonus room. The interior features an impressive array of green systems that make this new home super sustainable including: an automatic ventilation system, recycled wood/bamboo siding, solar powered photovoltaics by SunTech, high-performance windows with recycled frames, and low-flow Kohler bathroom and grey-water plumbing.
Looking to install a LivingHomes prefab but not in California? No worries! Prior to the launch of KTLH1.5, LivingHomes went about establishing network of fabricators so they can serve nearly every state on the mainland and deliver the homes at an average price of $275 per square foot. In a rush? Also not a problem – the new owners of the Newport Beach home will be moved in within a month after install. The entire process took fewer than four months from start to finish, which beats the usual one year wait with prefab homes.
