If you're at all considering prefab for your next home, we highly suggest touring one (or several). During the month of September, you can visit two prefab homes by Rocio Romero. On September 22nd you can check out a 2-bedroom LV prefab in Pope Valley, California and on the 23rd see one in Pacifica. Missouri-based Rocio Romero has been designing and building prefab home kits since 1999 and has fabricated over 150 homes. Get a chance to speak with the owners and company representatives to learn more about the contemporary LV series, their eco-friendly features and the prefab process.
Rocio Romero’s LV prefab homes are a celebration of glass, light, steel as well as a simple, uncluttered and eco-friendly design. They are manufactured in Missouri into a kit of parts, which are flat packed and shipped to the home’s location. This kit of parts includes posts and beams, exterior wall panels, faux wall panels, roof framing, select connectors, and siding material. A local contractor then takes all the materials and builds the home following the assembly instructions. The homeowners and their contractor are responsible for preparing the site, obtaining permits, landscaping and interior finish work. Homes are estimated to cost about $120-$195 per square foot to build.
Two of the more recent homes to be completed are the LV in Pope Valley and a LV in Pacifica, CA. Both feature the same signature contemporary and simplistic designs, although each are decorated quite differently. Here we show images of the Pope Valley near Napa set in a scenic landscape surrounded by vineyards. The home sits on a small level gravel plot with a large deck to the front and sheltered with a rock retaining wall to the rear. The tour in Pope Valley is open to the public for $15 a person and the Pacifica tour is private to give potential clients a chance to speak in detail with company representatives. Register for tours on the 22nd and 23rd of September on Rocio Romero’s site.
