Where modern design, affordable living and sustainability meet, there is CABN. The first home of this project has just been created and soon, CABN’s design will be the basis of a 67-home, net-zero community. If this is what the future looks like, there is hope that humans will actually have a healthy, happy future on this planet.
CABN is net-zero, modular housing that’s also cost-efficient. The prefabricated pieces are easy to assemble anywhere. The construction strategy for putting these homes together is so unique, it’s been registered for a patent.
Additionally, CABN homes are put together with FSC-Certified timber. Low-impact waste and water solutions are integrated into the design. All CABN buildings are made to be net-zero thanks to a low energy consumption design. Solar technology and battery storage are also part of the design, which includes high-performance heating and cooling systems. Smart home technology is also included. CABN homes monitor themselves to track water and waste systems.
Moreover, these homes are fully off-grid capable and can literally be assembled anywhere, from a sandy beach to a rocky mountain top to a bustling city. The design is utterly stunning. CABN combines the sharp angles and simple, minimalist look of the modern era with the warmth of wood. Huge windows let in a lot of natural light, filling the interiors with brightness and warmth.
Furthermore, there are several different CABN designs to choose from. Choose a one-bedroom, two-bedroom, three-bedroom or four-bedroom unit. Each floor plan is full of wide-open, airy spaces and outside porch space. CABN homes combine modern beauty with a bit of rustic charm that pays homage to nature. And shouldn’t nature always be a part of every building design going forward?
CABN homes truly focus on nature and all that it can provide. It’s well past the time that home design and communities should make that a focus. With companies like CABN leading the way, maybe this will become more common all over the world.
