Located in a private setting with views of the Santa Ynez mountains, the 1,600 sq ft home has a 320 square-foot garage and a courtyard deck that expands the living space outdoors. Eco-friendly materials include micro-strip birch hardwood and Marmoleum flooring, low VOC paints, dual flush toilets, super-insulated wall and roof construction, and recycled content quartz slab countertops. A standing seam metal roof reflects over 30% of the sun’s energy and large overhangs provide tons of cool shade underneath. All Stillwater Dwellings homes feature high-efficiency lighting, high-performance insulation, passive coolingdesign, Energy Star appliances, and high-efficiency water fixtures.

The homes are built in a controlled factory for precision building to ensure quality and energy efficiency. The prefab firm has a number of predesigned homes you can choose from or you can choose your own. Designing the homes is even easier with an A-B-C step process. Step A – choose your living module from one of six options. Step B – add a connector module that is designed with a universal connector, so they all fit together. Step C – choose your bedroom modules(s), with options for extra offices, mudrooms, bedrooms and garages. Prices for these butterfly-roofed homes start at less than $200/sq ft and include all architecture, structural engineering, and state permit fees.
