A More Affordable Prefab You Have to See to Believe

Mar 9 2014 - 5:02am

The allure of living in a sprawling prefab nestled on a scenic plot of land is undeniable, but is it accessible? With Blu Homes [1]' latest Breeze Aire [2] model, it might be. Modeled after the company's award-winning Sidebreeze [3] and Breezehouse [4] homes, the Breeze Aire offers a more affordable, compact option with a lot of the same perks. The two to three bedrooms/office options with two to two and a half bathrooms start at $350,000 — not too shabby for a custom home that can be built in less than seven months!

The Breeze Aire features the same recycled steel frames and cool folding technology found in other Blu Home models, which makes it possible to ship and assemble in such a tight time frame.

While clients can choose from a ton of customization options, it's nice to know that project management and design services are included in the price.

The open floor plans, high-end finishes, 17-foot ceilings, and vast walls of glass evoke the feeling of living in a souped-up version of a midcentury Eichler home.

Aside from using green building methods, the homes are energy efficient and also create a healthier living environment, thanks to features like radiant floor heating (no circulating dust and allergens) and nontoxic paints and materials. Eco perks aside, techies can also indulge in packages that offer integrated audio, zoned heating and cooling, motion sensor lights and faucets, and even Level 2 electric car chargers.
