Blu Homes To Unveil First Prefab Home Model in Los Angeles
Blu Homes, a leader in green prefabricated homes and an exhibiting sponsor at Dwell on Design, announced today that the company will unveil its first model home in the Los Angeles area later this year. Like all Blu Homes, the model is LEED Silver certifiable and solar-ready, but this particular unit has a few adjustments tweaked to the Southern California lifestyle. Floor-to-ceiling windows, double-height ceilings, and an open floorplan are de rigeur in the Breezehouse design, while this unit sports 2,300 square feet of decking, larger bedrooms with walk-in closets, a walk-in shower in the master bath, folding Nanawalls on either side of the Breezespace and expanded storage, including a walk-in pantry.
Located on a hillside lot in Agoura Hills, a Los Angeles suburb north of Malibu, the 2,900 square foot Breezehouse will also feature a separate 24' Pod, ideal for a guesthouse, yoga room, art studio, or home office. The main house packs in four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and an attached garage. Breezehouses are manufactured in Blu Homes's California factory, transported by truck, and then "unfolded" on site.
