We've noted the fabulous work of Michelle Kaufmann Designs before; her Breezehouse and Glidehouse designs are just about as good as it gets when it comes to energy-efficient, resource-efficient, TreeHugger-friendly prefab housing, and it just keeps getting better. Kaufmann's newest design, the recently launched mkSolaire is an open, spacious, loft-like home is designed to offer healthy living in the city. Through the use of strategically designed roofs and windows, this home addresses the challenge of the standard row house by sculpting light and air into the center of the home. The home itself can be built in as little as 14 months from consultation to finish, and is constructed with a bevy of sustainable materials, systems and options.
There are also a variety of options for floorplans and design features; as with all MKD homes, customizing for site, budget and lifestyle is always an option. The factory costs for the homes typically range from $150 to $175 per square foot, plus transportation and installations, as well as any additional site costs depending on location, complexity of site, and scope of site work. Lots more information available at their website. ::Michelle Kaufmann Designs via ::MoCo Loco
