PH-1 Modern and Green Prefab Home by Place Architects

PH-1 Modern and Green Prefab Home by Place Architects | Container Architecture | Scoop.it

PLACE houses provides smart, affordable, and green prefab homes to the Puget Sound marketplace and beyond. Prefab not only describes the construction method but the process as all decisions are made upfront. Pick a model and finish package and six months later move into your new home!

The first of the PLACE houses completed, PH-1 is an expanded PH Large with an additional Accessory building featuring parking for two and office space above. Built for a busy family of five plus dogs, the stock design was adapted to create a 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath open plan home that’s stylish, durable, colorful and fun.

Solar domestic hot water supplements household systems and entirely heats the backyard lap pool; green construction saves money and resources, and the house is always filled with natural light, fresh air, views – and friends and family. Modular construction will allow 70% of the home to be factory built allowing for quicker project timelines and price points roughly 10% less than when our houses were “kit” homes...
