LEED CERTIFIED MODULAR HOME:
Wow! This episode of Next Home is looking ahead.
This modular house was created by Blu Homes and it is a leed certified home in Malibu CA that really has some very advanced features and technology. It’s a modular home that’s built in a huge factory in northern CA and shipped to the site. They then unfold the steel structure an put it all together. Definetely a vision of the future that’s a reality today!
We tore out everything, raised the ceiling height and enlarged the door opening to the front room (the one on the left side – previously it was narrow and much lower)
We put the flooring down under all the cabinetry – something we were recommended to do. I would NOT do that again. If there is a flood, the flooring will swell and can ruin countertops and cabinetry.
TIP – do not put flooring under cabinetry. Put in cabinetry, the put flooring around it.
Finished! Love the results! The kitchen looks and feels much bigger!
