Our

PROCESS

We believe that building your Blu home should be an easy and rewarding collaboration from start to finish. So we've developed a simple, modern build process which sets us apart from outdated, expensive traditional construction.

We kick off with a site visit that informs our team as they work with you to conceptualize the best home for your land.
The concept phase includes:
Preliminary Delivery
Assessment
Whether you own land or are still looking, we'll send out our team to advise you on the benefits and challenges of each site and how best to deliver your home based on an in-depth site review.
Conceptual
Design
Your Blu team will work with you to review your budget and finalize your layout to create conceptual plans. Based on these plans, we can provide a project estimate and timeline.
Code and Zoning
Research
Every state and local administration can be different when it comes to regulations. Your Blu team will verify the feasibility of your project so it's designed and built to meet local requirements.

First we submit your complete plans to state authorities.

Since all Blu homes are inspected by the state in our Mare Island factory your home will have already passed inspection prior to arrival.

Next, plans will be submitted for local approval.

We have a team of project managers who have successfully handled local jurisdictions and additional requirements.

Mare Island, CA
Your home is built in our 250,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art factory.

Our Mare Island factory is unique for its quality controlled environment that allows for precision crafted manufacturing. Because the process is not held up by the elements, your home is built in less time, with less waste, than traditional site-built homes.
Happening in Tandem

While your home is being built in the factory, our team works with your local contractors to ready the homesite. From excavation and grading to foundation work and septic, our land prep process can be twice as fast as a conventional build.

Your Blu home is now ready to make its journey from the factory to its final stop where your team will install it to perfection within a few short weeks.
