Blu Homes continues to dominate the green prefab world. Today the company announced the relaunch of Glidehouse, a gorgeous home originally made famous by Michelle Kaufmann. Glidehouse will be available nationally and built in Blu's own factory using the company's proprietary steel and wood framing system. The new Glidehouse retains all of the signature features of the old design and can be purchased for $360,000+.
When constructed, Glidehouse will be airtight, energy efficient, and built to the standards of the American Lung Association Healthy House program. More specifically, green elements include no-VOC paints, dual-pane windows and doors, FSC certified woods, bamboo flooring, PaperStone countertops, etc.
Massive window walls give Glidehouse fabulous panoramic views, while retractable cedar sunshades can be used to filter light and air as needed.
The home is available with 2-4 bedrooms, 2-3 bathrooms, and anywhere from 1,632-2,244 square feet. Moreover, an optional pod is available from $75,000.
Pricing includes the house, standard materials and finishes, delivery, set up, and finish work by Blu Homes. Pricing does not include permits, excavation, foundation, finish painting, outdoor elements, and some engineering aspects.
