Blu Homes simplifies home building through technology: Precision-builds homes from online 3-D models created by consumers for free online.

NEW YORK, April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- California and Massachusetts-based precision home builder, Blu Homes ( ), is improving the way Americans purchase new homes with the launch of a new version of its cutting-edge 3-D Configurator(TM). Anyone can access the Blu Configurator for free at and begin personalizing a Blu home. And now, users will also receive real-time pricing information based on each selected option, of which there are hundreds of thousands--from exterior siding and kitchen appliances to bathroom fixtures and cabinetry finishes.

Additional features of the new Configurator include:

Interactive pricing for all seven Blu home models, with real-time price calculations and updates for each spec chosen.

Location-specific pricing, based on the user's site selection.

PDF print out and Excel (CSV) output with all selected specs and associated pricing.

After choosing one of Blu's seven eco-friendly, architect-designed home models, users select their options and features in an easy to use, realistic 3-D environment. Since its October 2011 launch, over 10,000 home designs have been saved with the Configurator.

Unlike conventional architectural 3-D renderings, Blu is able to connect the 3-D models created in the Configurator back to Blu's precision-building process, creating a seamless integration between design and manufacturing and advancing construction quality significantly. Blu builds each home from the client's 3-D custom model, using precision tooling and trained craftsman in its climate-controlled factory in Vallejo, CA.
