Blu launches precision-built garage line with unique design and eco-friendly features.

SAN FRANCISCO and WALTHAM, MA—April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Responding to overwhelming demand from customers, California and Massachusetts-based green, precision homebuilder Blu Homes (www.bluhomes.com) is now offering garages and carports to go with every Blu design. With this addition, Blu continues its commitment to beautiful, integrated products that give homebuyers, developers and institutions a multitude of options for designing their own home, retreat or community. The first set of designs is now available and can be viewed at (http://www.bluhomes.com/homes/garage/)

“So many of our clients have asked us for garages, and we are very excited to now offer a beautifully-designed, environmentally-conscious garage line,” said Brett Chisholm, VP Sales – Americas. “This makes the process even easier for customers, for whom Blu has truly become a one-stop-shop for realizing a beautiful, efficient home.” Several clients have already purchased a garage, and Blu expects that more than half its clients will integrate a Blu garage into their project.

Blu’s garages and carports are designed by a team of talented designers and architects and include fun, modern, and functional design elements. Blu’s Creative Director Karl Daubmann explains, “Like the rest of our products, our garages and carports are something you just can’t get anywhere else…they integrate with and complement our iconic designs. For example, the W Series garage offers an option for beautiful twin aluminum-and-glass panel doors that totally open up, effectively creating a “Breeze garage” space for easy access to both sides of a property (…or perfect for a fun party!).”

In keeping with Blu’s commitment to economical, healthy building, Blu’s garage and carports use the highest quality and most sustainable materials like eco-friendly batt insulation, come standard with electric car plug-ins, are solar-ready, and feature recycling and compost storage integration options, plus options for bike (and other) storage. The carports have a beautiful, exposed steel frame, corrugated roofing, cedar storage options, and more. All the garages and carports are built in Blu’s state-of-the-art, climate controlled factory and assembled by Blu’s own team on site in just one day.

Blu Homes carports start at $22,500, and garages start at $35,500. For more information, visit: http://www.bluhomes.com/homes/garage/
