Green Home Builder Blu Releases More Versatile "Element" With Up To 3 Bedrooms And Many Stylish Extras

September 28, 2010

September 28, 2010 - Green home builder Blu Homes, Inc. today announced the newest versions of Blu │ Element. Blu │ Element offers versatile and elegant design with up to 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths, along with up to 12’ high ceilings and abundant windows and natural light. New deluxe kitchen design and more standard green options like LED lighting and radiant floor heating are among the other features rounding out this beautiful, green prefab home.

“Like all Blu homes, the new Elements are wonderful examples of eco-friendly designs that maximize living space and are ideal for clean, healthy living,” said Bill Haney, co-founder and CEO of Blu. “Customers asked us to make our designs more versatile by adding bedrooms and additional features and customization options. We responded with these beautiful new Element designs.”

Sandra Beer of East Chatham, N.Y. is delighted with her new Blu │ Element. “I love my house,” Beer said. “I chose this two bedroom Element because it’s just the right size, they paid attention to green and healthy building and it has lots of natural light everywhere. Blu Homes was great to work with, streamlining the process and the price was right. Blu Homes delivered my house a few weeks ago and now I’m looking forward to settling in shortly.”

Blu has 6 more Elements in production now. One is scheduled to be unfolded in Hampton Bays, N.Y. this week., another is scheduled to arrive in Chapel Hill, N.C. in October and one in Pittsfield, Mass. in November. Early in 2011, Blu will embark on its first international installation with an Element and another home in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands.

Blu │ Element homes are ideal for single family primary residences, vacation homes, or retirement living. With a single-story layout, the Element is uniquely suited for the twilight years, and can accommodate ADA-approved fittings and fixtures. The Element is also easily combined with other Blu models to meet customer needs. The Element is available in two sizes: 36’ x 20’-6” or 48’ x 20’-6”, with a multitude of layout configurations and options for personalization that give the Element a custom home feel without the accompanying price tag.

Process Allows Customers to Design Their Own

Blu’s design process allows for extraordinary customization – you can choose your home model, foundation, size, floor plan including the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, roofing, cladding, finishes, fixtures and accessories, and the placement of windows and doors. Our team of expert designers rigorously research and test all the fittings and fixture choices so buyers can make informed choices. Blu’s customization process is all powered by our unique information technology.

Homes Are Built to Last a Lifetime

Our state-of-the-art steel hybrid framing provides unparalleled durability and flexibility. The steel frame combined with 50-year standing seam metal roofing, airtight insulation and efficient windows are all engineered to stand up to extreme weather conditions and together make Blu homes remarkably energy efficient.

Bigger Spans, Higher Ceilings and Natural Light Make Less = More

Blu is the only prefab home builder that offers spans that are 17’ to 20’6” wide with 12’ high ceilings, making your living areas feel more open, sunny and spacious than traditionally more narrow modular spaces. Our proprietary folding technology allows us to deliver these big wide open areas without charging a premium. In fact, our shipping costs are usually less than half those of typical off-site building companies.

Team and Process Offer Custom Home Beauty with Predictable Price Tag

Blu is made up of a team of architects, designers, engineers, and construction and business professionals working to build the highest quality beautiful, green homes. We design and engineer our homes ourselves, then build in our own factory and ship the home to you. Blu employees then come to your site to finish your home on your foundation, offering unmatched service to ensure your satisfaction. With this full range of control, Blu can offer a guaranteed price as well as free architectural consultation on customizing your Blu home.
