Green Homes Builder Blu Launches Additions

May 27, 2010

May 27, 2010 - Green homes builder Blu Homes, Inc. today announced it launched its additions products, part of the Blu | Origin line of beautiful, eco-friendly green prefab buildings. The Galloni family of Massachusetts purchased a beautiful Origin addition with 11' high ceilings, and is excited for summer in their lovely and newly expanded vacation cottage in coastal New Hampshire.

"We love our Origin addition," said homeowner Ray Galloni. "We were drawn to Blu's green features, its unique folding technology and its energy efficiency. Remarkably, the contemporary Origin addition beautifully complements our antique bungalow and completes our vacation retreat."

The eco-friendly Origin additions have flexible floor plans and can be used as a master bedroom with attached master bathroom, an in-law apartment or guest house, a media room, an art or yoga studio or a home office. Because of Blu's unique folding technology, it is affordable to ship anywhere in the country. Blu is building a number of other additions this year, including four in Massachusetts and one in North Carolina.

Like all of Blu's eco-friendly green homes, the Origin additions are designed with value in mind and maximize living space. Origins' green design nicely integrates indoor/outdoor living through abundant windows, ample decks and large French doors, and are flexible for varying climates and soil types. Also, Origin additions have flexible 'looks' to fit in multiple neighborhoods-with both traditional and modern siding options.
