The C6 Sustainable Home Debuts at Modernism Week

February 28, 2012

LivingHomes/primer.html has launched the new C6, a sustainable prefabricated home. The C6 is affordably priced and comfortably sized for a small family or couple.

"It has always been our most important goal to develop an affordable LivingHome," said Steve Glenn, CEO of LivingHomes. "The C6 is not only our lowest cost LivingHome—it's half the cost of current models—but it's also the first to achieve our most important Z6 Environmental Goals, and we believe it's the first production home to feature Cradle to Cradle-inspired materials and a LEED Platinum-level environmental program. It's also the easiest and fastest LivingHome to build."

The C6 is available in most states for $179,000 and can be fully constructed in less than two months and installed on-site in one day. The homes were inspired by developer Joe Eichler, who was known for his houses built throughout California in the 1950s and ’60s. Like many Eichler homes, the C6 is organized around a courtyard and features an open floor plan that’s ideal for outdoor/indoor lifestyles. Measuring 1,232 sq. ft., the home includes three bedrooms and two baths.

Design features integrated into the homes include cork floors, wood ceilings, natural wood millwork and wood siding, multiple sliding glass doors, floor-to-ceiling glass, clerestory windows, light tubes, transom windows, ample kitchen storage and a full feature lighting control system accessible from an iPhone.

The C6 is an Energy Star-certified production home with a LEED Platinum-level environmental program and Cradle to Cradle-inspired products. Green elements incorporated into the homes include energy efficient lighting and appliances, smart heating/AC control system, photovoltaics for more than 100 percent of power needs, low-flow water fixtures, formaldehyde-free millwork and no-VOC paint.
