Prefab Home in Greenwood is a project completed by Greenfab in 2015.
Prefab Home in Greenwood by Greenfab:
“From Seattle based prefab builder Greenfab, comes another modern, healthy, super energy efficient, prefab home. Greenfab’s 1700 Series home is just one of ten “off-the-shelf” designs currently offered. The 4 bedroom, 2,400sf Greenfab home, with separate airbnb apartment, boasts triple-pane windows, a mini-split heat pump, hybrid heat pump water heater an Energy Recovery Ventilator, 265 gallon rainwater cistern and LED lighting.
By using an off-site prefabricated construction process, Greenfab built this home 50% faster than traditional site-built custom homes. This not only saves months of headaches and inconvenience, it also lowers financing costs on construction loans. Our Seattle 1700 Series home was built in just 5 months from start to finish.
A Greenfab prefabricated home is less costly to operate because water and energy conservation lowers utility bills, and is an excellent long term investment as it offers a greater re-sale value.
With delivery to all of the western U.S. states, Greenfab builds modern, green, prefabricated homes in half the time of traditional custom homes with a full turn-key service.
OTHER PROJECT INFORMATION
Greenfab worked with the homeowners on every aspect of the project from finding the property to build on, to design and ultimately factory/site construction and home delivery. This full turn-key service helped the clients build their own home in Seattle’s extremely competitive housing market where the demand of existing homes far exceeds the supply. The Seattle housing market is seeing existing homes sell far above the listing price and with bidding wars from multiple offers.
Instead of purchasing an 1900’s, craftsman designed home that needed renovations, the clients where able to work with Greenfab to build the modern, green home they had always dreamed of. They have now built a modern home that is in high demand now in Seattle which gives them a highly sought after commodity when it comes time to sell. Every square foot was thought about in this small footprint home to maximize storage and minimize energy consumption and other monthly costs. The home was built extremely energy efficient with the ability for solar integration so the home can eventually reach net-zero energy performance.
A basement apartment was also designed to attract the highly popular airbnb market. That space has been fully booked since the owners moved in in February of this year. The entire process was simplified in order to reduce the stress of the owner’s busy daily lives. The dense urban neighborhood also benefited from Greenfab’s prefab construction process because the construction disturbance of having workers on the site nearby making noise and taking up parking spaces was dramatically reduced as the project was finished so much quicker.
This home target’s LEED for Homes Platinum certification.”
