LivingHomes 1st Affordable Green Home

LivingHomes has created a revolutionary new prefabricated home in their C6 model, that combines clean modern design with a LEED Platinum level environmental program and Cradle-to CradleCM inspired materials.  This affordable home was designed by LivingHomes staff in collaboration with Make It Right, a nonprofit founded by Brad Pitt and architect William McDonough to build 150 affordable, sustainable homes in New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each C6 will help support the efforts of Make It Right.



The 1,232 square foot 3 bedroom, 2 bath dwelling will market for a low as $179,000, including permit-ready drawings and excluding things like permits, transport, installation, landscape, and foundation.  This Zero Energy, Zero Carbon home is sure to make a return in less than 8 years.  C6 is outfitted with all top of the line energy efficient materials, like siding from James Hardie, Thermatru doors, Andersen windows, Verve lighting, GE kitchen and laundry appliances, and much more.
