Modern, Modular Prefab Home in Madison Valley

264959 4 Modern, Modular Prefab Home in Madison Valley

Today Cascade Built announced their latest prefab home project, Alley House 2, will be constructed in Madison Valley with an estimated completion date of Oct 2011. The LEED Platinum-targeted project is designed by architect, David Foster, and will be located next to another Cascade Built project named Alley House.

The Alley House 2 will be prefabricated in modular components by Seattle-based Method Homes (www.methodhomes.net) – a first for Cascade Built – and be certified LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum, the highest certification possible, making it one of the city’s few prefab LEED homes. Cascade Built chose a modular prefab build for the Alley House 2 for its shorter building timeframe of approximately two months and reduction in material waste, which is minimized to less than five percent. The prefab build also means the house will be constructed in a closed environment where exposure to elements such as rain, do not exist.

The home is available for pre-sale and was listed on Redfin a few days ago for $599K. Located at 216 26th Ave E Unit B, the home contains 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and 1,687 square feet.

Its neighbor, Alley House, was built in 2008, is LEED Platinum-certified, contains 1,830 square feet, and sold for $645K in 2009.

Full release included after the jump.
