The Alley House 2 Prefab Has Landed

By November 15, 2011


Two hours after leaving the scene and I still can’t feel my toes. That’ll teach me to show up at a “craning in” event not wearing socks on a cold November day. It took a full two hours but today Method Homes dropped their prefab components into place for Alley House 2, a LEED Platinum-targeted home being developed by Cascade Built.

Two prefab components were trucked in from where they were assembled in Method Homes’ warehouse and placed on the foundation that had been prepped at 216 26th Ave E in Madison Valley. The drop went something like this:

11:00AM — Arrival
Alley House 2

11:20AM — Unwrap
Alley House 2

11:45AM — Position module under crane and strap it in
Alley House 2

12:20PM — Module lifted
Alley House 2

12:40PM — Touch down
Alley House 2

12:45PM — Realize I can’t feel my toes and decide not to stick around for round two being brought in.

(btw: in that last are the John Street Loft townhouses in the background which are being developed by BuildUrban)

Originally estimated to be complete by Oct 2011, the prefab, modular home is now expected to be move-in ready as early as Jan 2012. It is still available for pre-sale at an asking price of $599K.
