A new Blu Homes prefab will open for tours this weekend, September 15-16, 2012, in Joshua Tree, California. The home was built for Tim Disney with two Origin units and a separate guest unit. Each Origin unit, to give you a ballpark on the value of a home like this, starts at $135,000 in California, according to information on the Blu Homes website.
One of the things about off-site fabrication is that it enables the construction of homes in places where homes may not have been built in the past, whether for reasons of cost or otherwise. A prefab in Joshua Tree, for example, can be built almost entirely by available professionals in Vallejo for less cost.
But finding available land is still a tough nut to crack for most. Cheap land usually has challenges, and infill land is hard to find without deconstruction. A Blu Homes representative told me about 80% of their customers want a green prefab but they have no land.
