Living Homes + Zero-Energy



LivingHomes C6 house and the promise of affordable prefab

The concept is simple: Make a modern, prefabricated home with the lowest environmental impact -- and price -- possible. It's called the C6.
Starting at $179,000, the C6 prefab from Santa Monica-based LivingHomes is half the price of the company's other models. The C6 is touted as the first production home designed to achieve LEED platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, and it's the first to incorporate a range of products certified by Cradle to Cradle, the environmental rating program founded by sustainability gurus William McDonough and Michael Braungart. > L.A. times
The home was designed through a new partnership with Make It Right, a nonprofit founded by Brad Pitt and architect William McDonough, seeking to build 150 LEED Platinum homes in New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward, the neighborhood hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina. As such, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each C6 will help support the efforts of Make It Right.
