Affordable housing across America is becoming harder and harder to find. Thankfully, companies like Node are trying to remedy that with easily assembled pre-fab homes that you can buy for under $200,000. But these homes aren’t your parents’ pre-fab homes– these are stylish, sustainable and splashed with a touch of Mid Century Modern style.
Washington based Node currently offers one house plan, called the Trillium, which can be built to be 400, 600 or 800 square feet. They plan to offer different stylish pre-fab homes in the future that will be larger and have different features.
The homes are designed so that all of its parts can be shipped to their building site in a singular shipping container. The hardware easily snaps together and most of the home can be put together by the new homeowners themselves. Doing this means the homes can be offered for the great value they’re at.
One of the best parts about Node is that its stylish pre-fab homes are built to leave no carbon footprint- meaning these homes can produce as much energy as they use. This is done through solar panels and rainwater conservation systems. Node hopes that this feature, along with their affordability, means that homes like these will be the homes of the future.
The first homes will be built in Seattle later this year, and more models and locations are expected following that.
