Actor and 1950s Developer Inspire Modern Modular

USAToday tells sustainable, energy-efficient home-building has increased in the wake of actor Brad Pitt’s founding of Make It Right, a response to the housing needs of victims of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. Living Homes of California has developed a modular 1,232 square foot home with three bedrooms and two baths that sells for $179,000, not including the transportation, assembly, site preparation or permits. The home is built around a courtyard to take advantage of natural light. Part of the proceeds from each modular home benefit Mr. Pitt’s non-profit. Living Homes’ CEO Steve Glenn says this C6 model is “less than half the cost of our lowest cost home,” and that his company has learned a great deal from Cavco Industries, the company that constructs the homes, and from Make it Right, about sustainability and energy efficiency. The inspiration for the C6 home comes from Joe Eichler, a developer who built modern homes in California in the 1950s and 60s.
