NorthBayBusinessJournal informs MHProNews.com new California modular kid-on-the-block Healthy Buildings Technology Group finished the first of two showcase Ohome homes in Napa, CA. The roof and wall panels of a 640 square-foot dwelling were hauled to a site in North Napa and assembled in two days. A second Ohome nearly twice as large with three bedrooms will be assembled next to the smaller one where they will share a garage. CEO Bob Massaro, a veteran of over a dozen years in green-oriented construction, but only a year into modular homes, says, “The showcase models are demonstration homes designed to introduce our technology, green features, and materials and finishes to prospective buyers.” Ohomes range from a 150 square foot ‘tiny’ home to a 1,600 square footer with four bedrooms. Healthy Buildings also offers a hexagonal 1,000 square foot interconnecting modular pod complex for classroom (Oclass) or office use (Ocenter). The smallest unit is a 100 square foot unit designed for beach or campground use. All the sizes are designed to be assembled by five workers and habitable within three weeks. The company is working on a multi-family unit, and has contracts for several single-family homes in the area.
