MotherNatureNews (MNN) reports that prefab home builder BluHomes has unveiled a new line of New England style modular homes that ‘fits the architectural vernacular of traditional and historic communities.’ Massachusetts-based prefab firm Blu Homes unveils Lofthouse, a New England style modular home that has already been making small waves on the green prefab scene. BluHomes startup’s focus on affordability and an innovative folding technology allows for a dramatically quicker, more efficient, and cheaper factory-to-site systems building process. Now joining BluHomes’ line up of designs dubbed Element and Evolution is the Lofthouse. BluHomes Co-founder and VP of Sales and Marketing, Maura McCarthy said: “The Lofthouse is a beautiful, precision-built green home that fits the architectural vernacular of traditional and historic communities. The MNN reported that the charming exterior of the traditional version of the Lofthouse is reminiscent of a New England barn-style home, complete with Colonial-style windows and shutters. The more modern version does away with shutters and expands the windows to provide an uninterrupted view and a true indoor/outdoor living experience.” This modular abode was inspired by “the look and feel of classic New England homes” and designed to “appeal to traditionalists and modernists alike.” So what does a “classic New England home” look like exactly? Basically, it translates to “barn-like” interior, but with a modern interior.
