method homes: haute eco modular construction

Method Homes modular construction near Seattle, Washington has both a commitment to sustainable materials as well as a customizable design. The home by Balance Associates Architects can be easily scaled from a studio to a three bedroom home with LEED standards. Energy efficiency and utilization of eco materials were highlighted by using: FSC-certified lumber, radiant heating, low-flow fixtures, excellent insulation, energy star appliances, optional solar arrays, recycled tiles, bamboo flooring/cabinets and zero-VOC finishes.

Method homes are factory constructed, cutting waste to less than 10% of materials used. Homes take approx. 3 months to build after permits are approved-costs are estimated around $150 and $250 per square foot. For more info, see their blog.
