Prefabricated homes can be smart choices when it comes to cost efficiency and time constraints.
Soleta has designed a series of manufactured homes that are on the mark for their economical and ecofriendly features.
They offer a zero energy version that comes fully equipped with hydroelectricity, solar and wind power. It is heated with thermal energy that is supplied by a system that combines geothermal and solar power. Cellulose is integrated in the building supplies to aid in retaining warmth along the base.
Other sustainable and energy saving features include using materials that decrease heat transfer and energy loss. Additionally, there are natural ventilation as well as forced ventilation systems that work together to provide an optimal indoor temperature.
There is also an integrated computer based energy management system that keeps track of how the house is running, as well as any adverse impacts on the surrounding environment. The company stated that their homes weigh up to 8 times less than an equally sized building, even those made from brick. Further, the materials that are used are 97% recyclable.
The home was initially designed as a prototype for a model of energy efficiency. The manufactured versions can be fully built in approximately 2 months and are primarily made of wood. They are also available in a range of sizes.
An openness is created with the use of large windows that lend to plenty of natural sunlight. The readily available views create a relaxed feel and offer a link to nature that some constructions can leave out of the plans.
This foundation and landscaping makes use of wood stumps.
Designed for individuals up to larger families, they propose the essentials plus practicality. Modules can be easily added on, too, if the desire for more space is ever needed. This image shows the Soleta Twice, a double unit that offers plenty of living and relaxing room.
There is also a perfect outdoor courtyard formed from the dual component’s connective area.
This series of prefabricated home designs shows that it is possible to incorporate style into economical structures without high environmental costs.
