18 INEXPENSIVE SUSTAINABLE HOMES ALMOST ANYONE CAN AFFORD

GO HOME BY GO LOGIC

The GO Home line of prefab passive-house dwellings have a more traditional aesthetic and can be assembled onsite in less than two weeks. Their portfolio ranges from a 600-square-foot, single-bedroom cottage to a 2,300-square-foot, four-bedroom family home. Clients choose their base model and preferred exterior cladding—fibre-cement clapboard, cedar shingles, charred cedar, or corrugated steel—as well as options for windows, trim, flooring, and interior hardware.

WEEHOUSE BY ALCHEMY

The weeHouse was inspired by sustainable design principles such as building small and efficiently. Their architects can work with sustainable energy experts to customize your weeHouse with greener materials and systems using active solar, geothermal, green roofs (more on that here), and other sustainable solutions. They range in size from 450 to 2,000 square feet and include steel or wooden siding, low-e glass, stainless steel appliances, and in-floor hydronic heating. 

 

ARK SHELTER

Ark Shelter was created by architecture students from Belgium who “desire to reinvent how people live their lives.” On the inside, you’ll find a built-in platform bed adjoining a large picture window, plus a fireplace, table for two, full kitchen, and bathroom. The floor-to-ceiling windows on either side of the structure offer plenty of natural light. Also, with sides that fold open, the home becomes an extension of nature. Not only does this prefab come fully furnished (with everything from appliances to kitchen utensils), it can also be shipped and installed practically anywhere. Plus, you can make it completely sustainable with their rainwater collection system (that filters water 3 times) and solar power panels.
