Thanks for starting this thread. Going to be interesting to see the finished project. How many square feet is the home going to be?

Very interesting thread.. my local board is offering a "Green" designation class and I've been debating on whether or not to take it..

Loving this thread.
Ok so it's 'just' a rectangular house, but you've got to love the "ta-daaaa! It's a house!" approach!
Imagine living next door to that site.. you go to work one morning and it's a hole in the ground. You get back home that evening.. "wtf!! that wasn't there this morning!"
On a more serious note.. do the props come out to leave a clear basement space once the units are fixed together? or does some permanent support have to go in?

Those columns are permanent. I've never had to space them so close together before, but that's the plans the engineers provided me so that's what we did
It's cool though, it shows a "green" home can be affordable. The time frame is hard to beat.

Looks pretty cool. Having done some construction as a summer job in high school and some house remodelling since then I'm intrigued and have some questions if you don't mind:
2) Do they do larger models prebuilt models or is this sorta the limit?
3) Where the modules butt up against each other do the walls end up twice as thick as normal or do you have to do some drywall finishing after the modules are butted together?Loves wine, women and song

Very cool project - neat to see a house just sort of appear. Reminds me of someone I worked with who made the comment "My neighbours move in a few weeks - cant wait to see what the house looks like" - lol Gotta love Modular homes!
