Alley House 2 Green PreFab

Recently completed by Cascade Built, the prefabricated Alley House 2 is now ready for prime time.  The 1,687 square foot 3-story single family dwelling boasts an open floor plan with 3-bedrooms and 2-baths. Alley House 2 is currently available for $599,000 and is located at 216-B 26th Avenue East in Madison Valley.

What makes Alley House 2 unique is that it is only the second private modular residence targeting LEED Platinum Certification in the Seattle area.  To achieve LEED Platinum, which is the highest classification possible, a development needs to exceed in five categories – sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, and indoor environmental quality.

Alley House 2 is targeting LEED Platinum Certification with the following features:

  • Much lower than code energy and water consumption – expected to be around 50% reduction
  • Building is wrapped with foam, additional insulation
  • High performance windows
  • Low flow fixtures
  • Comfort/Health Quality
  • Heat recovery ventilation for continuous fresh air
  • No VOC paint
  • Sustainable materials includes FSC bamboo hardwood floors and Squak Mountain stone recycled countertops (locally sourced)

Alley House 2’s design features include a modern architecture designed by David Foster with a butterfly roof, an open floor plan with 10-foot ceiling height on the main floor, large decks with territorial views and a one-car garage.

Overall, the interior layout and finish level is fairly standard with comparable townhome-styled properties you find in the area. The main level is a large open area incorporating the living, kitchen and eating space. The bathrooms are located on the ground and top floors.

    That is one neat house. It will take a unique buyer to choose a house painted that color though. Really cool pics, is it on the NWMLS right now?

    This being LEED platinum is awesome! I have designed several LEED platinum houses here in Dallas and they are amazingly energy efficient. Two of them are actually energy zero. I am always happy when I see houses that are platinum rated. And I think it looks pretty good as well.

  3. I have been interested in pre fab homes for quite some time now. I have had the good fortune of talking with Michelle Kaufman the designer of the Smart Home about the same topic. Hopefully we will get the chance to work on a project together in the near future.
