The GO Home marries the convenience of a prefab home with a multitude of eco-friendly features to create a viable new property option for buyers in the New England area of the US. The project isn’t limited to just one style of building – there are ten different design options available to buy, ranging from a single-bedroom cottage to a spacious four-bedroom family home. Each one has been designed with an open-plan layout, combining practicality with comfort and style – and all at an admirably low operating cost.
Each GO Home has a highly insulated, air-sealed shell, which means the house uses 90% less energy that a traditional home. Sites with exposure to the south can also add photovoltaic panels to the structure, for the potential of a genuine zero-energy home.
The prefab nature of the homes means they can be up and running in no time, after they’ve been built to precision in Maine. Prices range from $179,000 to $567,000, with no additional costs or fees included – the entire package includes everything from the planning and preparation of the site to utility connections and interior finishes. There are also a plethora of options available to personalise each building, with dozens of exterior finishes, window and door variations, different walls and flooring, and a vast array of kitchen and bathroom options. The GO Home proves that prefab homes don’t have to be bland and identikit, nor do they cost the earth.
