Are prefabricated homes Toronto's future?
How Many people can say their home was built in just 2 days?
The new owners of Toronto's first luxury prefab home can!
Sold for $1.525,000 after 274 days on the market (it was listed 3 times and was originally asking almost 1.7mill), this home features an exquisite interior design with premium finishes throughout.
Designed by legendary architect Ray Kappe
, who is a leading authority in green home design, this home is sure to stir up some conversation and perhaps a few debates between those who see prefabricated homes
as a viable alternative to 'regular' brick & mortar construction and those who feel the nature of such construction has too many flaws to remain sustainable long term.
Popular throughout Europe and the US for years, this concept is slowly building a foundation
and throughout Canada. The home has over 2100 square feet of living space and an advanced geothermal heating and cooling system, packed with high-end finishes and even a 1000 square foot basement with a typical poured concrete foundation.
Have a look at the 2 day time-lapse assembly video.
