With sustainability, modern design and impressive technology, Irontown Homes is changing the way people think about modular homes.
Irontown Homes teamed with REAL Audio and Control4 to construct an innovative guest home featured during PCBC 2014 in June. More than 800 people toured the 534 square foot single-module guest home that is being set in Santa Barbara, Calif.
Designed by architect Jason Kerwin of OKB Architecture and designer Mike Niemann of Pacific Building Workshop, the studio guest home is almost completely automated and built for lasting sustainability. Control4 installed home automation system easily accessible by smart phone.
PCBC attendees were able to view the advanced controls that will give the owners the opportunity to control everything from the skylights, shades, temperature, security cameras and locks through their smart phone.
The home combines the latest in technology with sustainable features such as weathered barn wood siding, a weathering steel roof, Thermally Broken Western Windows and Ductless 23 SEER heating and cooling with BIBS (Blown in Blanket System) exterior wall insulation.
This home is just scratching the surface of what modular homes can be in today’s construction industry.
Irontown Homes built the guest home almost entirely in its factory and has the capability to build homes as small as this single 534 square foot module to two-story homes with thousands of square feet in floor space.
Modular homes offer significant advantages compared to site built homes especially when considering labor shortages, demands for labor in remote locations, cost and faster builds times.
Irontown Homes finished the guest home in 12 weeks and will be transporting the home to its final location using a remote-controlled, pneumatic dolly and crawler.
With Irontown Homes leading the way in modular home technology and sustainability, its no wonder more eyes are opening to the possibility of building a modular home.
