A 772-square-foot home might not sound impressive until you hear its list of attributes. Renewable and recycled materials, rainwater collection, two outdoor greenhouses, solar panels and a graywater reuse system are just part of the Paradigm prefab design, which made its debut on November 14, 2012, at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in San Francisco.

If you’re in need of a 700-gallon rainwater harvesting tank, ultra-low-flow toilets or porous driveway pavers, then Moscone Center is the place this week.

The occasion is Greenbuild, a conference organized by the United States Green Building Council and being held for the first time in San Francisco. With 35,000 people expected to attend and more than 1,000 companies exhibiting what they claim are eco-friendly products, the event also testifies to the ever-widening cultural presence of sustainable design.

One key goal in the new green frontier is to create net zero carbon emission developments.

Sustainability has become so ingrained in both industry and society, with green building practices finding their way into the mainstream and sustainable ideals influencing governments and other major public and private entities, that standards have gone beyond energy efficiency.
Equally important, however, is feasibility. In the green movement’s early days, industry sectors were inundated with fantastic, utopic concepts that could revolutionize society and bring sustainable living to the four corners of the globe.

These ideas, however optimistic, are often untenable, and in an industry focused on action, they no longer garner the same amount of recognition as feasible, realistic, ready-to-develop initiatives.

As the green building sector evolves, however, new green benchmarks are being set on a regular basis and the industry technology is quickly catching up the concepts, meaning that outside-the-box ideas are fast becoming a reality.

With the housing industry still struggling to recover from the recession, it may be surprising that the fastest-growing private company in Washington state this year is a home builder. Revenue for Seattle-based Method Homes LLC grew by 784.6 percent, to $4.6 million in 2011 from $520,000 in 2009, putting the company at the top of the Puget Sound Business Journal’s list of 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies.

To spur that growth, Method Homes’ co-founders, Brian Abramson and Mark Rylant, repeatedly took advantage of the opportunities they identified in their niche to create new lines of prefabricated modular homes. Lately, the company has expanded into apartments and hotels.

The benefits of prefabricated homes abound—expedited construction schedules, rainproof building conditions, and, usually, energy-efficient elements such as radiant heating and reclaimed materials. Even so, prefab isn’t typically a priority for most homebuyers. Sheri Koones, author of Prefabulous and Almost Off the Grid, her sixth book on the subject, estimates that prefab housing makes up just 3 to 5 percent of the housing market. To her, it’s a matter of education. “Anybody who researches and sees what can be done with prefab usually builds prefab,” she says. “There are a lot of misconceptions that it’s synonymous with cheap and junky, but prefab houses are indistinguishable from site-built houses.”

If your design palette is traditional, you’ll probably like the new Cottage Series by Studio 29 and Method Homes. The Cottage Series marries craftsman style with off-site fabrication in six floor plans. These have tiered pricing based on things like the materials, interior palette, and finish packages. For a general idea, pricing is between about $215,400 – $498,300 (not including separate, optional garage and ADU structures from $23,000).

Fifty years ago the Seattle World’s Fair captured the imagination with a home filled with inventions that make mundane housekeeping tasks easy (and even dispensable). The resulting home displayed at The Seattle Center was named “The House of the Immediate Future”. Now The Miller Hull Partnership and Habitat for Humanity Seattle/South King County have teamed up to bring a new residential project of the same name to the foot of the Space Needle, which welcomed the World’s Fair of 1962. This 1,400 square-foot home, built by the volunteer force of Habitat for Humanity, showcases the affordable, environmentally friendly building technology of today. It is one of seven super energy-efficient homes being feature by Northwest ENERGY STAR Homes this year.
