Pre-fab Blu Homes coming to Colorado sustainable neighborhoods (photos)
High-performance, precision-engineered homes are coming to two Colorado developments as Blu Homes work with builders to create sustainable communities.
As part of its expanding developer initiative, Blu Homes, Inc., a builder of beautiful, precision-engineered, green homes, will work with McStain Neighborhoods, a Colorado-based green builder of sustainable communities, to build a Discovery Home at Indian Peaks South in Lafayette, Colo. Blu Homes and McStain will also collaborate at the Triple Crown Meadows community in Niwot, Colo., later this year.
To kick off the project, Blu and McStain will build a new Discovery home in the Indian Peaks South neighborhood.
The 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath, 1,966 square foot Lofthouse with a 900+ square foot finished lower level is scheduled to open for public tours starting in the spring of 2014, and will serve as the introduction of Blu's eco-friendly and energy-efficient home designs in the Boulder County community.
The award-winning Indian Peaks South neighborhood incorporates more than 300 home sites intertwined with miles of walking trails, pathways, pocket parks, community gathering areas and other outdoor features. The Indian Peaks South neighborhood is located in the centralized, southern corridor of Boulder County, which offers a close commute into the City of Boulder, Denver Metro area and Colorado Front Range.
The Discovery Home, which is inspired by Blu's Lofthouse, has the look and feel of a renovated farmhouse. It features a dramatic two-story living room with an overlooking loft space as well as two, three and four-bedroom floorplan options. The home has open or separate dining areas, and a multitude of interior and exterior finish options selected by the homeowner. This home will also feature a solar system as well as high ceilings to create a sun-drenched indoor environment that connects seamlessly with the outdoors.
The Triple Crown Meadows community features nine available lots in Niwot, with easy access to Boulder and Longmont, Colorado. McStain will offer ranch and two-story homes from their Classic Collection series home options and Blu Homes will offer a rustic version of its Breezehouse.
The exterior of the Breezehouse will feature a country rustic look, matching the style of the neighborhood. The interior will feature vaulted ceilings, three bedrooms and plenty of windows to invite the outdoors in.
Like all Blu Homes, the Discovery Home at Indian Peaks South and the Breezehouse at Triple Crown Meadows will be LEED-Silver certifiable, feature Energy Star appliances and offer incredible strength, quality and durability for high performance in extreme weather conditions, including high snow loads.
