In California lives a boutique modular factory quietly building some very nice LEED homes.  Kathleen Liston, the president of ECO-Offsite, just unveiled her latest creation, a unique home in Menlo Park, CA.

As most of you know, I do not have a warm place in my heart for most west coast modular designers (think Michelle Kaufmann, etc), so imagine my surprise when I saw ECO-Offisite's home that would fit into any neighborhood in the US.

Enjoy the pictures and visit her webiste.

I went to their website. I can't believe that there are still factories building homes on stacks of wood instead of on an assembly line. This is like having your new home built in a shed in your neighbor's back yard. This has to take longer than site built and cost more.

Looks like their "factory" is one of crude manufacturing - all built in a single workstation, ala stick building inside the factory. Does not say much about their technology if this is how it is done. ANd if they had a "real" factory it would seem they would have more information about the plant on their web site.
Coach, I am not sure if "botique" is your word or one from Eco-OffSite.
