HybridCore Homes Begins 167 Home Development in CA

After a decade and a half of delays procedural and economic, a 167-townhome development in west Santa Rosa, CA is set to come out of the ground in coming months, in quite a different market than when initially conceived and with cutting-edge modular room construction.

Groundbreaking for three model dwellings in the Paseo Vista Homes project is set for May 15. Santa Rosa-based HybridCore Homes expects to complete them by Aug. 1.

Started by a homebuilder and an architect in 2009, HybridCore Homes has designed room units, called “cores,” outfitted with appliances, cabinetry, electrical wiring and plumbing that can be trucked from the factory to the job site. These are the modular part of the home and contain all the "wet" areas.





One or more cores are moved into place on the foundation, and the rest of the structure is completed around them.

The remainder of the units would start to come out of the ground in early July. The entire project is expected to be completed in about two years.

The 12-acre project includes 122 single-family homes and 45 low-income rental units, built as 15 triplexes. Prices for the homes are anticipated to be in the low-$300,000 range.

This has possibilities for my company. Too bad they are in CA.

I must be missing something! Building the CORE and shifting the labor and material installation for the balance of the home to the home builder is something new and novel. HMMM! Oh! I get it a savings on transport as the factory is sending single units (Bob I'm sure your factory would love to send you single units by the dozens) and the local builder adds his margin on lower cost expanded bedrooms and living rooms.

Great marketing niche for this market combining the attributes of modular with the client hands on for the site built portion.
