A Dogtrot Mod, modified for the Pacific Northwest: WOLFTROT

Without further ado, I present updates on our *modified* Dogtrot Mod in the Pacific Northwest, Wolftrot, from my favorite English-engineer-moved-to-the-USA-once-lived-in-a-castle-now-wants-a-prefab couple!

For reference, you can see the original prefab modern cabin house Dogtrot Mod, here. The clients were encountering delays because of site-specific issues like grading challenges, and local material challenges.

Let's start with the local material challenge: CONCRETE.

On a sloping lot, with a desire for slab -and- a half basement, our clients have run into some concrete vendor and application issues, one of them being that a British company has purchased all the local concrete plants and, upon taking ownership, significantly increased concrete costs.

So they were looking at alternatives.

An Arizona CornerHouse

Let's check in with our client who is building a modern prefab CornerHouse from Green Cabin Kits... in the southwest.

When undertaking this project, Justin put great deal of care into finding a design that would complement the unique beauty of the area and when he first discovered the CornerHouse plan, he knew immediately it would be a perfect fit.

A Northeastern Dogtrot Mod

This modern prefab is being built "backwards"- a tiny house (the guest area) constructed first, then the main living areas added later.

"...the little unit is so beautiful with the Iron Grey rainscreen and windows that look in all 4 directions!  I can't wait to "move in" and start spending time in this healthy place.  A fridge, sink, and stove will be installed in the North room, all necessary to receive an occupancy permit."

[Note: Don't forget an ERV or HRV for fresh air exchange in tight, energy efficient homes!]

She mentioned the contractor did not have green materials experience, so this  is one more example of our prefab house kits adding green building skills and knowledge into each community, which makes me very happy.
