• A line of prefabricated contemporary homes designed by architect Geoffrey Warner of Alchemy Architects.
• Modular sections are built in a factory and transported to a prepared site. A crane lifts and places them on the foundation. For the Linden Hills weeHouse, the main part of the home was constructed of four prefabricated modules and the basement and tuck-under garage were built on-site.
• Warner modifies each design to accommodate site constraints and zoning requirements.
• The designs have large expanses of glass to make the interior feel spacious and to provide views of the surrounding landscape.
• Construction utilizes green building materials and practices.
• A weeHouse typically takes less time to build and costs about 20 percent less than a comparable site-built house, said Warner.
• It takes about nine months from planning to a completed home. Assembling the modules on the site and the finishing work (installing wallboard and flooring, painting and connecting the plumbing and mechanical systems) takes four to eight weeks.
