I’m a kid in a candy store when I get the chance to explore a model home. On Saturday, Blu Homes, the widely popular manufacturer of modern prefabricated homes, was offering a peek into two models they built for a client in Sonoma, and I had the chance to visit and photograph them.
Blu Homes began as in innovative approach to modern design with the idea to build homes in half the time of traditional method. All Blu homes are smart featuring advanced technology, they’re energy efficient, and built with eco friendly materials.
The models have been installed in over 30 states, but demand is so high right now that Blu Homes is limiting their production to California only for the next 18 months.
I visited two homes on a shared lot, I learned this pair of homes belongs to a client who allowed the tour for a day. I imagine this is a second home since the closets were empty or perhaps the owners haven’t quite moved in yet. The decor was simple throughout.
I’m always interested in materials, thankfully Blu Homes provided them! The gorgeous flooring throughout is Plyboo prefinished bamboo in Havana.
There were two full bathrooms in the large Balance model, and one in the smaller Element model, all three showers had brick pattern Emser Lucente glass tile, this first bathroom has the Crystalline in the shower installed in a simple brick pattern, the vanity is Heartwood maple and the floor tile is Emser porcelain tile in Pietre Del Norde Vermont.
This bathroom also had the same gloss cabinet and Caesarstone countertop, the glass tile in the shower again Emser in a bold Empire Gold.
