Green Builder Media Celebrates Earth Day With Launch of Flex House
Date:4/21/2017

The adage “Show, don’t tell” applies perfectly to Green Builder Media’s Earth Day launch of the Flex House, the next project in the company’s esteemed VISION House demonstration project series. Manifesting the concept of right-sized living, the Flex House is designed to help homeowners use exactly the amount of resources they need to live affordably and abundantly without unduly taxing the resources of our beautiful planet.

Green Builder Media (http://www.greenbuildermedia.com) has joined forces with specialty modular builder Shelter Dynamics (http://www.shelterdynamics.com) to develop the Flex House (http://www.greenbuildermedia.com/vision-house-flex-house), which boasts a small-footprint, adaptable space that is completely connected, intelligent, resilient, solar, and sustainable.

“To us, right-sized living doesn’t just refer to square footage,” says Green Builder Media CEO Sara Gutterman. “It also means having the flexibility to adapt your home to your evolving lifestyle and consuming only the natural resources that you need—no more, no less.”

Creatively conceived, the Flex House allows home buyers to design a home that matches their specific living needs by selecting from a menu of prefabricated modules. The base unit is 760 square feet with a master bedroom, smaller room that can service as both an office and second bedroom, bathroom, two living areas, full kitchen, and flexible “niche” space.

Additional modules can enlarge the floor plan. Work from home? Get the enhanced office module. Expecting kids? No problem—add more bedroom modules. Want an outdoor patio with a living wall and garden beds? The Flex House has you covered!

The Flex House’s design aesthetic is equally as adaptable as its floor plan—a homeowner can order the home in many different styles, ranging from contemporary to craftsman.

Boasting a fully integrated smart + solar system, the Flex House is fully powered by a cutting-edge solar system with battery storage. The home can produce all of its own power and serve as a microgrid, and can therefore be grid-tied or independent.

The advanced smart home hub platform streamlines the production, storage, monitoring, and usage of energy to create the ultimate demand-side energy management strategy. It also connects voice-enabled controls with lighting, mechanical, entertainment, water, indoor air quality, irrigation, and other systems.

The Flex House also highlights the concept of Intelligent Water. Designed to be ultra-water efficient, the home features water conserving products and fixtures, as well as leak detection, water filtration, grey water, and smart irrigation systems.

Featuring high performance windows, spray-foam insulation, tankless water heater, mini-split HVAC system, smart lighting, advanced appliances, and indoor air quality systems, the Flex House is resource efficient, durable, and healthy.

Flex House sponsors include:

  • Bosch Thermotechnology—smart and efficient solutions for heating and cooling, including a mini-split HVAC system and tankless water heater
  • Bosch Appliances—innovative, connected, and size-appropriate appliances for a beautiful and high-performance kitchen that even the most experienced chef will envy!
  • Jinko Solar—the world’s largest provider of solar photovoltaic panels, Jinko Solar offers cutting edge PV technology to optimize the harvesting of solar power
  • American Standard—offering high performance and low flow faucets and toilets, as well as sinks, tubs, and accessories, American Standard (part of LIXIL) products help create healthy, safe, and stylish kitchens and bathrooms
  • DuPont—the Tyvek protective membrane (housewrap) ensures a durable and breathable building envelope to maximize energy efficiency and moisture control
  • Accella Corp.—a leading supplier of advanced polymers, Accella offers high-performance spray foam insulation that contributes to a net-zero energy building envelope
  • Ledvance—maker of SYLVANIA advanced LED lamps, standardized luminaires, and smart lighting solutions, as well as traditional light sources, Ledvance offers an innovative spectrum of illumination solutions

The performance of the Flex House is matched by its high design: the hand-crafted home incorporates beautiful, organic, and non-toxic fixtures and finishes. The curving rooflines, vaulted interior spaces, and abundant daylighting create an open and spacious feel despite that belies its small footprint.

Augmenting its adaptability and sustainability, the Flex House is affordable—the base model ranges in cost from $85,000 to $100,000.

The Flex House will be showcased at three upcoming conferences: PCBC (June 2107 in San Diego), Solar Power International (September 2017 in Las Vegas), and CES (January 2018 in Las Vegas).
