Remember a few months ago I blogged my despair when Michelle Kaufmann shut down her green prefab architecture and home building firm? I was devastated as my husband and I watched our dreams — however far off — of owning a Michelle Kaufmann home go down the drain. So I am happy to report that Blu Homes, a growing eco-housing company, has acquired the assets of mkDesigns, including the designs of the Glidehouse, mkLotus, and Sunset Breezehouse. Michelle Kaufmann will serve as a design consultant to Blu and join its advisory board.
Apparently, Blu Homes has the resources and technology to make Kaufmann’s designs available across the country, also minimizing costs. Blu says they are committed to making homes that are healthy and affordable for the average family. I’m hoping this means the pricing of the mK homes will level out a bit to bring them more within reach.
In any case, my husband’s and my dreams of owning a Michelle Kaufmann home are back on track 🙂
