LivingHomes, developers of sustainable, high-quality, factory-built homes, is launching a new low-cost model – with part of the proceeds benefiting Brad Pitt’s Make It Right foundation.

Called the C6 (a no-frills name if we ever saw one), the $179,000 prefab features three bedrooms and two baths covering 1,232 square feet. There’s also a pleasing courtyard that seamlessly blends the outdoor and indoor portions of the home.

According to CEO Steve Glenn, the C6 is the “first production home to feature Cradle to Cradle® inspired materials and a LEED Platinum level environmental program.” Other features, such as low-flow faucets, cork flooring, real-time energy feedback, and efficient electrical and cooling systems are all standard.

According to the release, the C6 can be fully constructed in less than two months and installed on-site in one day.

“We’re excited to partner with LivingHomes to help make well-designed, sustainable houses more affordable and available in other parts of the country,” said Tom Darden, Make It Right’s Executive Director.
