Blu Homes shelter island

The Baker family turns to Blu Homes that built a dream home that can weather future storms

Looking to build a new home that gracefully transitions into a full-time, eco-friendly residence. So Warren and Sally Baker turned to Blu® Homes, Inc. (“Blu”), the leading builder of precision-engineered, green prefab homes.

Because the Bakers built a one-story, green home with Blu Homes. One that is strong enough to weather storms and hurricanes that are common to coastal regions. The Baker home was the Blu Homes’ first project built on Shelter Island.

Channeling the style of their original home, the Bakers’ new home featuring a combination of Blu’s Balance and Origin models. All with a Breezespace to connect the two models.

The new home incorporates many of the same elements as their previous home. That’s including natural wood and expansive glass windows. The home also includes a workshop, sculpture studio, and pool. I mean among other signature touches that reflect the Bakers’ personal interests.

However, the one-story living plan, as well as the low maintenance and upkeep requirements of a Blu home. It makes the Bakers’ new home ideal for the coming years.

Blu Homes provides homebuyers with a faster, more streamlined way to rebuild, delivered at one fixed price. Built by skilled craftspeople in its 250,000 square-foot factory in Vallejo, CA using advanced building technology, Blu homes are folded for quick and cost-effective transportation and setting on site. While experts say it could take over a decade to completely rebuild after Sandy, once delivered, Blu homes are installed on-site in as little as one day and completed in typically four to six weeks.

Finally and with over 385,000 homes damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey is about climate resilience. So Blu Homes has made a commitment to contribute to the recovery. All by offering discounts to homeowners affected by the storm.
