East Meets West in Modular Home by EcoCraft

Inspired by west coast modern architecture and cutting edge building technologies, the EcoMod by EcoCraft Homes harmonizes energy efficiency and modern urban design. This compact three-bedroom home maximizes performance and beauty with an open floor plan that floods the home with natural daylight. Its 2200-square-foot floor plan is easily adaptable to urban lot densities and specific site conditions found within the city of Pittsburgh.

Strategically designed to minimize heat loss and maximize solar gains, the EcoMod house offers homeowners up to 80% savings on monthly utilities, exceptional indoor air quality, and extraordinary comfort without the need for large mechanical systems.

The new EcoMod house builds upon EcoCraft’s experience with prefab modular home building technology, reducing conventional construction time and increasing performance. The home construction processes that are achievable in a factory environment allow for improved the air tightness and thermal characteristics of the building envelope, thereby, reducing energy consumption.

Standard Efficiency Features include:
  • ERV fresh air ventilation with energy recovery
  • Energy-smart precast wall system
  • Super-efficient mechanical system
  • Tankless hot water
  • High-efficiency custom thermal envelope
  • A Passive House package is available

The EcoMod consists of three modular units stacked upon a first-floor prefabricated wall system. 

The plan can be adapted to different widths and lengths. Design features include:
  • Open floor plan filled with natural light throughout
  • 10 ft. first floor ceiling with exposed floor joists
  • Kitchen open to main living space
  • Custom fabricated open stair
  • Vaulted third floor master bedroom suite
  • 360-square-foot rooftop deck off the master suite
  • Three bedrooms and 2.5 baths
  • Sustainable finishes throughout including FSC hardwood and cork flooring
  • Low maintenance exterior finishes including LP Smart Siding
