The Year in Prefab [Dwell Magazine]

You’re probably interested in modern prefab if you’re reading this site.  So make sure to grab a copy of the December/January 2013 publication of Dwell.  Entitled “Prefab Comes Home,” the magazine includes about 60 pages of prefab coverage for the enthusiast. The cover features a “ready-made home” designed by Jens Risom in the late 1960s on Block Island, Rhode Island.  I enjoyed seeing the finished prototype by Simpatico Homes.

Home Depot Creates Products List for LEED

We’re in a $17 billion market for new green homes, so it makes sense that the USGBC and Home Depot would team up to make green building products more accessible. Today, the USGBC and Home Depot announced a new database – available through – currently listing more than 2,500 products that contribute towards LEED for Homes certification.

All of the products on the database are sold by Home Depot and include insulation, windows, fixtures, appliances, sealants, countertops, doors, flooring, etc. The database will certainly make it easier for purchasers to find better green home products in all categories.

Yet one small thing to keep in mind is the fact that LEED for Homes requires a lot more than simply racking up green products that might contribute toward 45 (Certified), 60 (Silver), 75 (Gold), or 90 (Platinum) points. LEED has various prerequisites and products alone, without good design and proper construction, hardly make a green home.

Lindsay Chason, senior manager of Environmental Innovation at The Home Depot, said: “we want to show our customers that building green can be easy and affordable … we have innovative, environmentally-friendly products that make LEED certification simpler,” according to a statement.
