The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Michelle Kaufmann has sold the building rights to several of her MK Designs homes to Blu Homes.
According to the article:
They have developed a proprietary unfolding modular technology that will enable cost savings to be made on Kaufmann designs at the shipping and on-site building stages. Elements that make up the homes such as wall panels are created with hinges so they can be compacted for transportation and unfolded on site. The MK Designs homes will have slightly different floor plans, proportions and elevations from the originals, although, Kaufmann said, the design principles should remain the same.
Blu Homes plans to market the homes nationwide.
