The Plant Prefab
Custom, world-class design.
We believe that everyone deserves to live in a well-designed, healthy home, and that you should never sacrifice form for function. Whether you bring us your own plans or choose and personalize a LivingHome, we put great design at the heart of every home we build.
Renowned architects. World-class architecture.
We partner with renowned architects to make great design more accessible. Every LivingHome features thoughtful details, functional amenities, healthy finishes, and spaces that inspire and delight.
Designed for living.
Our standard homes are designed for the way you live, and they’re customizable to your tastes. LivingHomes incorporate functional details and a wide array of carefully-selected finishes and smart home technology for you to choose from.
Site-based construction is linear, requiring completion of the foundation before you can proceed to framing. It’s also subject to delays from weather and subcontractors.
We build your home in parallel with site work, in an indoor facility, with our own, full-time staff. Plus, most Plant homes arrive 90% complete and are installed in a single day. This saves you months of time, and saves your neighbors from months of construction noise, traffic, and mess.
Because fabrication happens in a controlled environment, independent from site work, it isn’t held up by the hiccups that occur on job sites. We’re able to give you a reliable schedule that you can depend on, and a knowledgeable project manager to pre-empt any issues before they arise.
Our patented building system and parallel building process means less labor hours and less material waste. Plus, our rigorous sustainability standards ensure that Plant homes are far more energy-efficient than average homes, meaning lower utility bills for the life of the home.
Healthy, sustainable construction.
The buildings we live in affect our health, mood, and productivity, and unfortunately, the most common building materials can be very unhealthy. That’s why we carefully research every product we use, including low-VOC millwork, mold-resistant drywall, and exclusively zero-VOC paints, stains, and sealants. We also design for optimal airflow and ample natural daylight, and minimize ductwork that gathers dust and allergens.
When we build for other architects we work with them to integrate health and well-being into their designs, too. Regardless of spec, our uncompromising environmental health and sustainability standards helps us build homes that are as healthy as possible, for you, our builders, and the planet.
Buildings, as a category, are responsible for more energy use and carbon emissions than all transportation and manufacturing. We are committed to minimizing the energy, water, and materials consumed by our homes, and we developed our own strict framework for selecting the most efficient materials and systems. This translates into a smaller footprint for your home, and a smaller utility bill for you.
Our LivingHomes are designed to LEED Platinum standards for maximum energy-efficiency, incorporating ultra-efficient heating and cooling systems, Energy Star appliances, smart energy monitoring, LED lighting and more.
We are the nation’s first prefabricated homebuilder dedicated to sustainable construction, materials, processes, and operations. Every step of our fabrication process is designed to minimize waste and ecological impact. We use less resources and materials than traditional job sites, and we recycle or reuse as much waste as possible.
But we know there’s much more we could do, and we’re dedicated to continuous improvement. In 2019 we became the first prefabricated homebuilder to make a carbon pledge, committing to become fully carbon neutral in our operations by 2028.
Measuring twice is just the beginning. Before we make a single cut, we completely construct each project in our Plant Virtual Build System, allowing us to engineer every aspect of the design. This ensures that the fabrication phase is more efficient and precise, saving time, materials, and money.
Plant’s construction process creates higher quality homes. Our full-time staff of skilled tradespeople, our controlled building environment, and our rigorous quality control procedures ensure superior craftsmanship.
We provide a level of scrutiny and quality assurance more common to manufacturing than construction—processes that are difficult (if not impossible) to replicate on a traditional job site.
Because modular buildings are transported, California requires that they are constructed to a more stringent building code than required by most local municipalities. We build all walls, floors, and ceilings on jigs, which ensures that they are level, straight, flush, and square. This process, which cannot be done on a traditional construction site, is a critical part of what makes Plant-built homes extremely strong and durable.

When I'm working on a problem, I never think about beauty. But when I'm finished, if the solution is not beautiful I know it's wrong.”
