Located about 20 minutes outside of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath contemporary home is a green take on prefab construction. Designed by architect Dustin Ehrlich, the custom house mixes stone, wood, stainless steel, and rusted corrugated metal meant to echo the region’s wood and metal clad stone tobacco buildings.

Set on a 10-acre lot and covering 3,370 square feet, the home features eight modules that were constructed offsite and set into place in a week and a half. While the lower level of the garage block, the foundation, and some steel supports had to be erected on site, the use of prefab sections allowed the house to be completed in just four months. In an effort to be sustainable, the home also boasts high R-value insulation, low-emissivity glass, and a white roof with high solar reflectance.

Inside, an open floor plan takes advantage of windows that frame views of the surrounding forest. There is over 1,513 square feet of outdoor space, including a large roof deck over the garage. Other perks include a glass mosaic tile bathroom in the master, a double height living room, and a wine cellar.
