Mandala Custom Homes prefab performance home

We want to ensure our health, happiness, and, now, productivity in our homes. A Mandala Custom Homes prefab performance home checks all the boxes!

More than ever, as we turn inwards to home for everything from work and school, to exercise and retreat, a healthy, holistic indoor environment has never been more vital.

As homebuilders, particularly after more than a year of a global pandemic, we are acutely aware of how important it is to be able to provide the safest, most secure, and healthiest indoor spaces possible. But, then again, pandemic or not, for Mandala Custom Homes (MCH) safety, health, and environmental consciousness has been core to our building philosophy since we began over 20 years ago.

It’s what defines each and every distinctive and innovative MCH custom prefab performance home.

To ensure that we continue to stay ahead of the curve in prefab performance home building, we are constantly in pursuit of information and knowledge so that we can assure every client that their home will meet the very highest standards when it comes to innovation in construction and design.

MCH building technology for the prefab performance home

For MCH, it’s always come down to health, ease, and environmental sustainability. We strive for innovation in every step of the home building process. When you work with MCH to build a unique and beautiful, custom round prefab performance home, we incorporate the best in green technology and that includes our Off-site Manufacture (OSM) home design system.

Our innovative approach provides exquisite craftsmanship to create harmonious spaces that nurture and inspire; maximum benefit with minimal environmental impact.

Each MCH prefab performance home is easily identified: genius round construction with faceted walls, an abundance of natural light, built with cutting-edge, sustainable OSM technologies.

Wall panels and the floor and roof components are all pre-built at our factory. Once complete, they are shipped to the homeowner’s building site and constructed. OSM provides a number of benefits that include:

  • Reduced construction time
  • Simplified construction processes
  • Higher quality, better control, and more consistency
  • A higher degree of precision and quality control during the construction phase compared to stick-built on-site.
  • A controlled production environment eliminates dependence on weather conditions
  • Reduced waste on and off-site
  • Incorporates sustainable solutions
  • Achieves better energy performance

Environmental consciousness and sustainability

It’s not a performance prefab home without environmental sensitivity. MCH looks to alternative energy or renewable energy, and green technologies – a safe, healthy and sustainable means of harvesting energy – to avoid the irreparable, and ultimately more costly, effects of burning fossil fuels.

Our unique building processes along with superior insulation, a sealed building envelope, and a quality HRV system contribute to a performance, or net-zero, home.

Technologies we utilize:

  • Micro Hydro: flowing water is converted to energy to produce hydropower. Micro- Hydro can be effectively derived from a small seasonal creek whose flow is strong and consistent enough to convert into power.
  • Wind Power: turbines convert wind into energy with their propeller-like blades. For instance, a rooftop-mountable Swift turbine, designed for urban and suburban homes, begins to generate power in winds of only 8-mph. It can produce 1,900 kWh per year at a 13.4-mph average wind speed and is never louder than 35 decibels.
  • Solar Power: the use of photovoltaic (PV) cells to generate electricity from sunlight. Installed on rooftops, PV modules draw on the sun, the most readily available form of energy. More and more, as it becomes a more cost-effective option, solar power is an economical choice for homeowners.
  • Net-zero systems: in addition to those sources listed above, MCH incorporates various other energy-efficient technologies into our homes: High-efficiency Energy Star appliances, high-efficiency CFL, LED and OLED lighting, exceptional thermal insulation in walls, roof, floors and basement, multiple passive heating and cooling principles, energy-optimized windows and doors, and an airtight building envelope with heat recovery ventilation.

The positive, holistic energy in a performance home

To build a performance prefab home is to create a dwelling that conserves more energy than is used. That is the net-zero, performance principle and it literally creates a  positive energy house. This zero-energy fundamental, available in every MCH round home, integrates the holistic and sacred into everyday living.

Our homebuilding methodology promotes harmonious living indoors and out, incorporating nature and natural elements, in conjunction with round spaces. A holistic lifestyle –  a vital connection to the natural world, understood innately throughout human evolution.

We build inspired spaces – abundant light, panoramic views, and incredible acoustics – to promote health, wellness, peace, and harmony.
