RX Made Launches Product Line and Kickstarter Campaign

It's no secret that all of us here at LivingRoom love the peeps over at the Rebuilding Exchange! Which is why we are so excited to share the news about RX Made and tell you how you can be a part and maybe even knock a couple of items off your holiday shopping list! Founded in 2011 by Chicago Non-Profit Rebuilding Exchange, RX Made evolved out of what was originally a job training program to create skilled workers. Eventually Strand Design also got involved and well...just look at the results!

The RX Made Kickstarter ends on December 13th and they are over 60% funded!

Way to go!

C3 Prefab Partnership with Square Root Architecture

LivingRoom Realty, together with architect Jeff Sommers of Square Root Architecture, are thrilled to announce our partnership to market and build C3 Prefab, the first green prefab housing available in Chicago!  

After years of hard work and dedication, we have created a wonderful team to help make the vision of sustainable, semi-customizable, affordable prefab homes a reality to the city of Chicago.

Building an affordable LEED certified home in Chicago is now a possibility. Each step of the way our team will walk you through the process; from land acquisition, to financing, to building your dream home.

C3 Prefab homes and multi-family dwellings are semi-customizable at a current range of $150-$250 per square foot depending on desired level of finishes, along with your energy efficiency and sustainability goals. Our goal is to provide options that fit both your lifestyle and budget.

To find out more about C3 Prefab visit us on the web and take the tour, or contact the C3 Client Coordinator, Elizabeth Dudek, or Annie Coleman
