PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Looking for a small modern that could suit their needs and be built in an eco-friendly way, our clients chose to approach Hive Modular for the solution. Beyond the “green” aspects that are inherent in every one of Hive’s prefab homes, the clients chose to pursue additional finishes that were FSC certified, locally sourced, no-VOC, and included recycled content. The ultimate product was a smart modern home that was certified with the MN GreenStar group.
