House Tour: Chicago's C3 Modular House

Jeffrey Sommers's C3 Prefab modular house is a landmark of new urban architecture—and the first of its kind in Chicago. Although the structure was quick to construct, its genesis was less straightforward, involving (among other challenges) some accommodations to comply with city building codes and a little tweaking of the 2039-square-foot interior to better suit the homeowners' needs and fit the 25' x 125' lot. Compact, light-filled, and loaded with energy-saving features such as solar thermal panels, ductless heating and air conditioning, and water-conserving appliances, the house has a HERS rating of 46 and LEED Platinum certification.
