The owners of this home first fell in love with the design of Blu Homes’ Glidehouse® after seeing it featured in Sunset magazine. With its 60-foot ‘wall-of-glass,’ 14-foot ceilings, and abundant clerestory windows, they knew this was a house that would allow them to take full advantage of their spectacular views of Mt. Rainier They love the way the home lets in light and cool breezes, saving on energy costs as well as creating an uplifting living environment. And because their home was precision-built in Blu’s factory—and arrived 95% complete—it was a much easier way to get their dream home quickly built on Vashon Island.

For one weekend only they are graciously opening their home to their Puget Sound neighbors so you too can see how Blu Homes creates light-filled living spaces that integrate all the natural beauty this area has to offer.

Its ability to capture the beauty of the Northwest is just the beginning of what this Blu home has to offer. Blu Homes makes it easier to build a new home through its revolutionary approach to home design and building—making it possible for you to be in a beautiful, modern home in as little as six months, all at a fixed and transparent cost.

Blu’s cutting-edge home design—by award-winning architects—bloomed at the Rhode Island School of Design. Our patented steel framing was inspired by aerospace technologies at MIT. Steel framing allows for fewer load bearing walls which means homes with higher ceilings, more open spaces and expansive windows to integrate your home with the natural beauty of Puget Sound. And at first glance you may not notice the benefits of efficient lighting, Energy Star appliances, radiant floor heat, low-flow fixtures, insulated roofing, a tight building envelope and two insulation systems, but when your utility bills arrive you will appreciate that they are all included in the price of your home.

Personalize your home with countless quality and eco-friendly touches. Blu Homes’ standard finishes are other companies’ premiums—from luxurious windows and doors to fixtures and floors.

Your Blu Homes team is with you through the entire process—from determining what house model works best on your land to handing you the keys. Our team works with you to budget your project and provide a fixed bid —so that you know all you are getting from the start. Our goal is to make your home building experience the best possible.

One weekend only—don’t miss your chance to experience a Blu home!
