The Greenfab Way
Greenfab believes that as many people as possible should be able to live in a well-designed, healthy and sustainable home. We hold strong to this belief by offering homes that balance design, function and innovation with price. Adding value to your lifestyle is The Greenfab Way. This is our commitment to you and it is at the heart of everything we do.
Selling the healthiest, best quality, most energy efficient, and most cost effective homes available
Your Health Matters
Maintaining good health is a primary element to living a better life. Greenfab uses an indoor, prefab and modular factory production process to completely eliminate the risk of mold, mildew and rust that can often lead to human respiratory problems. Greenfab homes minimize your exposure to environmental toxins by increasing air circulation and filtering harmful particulates. Many of our materials, including paints, finishes and adhesives, contain no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) and are formaldehyde-free resulting in a better quality of life.
Greenfab's standards are high. Our goal is to provide the highest quality homes to meet these high standards. We maintain our standards by meticulously evaluating the materials, construction, safety, health, energy efficiency, ecological value and appearance of all the homes we design and build.
Specifically, our prefab, modular construction process results in a higher quality home. This is achieved through assembly line construction that leads to more precise craftsmanship and quality control. Materials are not exposed to environmental conditions, as in a traditional site-built home, so they maintain their structural integrity and strength. Our prefab, modular homes are built to the same local UBC/IBC codes as site-built homes, and by code, prefab and modular homes have to be built to a higher quality level than site-built homes because they must endure the stresses of being transported and installed (wind, shear, vibration, etc.).
Greenfab homes maximize energy efficiency by increasing the insulation value (R and U-value) of your walls and windows, integrating Energy Star appliances and fixtures, and incorporating highly efficient and cost-effective mechanical systems. Solar panels (photovoltaics) can be easily added to help offset your energy consumption and save you money over time. Our homes also include an energy monitoring system to collect and measure your energy and water use so that you can conserve money and natural resources.
A Passion for Affordability
Greenfab has a responsibility to create a thriving and sustainable financial condition for investors, partners and customers. We believe that this starts with the homebuyer. Greenfab will make every attempt to offer homes at a price low enough so that as many people as possible can afford them. If customers and communities are prosperous, so is Greenfab.
Affordability is established by: pre-designing our homes so that you save money on design, using parallel development (building at the site and factory simultaneously) to reduce labor charges through construction efficiencies, shortening the term required for expensive construction loans, obtaining volume discounts on materials, qualifying you for federal and state tax credits, and earning paybacks through energy efficient and net-zero energy features.
Going above and beyond for our customers
We focus on one thing at Greenfab, and that's YOU!. We are proud of our attention to your specific needs and we work hard to provide solutions to your everyday problems. We are confident that when you work with us you will have fun, work with people that care about you, and find a home that is perfect for your lifestyle and values. If you are happy, so are we.

We promise to continue the advancement of our home designs, technology and service to ensure our customers are getting the greatest value for their money.

Greenfab is dedicated to inspiring and educating people about what it means to live a more sustainable lifestyle. We offer an online community through our blog, facebook, twitter, and pinterest pages for anyone interested in sharing or learning about anything that can make our planet and lives healthier and happier.

Protecting our environment
Greenfab is committed to offering you an environmentally responsible home. Greenfab has a responsibility to be a steward to the planet. Greenfab follows the LEED for Homes guidelines provided by the U.S. Green Building Council as well as other locally and nationally recognized green building programs. We make every attempt to exceed these standards and develop homes and sites that generate all energy from renewable sources, capture all water on site and use all resources efficiently.
For every home we design and build, Greenfab incorporates the following green building principles;
Greenfab homes are built more efficiently and responsibly than a traditional site-built home. Our prefab, modular factory construction process allows for precise cutting and use of materials, resulting in 50%-75% less waste. That means fewer materials end up in landfills. Prefab and modular buildings also lessen the carbon emissions that can result from transporting different materials to a construction site as opposed to a central manufacturing facility. Great homes begin with a smart process and Greenfab is proud to pass this along to you and our environment.
Greenfab homes incorporate recycled, re-used, and chemical-free building materials and finishes where possible to ensure greater health for you and the planet. You can be confident that your Greenfab home is as free as possible from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s), urea and formaldehyde. We make every effort to use wood that is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and source materials that are local, durable and low-maintenance.
Greenfab homes maximize energy efficiency by increasing the insulation value (R and U-value) of walls and windows, integrating Energy Star appliances and fixtures, and incorporating highly efficient and cost-effective mechanical systems. Solar panels (photovoltaics) can be easily added to provide a renewable energy source.
Water, essential to all life, is a resource that needs protecting. Every Greenfab home includes low-flow plumbing fixtures and dual-flush toilets to significantly reduce water usage. We also incorporate rainwater and greywater collection systems, as an option, to help offset landscape irrigation and toilet flushing.

In 2008, Greenfab was born from an extreme passion for saving the environment and improving the way people live their everyday lives. We started by sharing ideas and stories in a blog focused on sustainable living, the environment and innovative housing ideas. As our passion grew and we began to learn more, we started looking deeper into the one industry that has affected people and the environment more than any other throughout recent history - home building.
Through our research, we quickly became increasingly frustrated with the limited options people had for living in a well-designed, healthy, environmentally responsible and cost-effective home. That was the beginning of trying to create the change we wanted to see.
Although our Nation was in the midst of an economic collapse and the housing industry was imploding, we felt strongly that this was the ideal time to develop and grow a sustainable home building business.
In 2009, we collaborated with leaders in the green building and design industry to help us develop a housing concept for the new economy focused on reducing costs, energy consumption and environmental degradation. During this process, it quickly became clear to us that the traditional home construction industry – inefficient, costly, time consuming and wasteful - was in direct conflict with our overall vision. To strengthen our concept, we looked to a construction industry that had been around for decades and was inherently efficient, cost-effective and less damaging to the environment. Prefab and modular soon became two of our favorite words.
Once we added leaders from the prefab and modular construction industry to our group of experts, we were able to produce a concept home designed to balance function, energy efficiency, the environment and cost.
In 2010, construction started on our first model home in Seattle, Washington based on this concept. It was the first time that the community and the general public were able to see our passion come to life and it was the first modular home in the State of Washington to receive a LEED Platinum Certification.
Greenfab is now building homes and communities throughout the country. Although our headquarters are in Seattle, Washington, our passion is in your home.
Greenfab offers significant benefits to developers and investors looking to offer healthy, green and beautiful homes on multiple lot properties. Our prefab and modular, green homes offer a competitive advantage in the marketplace with expert workmanship, high performance, and increased marketability. Greenfab collaborates with development partners on design, engineering, and marketing.
