Dvele says it uses sustainable materials to build its residences, which come with air and water filtration systems you can monitor with an app.
Welcome to Prefab Profiles, an ongoing series of interviews with people transforming how we build houses. From prefab tiny houses and modular cabin kits to entire homes ready to ship, their projects represent some of the best ideas in the industry. Do you know a prefab brand that should be on our radar? Get in touch!
Kurt Goodjohn and his brother Kris were already successful businessmen when they decided to start fresh with their prefab homebuilding company, Dvele. Their former prefab business, Karoleena Homes, had taken off in Canada for its high-quality modular designs, and was acquired in 2016. But they didn’t take too much time to rest.
Soon after they started Dvele, which emphasizes sustainable materials and smart-home features meant to improve all-around quality of life for residents. Here, Kurt and Kris share how their homes put the health of their clients first.
What qualities make your prefab stand apart from the rest?
Our houses take care of you. All units are built with sustainable materials meant to last a century, and they contain air and water filtration systems, continuous air circulation, and soundproofing. Furthermore, these systems can all be monitored through our proprietary app, which learns your routines and intuitively makes suggestions to improve upon them. Lastly, Dvele homes are self-powered, which means that they can produce their own energy and store it for later use.
What does your base model cost and what does that pricing include?
Our based models start at $250 per square foot.
