Blu Homes makes modern, green, prefab houses right here in the East Bay, but not for long. This is your last chance to see assembly-line home building before they move out of state!
During World War II the historic building that houses Blu Homes was used to manufacture submarines. Much of Mare Island was abandoned and in disrepair – including the old factory – until Blu Homes rehabilitated it to turn into their home-producing factory. The space contains several unique features which are still used today, such as cranes from 1939.
After the tour of the working factory we’ll move on to the Model Village to explore the end products.
