ORCA PODs are framed with our light gauge steel (LGS). Galvanized steel structures have a life span of 300 years and are built to resist earthquakes, high winds, and extreme temperatures. Other benefits of LGS framed homes include:
• Resource sustainability—ORCA frames are made with 100% recycled steel.
• LGS is resistant to rot, mold, and insect damage. Our steel is galvanized (G90) so it will not rust.
• Light gauge steel homes are lightweight so do not require the same foundation or number of pilings as a traditional build. This saves homeowners money on their site prep.
Our PODs are insulated with a rigid foam board insulation. This warm frame construction has no thermal break (as experienced in traditional stick builds), resulting in a high-performance home with reduced heating and cooling costs. The board insulation gives an R26 value for walls and R36 value for the roof.
The siding and roof are finished off with an upkeep-free, standing seam metal cladding. Optionally, cedar or hemlock tongue and groove cladding can be added as a finishing detail. The wood is treated with a low-maintenance stain that compliments the standing metal.
The PODs are finished with high quality black casement windows. Benefits of casement windows (compared with sliding windows):
• better views
• greater ventilation
• superior security
• higher energy efficiency
Our PODs include a large number of windows and sliding doors to allow plenty of natural light into the interior of your home. Most of our models (Quail, Wren, Swallow, Swift and Osprey) include a 16’ oversized sliding door which opens to allow for seamless indoor/outdoor living.
ORCA PODs include either a 9.5″ wide plank engineered hardwood in a white oak finish or a vinyl wood plank tile which is incorporated throughout the bedrooms, kitchen, and living spaces. The use of the same material throughout the living spaces makes the home feel larger and provides a clean aesthetic.
The bathrooms are finished with large 24″ by 48″ porcelain tile both on the floors and shower walls. Inspired by Sicilian stone, this tile is a tribute to the natural richness of limestone.
PODs with a mudroom option incorporate vinyl click tile for durability. Homeowners have a choice to keep with the natural decor of the home or incorporate a unique vinyl design into this space.
ORCA PODs are equipped with smart technology from lighting to the whole ECHO Home Hub. Smart lighting, heating, home security, and surveillance (all of which can be controlled remotely) are available.
Technologies included or offered with the ORCA PODs:
ECHO Home Hub
Lutron Lighting System
Ring Video Doorbell
August Wireless Home Lock
