Acre Designs Review

Acre Designs is a prefab home builder, based out of the San Francisco Bay Area that makes ultra-modern net-zero homes. A net-zero home is a home that produces as much energy as it consumes. All new residential construction in California actually has to be net-zero by 2020 by law. Acre achieves this by using highly insulated SIPs (structural insulated panels) and having a 5-10 volt solar energy system on the roof.


Acre Homes come with a variety of modern technology. These include smart locks, appliances, and climate control systems as well as optional add-ons like a power wall and EV vehicle charging. Acre, currently has two designs (a one story and a two story home) that each come in a variety of sizes from two bedroom to five bedroom homes.


Process-size, Acre designs the home and build the components, but a local builder will build your foundation and construct the home on site.



  • Net zero - theoretically no energy bills

  • Very modern throughout

  • Nice aesthetically


Reasons they might not be for you:

  • You don’t live in California

  • You want a small home - Acre’s smallest home is 1200 sqft
