Ultra Efficient Solargon 30

I’ve covered the Solargon a couple of times before as I think it is a very efficient home and has a very unique design. This home featured here is a 30 foot version and though not a tiny home it fits well into the small home size.

Doug Kirk from Solargon Homes contacted me to let me know that they are having a special Stimulus Sale with big savings on their 20′ and 30′ models. He wanted me to share with you this information. To get all the information visit their site.


Doug also mentioned that they are happy to say that Bob Sutherland of Sutherland Lumber is the proud owner of a 30’ Solargon with 10’ walls just west of Loveland, Colorado. There are over 60 Sutherland Lumber stores; so Bob could have built any number of buildings for his private mountain family retreat home. So when he decided to assemble a Solargon we asked him why.

His response was “” I liked the design, the pre-engineering and the fact that it goes up in just three days. I didn’t want to bother with an architect and like the passive solar design and high R-Value of the polyurethane SIP’s panels. We are delighted with the the buildings performance.”

This is the Sutherland home pictured in this post. To learn more about Solargon and see more pictures of their homes visit their blog.

    • true, but R-42 SIPs walls/roof + R-28 SIPs floor with very little thermal bridging = huge long term energy savings for the life of the building. Studies show time and time again that the greatest return on investment for energy savings comes from creating a super-insulated building envelope.

  1. I like the approach of this company–to rethink the most efficient design in the world by using one of the strongest building materials in SIP walls to insulate it. The price is in the neighborhood of where it should be considering the pre-fab characteristics of this model.

    To build it cheaper, buy SIP walls from a local supplier instead.

    If you want Yurts modeled after the real thing–the Mongolian Ger–try companies like Pacific Yurts or Colorado Yurts.
