The LV series is a modern line of homes designed and manufactured by Rocio Romero. The LV series has been thoughtfully designed to enhance a modern lifestyle that is
connected to nature. They provide you with factory built kit components for the exterior shell which is built on site by a general contractor.
The LV is an 1150 sq. ft home that is 25'-1" x 49'-1" and has a living room, dining room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and closets. The LV home starts at $33,900.
The LVL is an 1453 sq. ft home that is 25'-1" x 59'-6" and has a living room, dining room, kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and closets. The LVL home starts at $41,050.
The standard LV series home plan comes with the interior layout. However, the interior layout is flexible so you can reconfigure the interior. You do need to keep the one 12 foot structural wall. That which is shaded in black in the plan represents walls and steel posts that must remain for structural reasons. The other walls are not structural and can be reconfigured accordingly.
The standard LV series home plan comes with the post and window. However, They have designed the LV series to allow you flexibility with respect to the window and door placement. This allows you to reposition these posts up to 15 feet apart. This means you can reconfigure the size of your rooms as well as choose from different types of window configurations. All of the LV series kit homes have a standard width of 25'-1", but vary in size because of the difference in the length; the LVM (25'-1" length) is our smallest model and the LVL (59'-6" length) is our largest.
The kit is an exterior shell kit package and includes: post and beam, exterior wall panels, faux wall panels, roof framing, select connectors, and siding material. Any good general contractor can build an LV series home. Rocio Romero's kits make the process of building the kit home very easy. Prior to purchasing an LV series home you and your contractor can attain a ballpark estimation of the LV series home from information on Rocio Romero's website

DESIGN LIVE LOADS
The LV series homes must be place on a permanent foundation. There are three standard types of foundations for you to choose from: crawlspace, basement, and/ or slab on grade. All three have been engineered to meet the structural requirements of the LV series home. The crawlspace and basement can be made of a continuous concrete wall or of concrete masonry (CMU) wall. All of the foundations have walls and/or footings along the perimeter of the building as well as the center of the building.
Floor Framing (If applicable): I-joist trusses and blocking by Jager. Floor diaphragm sheathed in 5/8" CDX Plywood (NOT included in the kit home package ).
The slope of the roof is built-up by Firestone Rigid Insulation Boards which are sold pre-tapered with a ¼" slope. The roof also has a valley with a ½" slope that diverts the water into the two downspouts and is concealed behind the faux wall panels.
Residential aluminum fixed windows, sliding windows, sliding doors, and aluminum trim for window units.
drywall painted white interior walls and ceiling, hardwood floors throughout, floor to ceiling tile in bathrooms, and stainless steel custom cabinetry.
A HVAC heat pump system that is recessed inside a utility alcove that is outside of the foundation wall. It is
sunken in so it is not a predominant exterior feature and is easily accessible to service and maintain.
The LV series kit home comes with plans, instructions, and a kit of parts for the exterior shell of the home. Below is a description of what comes in your kit.
Kit consists of (1) Open wall panels (2) Materials (3) Exterior siding
Wall panels and Faux wall panels.
WALL PANELS are part of the structure. They define the exterior walls of your home, as well as one interior
wall that is structural (it is the wall that separates the living room from the bedrooms). These wall panels are open wall panels, and consist of either 2 x 6 or 2 x 4 framing with ½" OSB glued and nailed to the studs. The
studs have predrilled holes along the bottom, so that your electrician can easily wire throughout. The wall panels do not have predrilled holes for plumbing, and do not include insulation or interior finishes. Since the
wall panels have a 1 ½" lip where they overlap the posts as well as the sill plate, the wall panels can be securely glued and nailed onto the posts and sill plate. The panels are installed and fastened using standard
construction procedures. All wall panels are labeled and correspond to the Wall Panel Layout.
