Prefab Homes California


Why California residents choose Stillwater Dwellings to build their home


Stillwater’s butterfly roof and spine & wings design is a revitalized concept of the mid-century modern famous butterfly homes popular in the Palm Springs and Central Coast regions. Our new designs have been proven to offer significant flexibility to our clients to modify/customize our floor plans to better fit their site, budget, and wish list.


The structural engineering principle behind SWD allows our clients to enjoy expansive walls of glass in their homes without the need for costly structural bracing and steel components. All Stillwater homes are pre-engineered to satisfy the stringent structural requirements that are common in California construction.

Comprehensive Permitting Services

Stillwater’s cadre of in-house architects and design professionals are well-versed in the requirements of several jurisdictions across the state. Unlike typical architectural or design/build firms, Stillwater manages the entire permitting process. From planning and architectural review commission presentation to organizing outside consultants, Stillwater is there. We work closely with consultants in the following areas: foundation design, structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, civil engineering, and landscape design.

Energy Performance and Sustainability

All SWD homes are designed with high energy performance in mind. Our hybrid insulation specifications along with state of the art window system enables Title 24 energy compliance, including California’s Green Building Code (CALGreen).
