Ken A. Miller, USGBC
Director-Owner
Licensed General Contractor

With over 36 years of experience as a licensed General Contractor and hands-on builder, Ken is always on the look-out for new and innovative building techniques and products that are energy efficient, healthy and safe, and that address environmental concerns.

Throughout his career, Ken has facilitated the construction of a wide range of residential, commercial, government, and historical projects.

Ken’s design and creation of the kama-EEBS™ panel was a direct response to clients who wanted buildings that were more environmentally friendly, more thermally efficient, more durable and, at the same time, cost effective. After extensive research, Ken concluded that if he was going to build with such a product he would have to design it himself. So, he did. kama-EEBS™ was created to meet and exceed the requests of his clients.

Green Building

Green building is the practice of increasing the efficiency with which buildings use resources – energy, water, and materials – while reducing building impacts on human health and the environment, through better siting, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal – the complete building life cycle.
Effective green building can lead to:

1. Reduced operating costs by increasing productivity and using less energy and water

2. Improved public and occupant health due to improved indoor air quality

3. Reduced environmental impacts by reducing and/or eliminating greenhouse gas emissions, recyclability, reduction in waste and construction time
In the United States, buildings account for:

  • Between 40 and 49% of total energy use
  • 25% of total water consumption
  • 70% of total electricity consumption
  • 38% of total carbon dioxide emissions

However, the environmental impact of buildings is often underestimated, while the perceived costs of building green are overestimated.

Green building brings together a vast array of practices and techniques to reduce and ultimately eliminate the impacts of buildings on the environment and human health.

kama-EEBS™ Panels are the most cost effective, safe, healthy and environmentally safe building product on the market today.

About the Company

REAL Housing Ltd. is an Israeli company committed to the development of affordable housing using renewable energy to power a sustainable future. Formed in 2007, REAL Housing combines advanced energy technology with innovative construction techniques to bring a fresh solution to the global community.

Their solutions are based on decades of experience in both the construction industry and the building energy research community. Two of the founders are affiliated with the University of Colorado. Many of the innovations grew from their experiences with the Solar Decathlon, an international competition to design and build small solar-powered homes. REAL Housing delivers these innovations to the global housing marketplace.

REAL Housing seeks to redefine affordability. Traditionally, affordable housing has been defined by low first cost to the homeowner. With growing environmental awareness and uncertainty in our energy future, low first cost is not enough. What good is an inexpensive house if the owner can’t afford its future? Their vision marries affordable construction and operating costs, using factory-built and energy-efficient designs, together with the environmental stewardship and energy security of solar energy systems. They build dreams that will be as affordable in the future as they are today.

The development of housing that is affordable and environmentally conscious is at the center of the company concept. However, the vision of REAL Housing does not end at the design and construction of leading-edge housing units. Starting with a base in Israel, REAL Housing is meeting the needs of a country that requires innovative housing solutions in a challenging physical environment. From this base, REAL Housing is putting in place partnerships that will expand its operations to meet the needs of communities around the world.

Designs

Their house design are based on modular and prefabricated construction. The spine, formed by conventional shipping containers, provides structure and life support. In each design, the spine comprises the kitchen, laundry, bathrooms, and equipment spaces. Behind the scene, it also includes the building electrical service and all plumbing and HVAC systems. You will notice that there is no plumbing, piping, or ductwork outside the spine. While their smallest homes use a single shipping container for the spine, the larger home designs combine two containers to allow larger kitchens and more bathrooms.

Living and bedroom spaces are attached to the spine. The layouts provide natural separate between the public spaces and the more private bedroom areas. The smallest home designs have two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with larger spaces and more rooms in the larger home designs.
