Our quality process includes extensive design and testing by a leading structural engineering firm.

No. The Studio+ home is constructed and insulated to perform well in the most extreme climates, hot or cold. Highly efficient insulation, built-in electric heating, and energy efficient doors and windows provide superior insulation. This ensures absolute comfort inside the unit in both cold and hot climate zones. The Studio+ also has large windows and doors placed in strategic air-circulating locations, designed to work with the layout. Additionally, an efficient HVAC system allows you to cool or heat the unit in any climate.
The Luckdrops Studio+ uses a premium 2-component polyurethane spray foam system, which produces a premium seamless, monolithic, and durable closed-cell polyurethane foam air barrier/insulation/vapor retarder suitable for residential and commercial wall applications. In addition, the insulation is separated from the interior with 12.7 mm of gypsum wallboards, which creates an additional thermal barrier. The full assemble provides the following R-values: ceiling – R15, walls – R17, floor – R27.
The entire process from build to arrival on-site, takes about 3-6 months. The build process itself only takes about 30 days with testing and inspections. However, since we go the extra mile to fulfill our 4 step quality assurance process, the build usually takes about 2 months. Shipping and transportation can take up to 1 month, depending on your location. Permitting may also add some time to the process depending on your location.
Some countries/states allow us to order individual appliances locally. If we can source the exact same model locally, we may ask for your permission to ship it from a local supplier and have them install it onsite.
