Synopsis

Prefab home construction has arrived. The benefits of buildings a prefab home (they are better built,  use resources more efficiently, and are healthier to live in) apply just as well to vacation homes as they do to primary residences. Prefabulous Small Houses explores the beauty, variety, design, and environmentally positive benefits of prefab construction through the wide variety of prefabrication methods in use today and with prefabulous examples from across the country.

The houses range in size from 400 sq. ft. to 2,000 sq. ft. and are built with modular, SIPs, panelized, log home packages, kit packages, and hybrid systems. Building with prefab usually means spending less for a better quality home. And it also means building greener; all the houses featured are highly energy efficient and sustainable.
