    Small design with great comforts.

    For me, it’s always a question of ‘cost.’

    Frankly, most of the so-called prefab houses have little to offer in terms of cost savings. They’re wonderful looking. Elegant. Mostly ‘green.’ But, what’s the point of ‘prefab’ if they’re going to cost the same as standard construction?

    I’m wondering the same thing. I don’t care what it looks like. I don’t need much space. But I want C-H-E-A-P and I want it to last.
    I’m looking at under-ground houses to save money on construction…

    $200 s.f. is stupid. Any noodle head with a hammer and a brain can build a microhome for less than 50/foot. And that’s super insulated with an R40 envelope. I’m building 13 rentals right now and I hire people to do half the work. Do some research and thinking before you shell out the dough.

    Right now one can purchase existing bricks and mortar anywhere around $60 to $150 per square ft. including the land it sits on. Granted the hipper design elements we all love often are absent. Still it seems to me the prefabers are going to have to get a lot more realistic about pricing if they want to capture a significant market share.

  7. I cannot find a site for this company, all links point to nonexistant websites.

    Hi Phil, It looks like they have gone out of business. I’ll do some more research and see if I can find out for sure…Kent

    Hey!

    Am really interested in maybe helping you to develop this concept in Austin! Please send me more information.

    Why is it that this home looks like a bad copy ot either the Glass House or The Farnsworth House but without the class. Looking at the interior one might as well choose a poor quality mobile home.

    Very nice, bright and clean shapes. This model would do very well in scandinavien. Lets see some more of that kind of work :-)

    Beautiful design and workmanship…but, it’s very expensive.
