Contemporary Prefab Home for a Writer

Last time I mentioned Jet Prefab,* the company had just released an affordable home plan called The One Story.  That contemporary design has been tweaked and expanded for a new design called the Tess House that I want to share.  It was inspired by a customer dreaming of a writer’s house on Shelter Island in New York.

The three-bedroom Tess House has two decks — both could be used to relax outside and write — and an isolated bedroom that’s connected to the house only with a narrow breezeway.  This same bedroom is next to a home-office den, a convenient location for the writer’s middle-of-the-night inspiration.

The total plan includes 1,645 square feet and carries a price tag of $279,000.  This includes the floor system, walls, roofing, double-pane windows, interior and exterior insulated doors, cellulose insulation thermal envelope, electrical outlets, switches, recessed lighting fixtures, cedar and Hardie siding, drywall, flooring, plumbing, etc.

In terms of process, after the design phase, the Jet home is built in a factory in about 3-5 months.  During that time, site work is completed.  Thereafter, Tess House is delivered and assembled within 1-2 weeks.  At this point, the home is about 90% complete and the rest is just utility connections and other finish work.

    This is an exciting design. It would be helpful to know if any of your pre-fab designs have been built, delivered and installed yet, and if you can share photos of any of the projects. Thanks!

    Pretty cool design, especially for a prefab. I like all the windows, and the layout seems to flow well. Seems like one that should sell well, especially with the high demand for more modern style homes like this.

    Please be careful. These guys talk and look good but they are bad people. Look up American Green Home Builders. They used to go by that name and took money from a lot of people including myself. They never finished my house and disappeared after taking a lot of money. This company started with money taken from innocent people. Do you research and ask for references.. Don’t end up like I did ..broke with an unfinished home.

    not sure a walk-thru room works for a writing den. too much opportunity for interruption, creates awkward situation for partner etc. switch the bedroom with the office maybe?
