Tony Sarich, co-founder of American Modular Systems (manufacturer of Gen7 line of modular classrooms that we featured last year), plans to build an eco-friendly home and winery using what was learning developing Gen7.

Following on the success of a prototype prefab in Yucca Valley, Blue Sky Homes plans to break ground this month on another prefab in the same area.
