It’s been a couple years since we last checked in on the work of Seattle-based FabCab, a company that makes prefab and kit-built, eco-friendly homes and accessory dwelling units. Short for “fabulous cabin,” FabCab has several timber-frame houses under construction in Washington and recently shared photos of this two-level cabin on Camano Island. It has a timber frame, SIP panels, and a soaring water-front wall of windows.
I mentioned the launch of Connect:Homes recently and how the founders of this company hope to reinvent modular prefab with a unique approach. They took a big first step towards doing that with a prototype home on display at Dwell on Design in Los Angeles last weekend. The crowds, from everything I’ve heard, deeply enjoyed this warm, contemporary abode and the interior touch of style by Kishani Perera.
Chroma is a recycled-acrylic material by 3form that can be used as a horizontal surface. It’s best used in illuminated designs and is available with a matte finish and thousands of translucent color combinations. Up until now, 3form offered Chroma with 40% pre-consumer recycled content, but the company recently upgraded the formula, as explained in an article about closing the loop.
