Constructed of prefabricated timber on a foundation basement of pre-cast concrete, this 300 square meter single family home integrates the topographical setting of a hillside slope on the edge of a quaint Swiss village in the Kanton Thurgau.
Yet another creative manifestation of the shipping container, the Sauna Box from Castor is entirely self-sufficient, getting its electric power from solar panels and heat from a wood-fired stove for sustainability. An insulated 96” cube of sculptural corten steel (it is not a true shipping container), the water-tight Sauna Box is a custom-built prefab structure, can be shipped anywhere, and requires very little in the way of site preparation.
We’ve talked before about some of the stylish designs from FabCab, and today’s post is the first of three that will outline some of the newer, more versatile home designs. All FabCab home packages are pre-cut and ready to ship to most building sites, offering an easy way to get started on the low impact cottage of your dreams.
The first model is only 550 square feet, and one of the most versatile designs available. In most jurisdictions, this size fits within backyard cottage/accessory dwelling unit requirements, making it perfect to use as a small hunting cabin, guest bedroom, or cozy work studio.
A Boulder, Colorado-based land developer has found an unusual way to offer a solution to a growing land-use problem in downtown Colorado Springs.
Newton owns about a half acre of property, where he has installed five factory-built modular homes near Kiowa and El Paso streets. There is a sixth home expected to be delivered soon as well.
Method Homes latest prefab series packs some serious green punch in the latest designs. The home in the photos is called Paradigm, a collaboration between Seattle-based Method Homes and New York-based Bogue Trondowski Architects.
If the 550 square foot FabCab home is a little too small for your taste, you may be interested in the medium size home the company offers, with as much as 848 square feet of interior living space. This is another great option for a hunting cabin, guest house, or getaway home, offering an extra bedroom for storage or a bedroom for friends.
The open floor plan features 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom with cathedral ceilings and flexible space, lots of storage, and a larger kitchen than the smaller home design. The bathroom includes a walk-in, curbless shower and an energy-efficient fireplace is an add-on option for the living room.
For this FabCab home option, home packages start at $122,000, and construction estimates at $206,000. For more information, visit FabCab.com
