The Modules at TempleTown is an impressive project. It embodies what many in the industry believe to be the benefits of off-site fabrication: waste reduction, speedy construction, and cost savings. Designed by Interface Studio Architects, The Modules is a student apartment building in a double-H shape specifically designed to allow natural lighting in all of the rental units.
Speaking of tiny prefabs, Modern Cabana — the same company behind last year’s Sunset Modern Cottage Idea House — has a 10′x12′ demo cabana for sale. The UC 10×12 model retails from $16,375, but this demonstration version is selling with a 25% discount. The Modern Cabana includes a french door, clear cedar siding, denim wall insulation, rigid roof insulation, maple interior paneling, and bamboo flooring.
