Hive Modular, a Minneapolis-based company that sells modular, contemporary homes, recently sent us photos of this X-Line prefab in Vadnais Heights, Minnesota. The X-Line 003 features an exterior of fiber cement, steel, and locally harvested cedar, while the interior features stylish modern elements. Pay particular attention to the translucent polycarbonate walls by Polygal, the red IKEA kitchen, and the custom tables from Eastvold Custom Woodworks.
Michelle Kaufmann is continuing her work on a modern green home in Northern California. Located on a constrained lot, the 1,550 square-foot home will be prefabricated — as currently planned — with two modules. And although the home will be a lot smaller than the average new construction home in this country, Michelle Kaufmann Studio has designed it to feel bigger.
Hope you're enjoying a relaxing Halloween weekend. Don't forget to turn back the clock. In the mean time, now that you have an extra hour, feel free to browse through some of last month's coverage. We had a heavy amount of Solar Decathlon coverage, as well as several articles on prefab homes. Lots of homes are getting finished, and we'll keep covering the green ones. Plus, shout out to our newest sponsor, Green Build Post, a community to discuss current trends and products in green building.
