Prefab Housing


As I mentioned a while back, my better half and I have been talking a lot about our living situation lately, and looking to step up our game a little bit, with a more friendly work-from-home setup for both of us. We’ve been looking at a lot of options, but I’ve been very intrigued by the new crop of prefab housing. Customizable, modern design, efficient, built for solar and sustainability. From what I’ve seen, I’ve been very impressed by Michelle Kaufmann’s Glidehouse. I’ve heard that when all is said and done, installing one of these is comparable in price to building a house, although in the still-overpriced market where we live, I wonder if that would still be true. I also wonder if a structure like this would be able to comply with the ultra-strict building codes and harsh winters of the Sierra.

Although this may not be in the cards right now, it’s still nice to imagine… The main house, a small satellite building for my office, and another satellite building for my better half’s business. I really like the outdoor-living concept, especially with our amazing California summers, and it seems like this style of house would be a good way to embrace that. Here are a few more pics of the Glidehouse.
