About the Book



"Prefab home construction has arrived. The benefits of [building] a prefab home (they are better built, use resources more efficiently, and are healthier to live in) apply just as well to vacation homes as they do to primary residences. [This book] explores the beauty, variety, design, and environmentally positive benefits of prefab construction through the wide variety of prefabrication methods in use today and with prefabulous examples from across the country"--Amazon.com.



Book Synopsis



Prefab home construction has come into its own.

Prefabricated homes used to be considered inferior to houses built on site, but not anymore. In Prefabulous Small Houses, best-selling author Sheri Koones presents 32 stunning prefabricated homes from around North America. 250 beautiful photographs and floorplans show the amazing breadth of styles available to today's homeowners.

Small is the new big.

Everyone from Millennials looking to buy their first homes to Boomers trying to downsize have turned to small houses in recent years. These homes cost less to build, less to heat, and less to maintain. All of the houses in Prefabulous Small Houses range from 325 sq. ft. to 2,000 sq. ft. and showcase construction methods perfect for any climate.

Building better, building greener.

All of the houses featured here are highly energy efficient and are built with sustainability in mind. In eco-friendly prefab construction, local materials are used when possible, metals and wood are recycled, and houses are built with a conscious attempt to preserve the land on which they now stand. A foreword by actor and environmentalist Robert Redford speaks to the urgency with which we must act to combat climate change and how prefabricated small homes have a role to play in that challenge.

Amazing diversity.

The houses presented here cover a truly remarkable range of custom styles and exciting locales, including:

  • The Lake Union Floating House in Washington, which is built right in the water with hybrid marine construction techniques
  • The 325-sq.-ft Casita de Invierno in Florida, made of just 4 rooms with high ceilings
  • The Westport Beach House in Connecticut, built using a panelized system on the ocean front
  • And many more, coast to coast
