Not Your Fathers Manufactured Home.

Prefabricated homes are coming into their own.  No longer are they targets for tornadoes or a dumping ground for old washers and Cameros (no offense meant to either).  Today’s prefabricated or modular homes are on the bleeding edge of style and environmentalism.

Environmentally, modular homes produce less waste when constructed.  Each prefabricated piece is made to the same specifications, allowing building materials to be planned and ordered in exact amounts.  From a design point of view, new modular homes are leading the trend in modern design.  Their designs are simple, clean and concise.

One company, Method Homes , has a very interesting and distinctly Northwest take on the prefabricated home.  Based in Seattle, Washington  Method homes was formed by Mark Rylant and Brian Abramson.  From their website:

“Mark Rylant and Brian Abramson founded Method Homes out of their collective experience in construction, real estate and development; passion for architecture and good design; and desire to add innovation to the home building industry. One day on the job site Mark looked around at all the inefficiencies of site built construction and thought to himself “there must be a better way.” Out of that thought Method Homes was born.”

From the looks of their Method Cabin, they are on to something very exciting.
