Pre-fab it: Homb

Being completely inspired by my last post, I couldn’t resist doing a pre-fab encore. Check out Homb –  a fantastic line of pre-fab homes designed using a 100 sq. ft. triangular system. Go here to view more plans. It turns out, that while squares and rectangles are perfectly fine for building…triangles are way cooler! This ingenious line is created by the brilliant marriage of two amazing companies: Skylab Architecture and Method Homes – both committed to designing spectacular architecture AND respecting the environment – gotta love that! Look at how beautiful these Homb structures are…

Aren’t they stunning? Would you consider living in a pre-fab home?

Pre-fab it : Logical homes

Green building, as you know is something I love. Recycled, re-purposed, re-used, I can’t get enough! So, when I found this fantastic California based, green, pre-fab home company – Logical Homes, I had to share some of their plans with you. Sleek and modern, they pride themselves on filling their structures with light, clean lines and plenty of feel good, earth friendly building materials.

With a huge range of plans, there is a home suitable for everyone. These structures also make great secondary buildings such as an office, studio or guest house!

This first plan (The Kara) is a sweet 320 square feet…with a lovely expanse of outdoor living (an additional 270 sq. ft.)…

This next one (The Aegean) provides a little more wiggle room coming in at 640 sq. ft. and I just love that strong cantilevered roof!

And the big sister to the Kara is the Kara 1512, providing 1512 sq. ft of living space on two levels. Check out the translucent walls of the staircase – so cool!Pre-fab fabulous, right? To check out all their plans, visit their website here.

Could you live in one of these? I think I could!
