Pre-Fab to the Extreme

February 25, 2008

Rocio Romero has got quite a few interesting pre-fab designs under her belt... Although, I think in practice that most of these designs could be even more streamlined... the plan above is a one bedroom in 625SF. Our house has 2 bedrooms in less than that. While I realize that not everyone want to live in the equivalent of a dorm room, I think that if you're willing to build/buy a house that is only 625, you'd probably be up for making the most of the space.
But whether you think that this particular house could handle some tightening of the spaces, I'm sure that we can agree that RR's latest design is probably a bit oversized! Somehow, 3000SF pre-fab homes just don't make sense to me. I mean, isn't part of the appeal of pre-fab the ecological advantages? And really, unless you've got a family of 12, there is no way that you can justify living in a 3000SF home with a pool as green. Not to mention the fact that so many of the house's aspects are clearly site built... you have to wonder what the benefit is to pre-fab in this case? I'd love to hear opinions...
