Description

The Prefab Home looks at the emerging world of prefabricated or modular housing, and delves into how new advances are being made to create prefab homes in the popular and widespread Arts & Crafts style of the early twentieth century. When Michael Buchanan set out to find ways to build a house more cost-effectively, he turned to prefab construction. He wanted to pursue his dream without sacrificing his sense of style, all while staying within a realistic budget. What he discovered about the possibilities of cost-efficient prefabricated housing will astound and amaze anyone who thinks "prefab" necessarily means "double-wide!"< BR>The book traces the home's creation from beginning design phases, through production at the factory, to placement and assembly onsite, to interior design and decoration. The whole process was filmed and will be featured as a special episode for "This Old House", to air on PBS this spring and then syndicate to other stations. < BR>show more
