Barbecue Nation
The House of Your Dreams Delivered Fresh from the FactoryCurrently, between 5-10% of all new homes are prefab. Experts predict that that number will grow to 30% in the next ten years. Prefabulous describes the many systems available for prefabricating all or parts of a new home, including timber frame and log, as well as modular, panelised, structural insulated panels, steel framing and concrete systems, which are relatively new. Prefabulous describes these systems, compares their advantages and disadvantages and shows beautiful examples of houses built using these techniques. Although all of these prefabricated houses look very different, all of them were manufactured partially or almost completely in a controlled factory environment and transported to the home site to be erected. As a group these systems offer a faster, more energy-efficient and sometimes more cost-efficient method of building.Includes a foreword by Not So Big House author Sarah Susanka, who writes: For homeowners who want to know the options, the advantages and disadvantages of those options, and to see how those prefabricated parts come together into a good, attractive home, read this book.
