I love spending my Sundays going to open houses, even though I’m not currently in the market to buy a new home. Why? Because I love looking for design inspiration in other peoples’ homes.

This week I stumbled upon a very unusual open house…and I can’t stop thinking about it. It was a prefab home – and it was what I’d call Pre-Fabulous! It wasn’t your typical image of a mobile home…because it was contemporary, energy efficient, and ultra-hip!

When I got home I started searching online to see if I had stumbled upon a diamond in the rough, or whether this was a new trend in prefab housing…the second is definitely the truth. I stumbled upon a great website called zenkaya.com, which really whetted my appetite, and then later found Method Homes, which got me equally excited.

Best of all, many of these prefab beauties are green and use only a fraction of the energy of a typical home. Plus, many of them are even LEED certified.

If you haven’t checked one out lately, I’d highly recommend you go-online – or open house hunting in your neighborhood – to check out the latest and greatest. This is especially true if you’re a fan of mid-century modern architecture. It certainly opened my eyes to a whole big prefabricated world!

    These homes have such great style. I wish
    they were more readily available in our
    area. They're sleek, unincumbered and functinal. How perfect.

    Between me and my better half we’ve owned more MP3 players through the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, recent years I’ve been feeling relaxed to one distinct players. Why? Because I was pleased to discover how well-designed and fun to utilize the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
