Devilish Design: Fab Pre-Fab Homes
What is Pre-fab you ask? "Prefab" is the word used to describe homes that are manufactured off-site in advance, then shipped and assembled ons-ite. Now, I know, you are thinking why are we writing about trailers or those pre-built homes you see being carted on trucks on the freeway. Fret not; today's pre-fab homes are sleek, modern and luxurious. So for any of you with a hip outlook on design, a predilection for environmentally-friendly building, and a spend-thrift demeanor, sit back and enjoy: Not only are these prefab homes eco-friendly and extremely cost-effective, they'll satiate your inner design geek as well:
