PreFabDead

Had some things in the queue here at BB but got a bit lazy. They are still in the drafts file, so eventually will see the light of day.

However, figured I’d toss this one up, a recent entry on Greg LaVardera’s “Lamidesign” blog about the current state of PreFab modern houses. As the headline implies, his view is not particularly sanguine. However, the larger point is that affordable, efficient and modern housing that is actually viable in the marketplace can only come from true systemic innovations in production (a la the Swedish model) – not simply through clever individual choices by particular manufacturers/providers of specific manufactured/prefab houses or kits.

LaVardera, by the way, continues to put out really cool modern house plans for sale – definitely worth checking out.
