Logical Homes Prefab

advertise here

This prefab home was spotted at CES and it might be the next-generation of prefab homes. The home, whose model name is Aegean, is a new design built from shipping containers by Los Angeles Architect Peter DeMaria for Logical Homes, a California prefab outfit. It was built inside the convention center for Olevia, a company that makes energy efficient televisions. Unlike the temporary booths favored by most exhibitors, this small footprint home is a fully engineered steel structure that was assembled in a matter of days. The house has modern lines and a long cantilevered roof – you can hardly see that this home is based on the adaptive re-use of two forty foot cargo containers. – Via – Dwell & Mocoloco

    Now this, I love. I could see myself living in something like this (on a slightly larger scale, of course).

    Hello

    I really enjoy reading your blog. I personally love to live in a house that is prefab. I think it makes alot of sense and its great and unique. I spoke to my friends at http://www.homeinspectionspecialist.com and they told me that sometimes prefab houses have alot better insulation as well as far as maintaining temp. and they can be easily made anywhere.. I look forward to all the updates. I will add your blog to my favorites. thanks again.

    Why even use shipping containers? The purpose should be to reuse them. You’ve apparently wasted most of the material that makes their reuse valuable as a building system.
