About the book
The rising cost of fuel and the growing commit­ment to protect the environment have sparked exciting innovations in prefab home construction. Showcasing the unlimited possibilities offered by prefabrication to build incredibly energy-efficient, green homes, Prefabulous World features sophisticated examples of eco-friendly home design in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Canada, the United States, England, Germany, South Africa, and beyond. With floor plans, multiple images of the exterior and interior of each home, and an extensive resource section listing architects, builders, and suppliers, this book is a vibrantly illustrated yet practical guide that reveals how living in a beautiful, well-built, energy-efficient home is achievable for us all.
