Going green with a prefabricated home

Prefab homes had a notion of resembling odd-looking square structures you’d find on architecture books leaning on abstract art. But things have changed. Prefab homes are now becoming more popular, and Sheri Koones’ book “Prefabulous + Almost Off the Grid: Your Path to Building an Energy-Independent Home” provides an in-depth look on the benefits of building green homes based on prefabrication.

After experiencing some frustration of not being able to find books that she liked on constructing homes, Sheri took it upon herself to write. After doing some extensive research, her books have now become a source of information on building houses. And “Prefabulous” is no different.

With more than 30 profiled prefabricated houses, the coffee book is filled with wonderful photos of beautiful homes brimming with information. Some of the houses came from green builders such as Insulspan,which had three homes featured: Lakeside Green Cottage, Zero Energy Idea House and Passive Craftsman. What makes the book even more interesting is that the methods being presented are the latest in the building industry.

Those who are interested in building sustainable homes will find this book a good read and benefit from its time-saving methods and cost saving tips, and more importantly by going green in helping protect the environment.

“Prefabulous” can be purchased online at Amazon.com. Link to the book: http://amzn.to/QXaNZq
