About this product
- DescriptionPrefabulous and Sustainable dispels the negative myths associated with prefab homes and shows the reader how beautiful and remarkably green these homes can be. In Prefabulous and Sustainable author, Sheri Koones, demystifies the prefabricated house by using 25 unique homes to showcase how factory-built homes are greener, more efficient, sturdier and more cost-effective than site-built homes. The book is divided into three categories - green, greener, greenest - and the homes featured vary in style, design, type of construction and size. All of the homes included in Prefabulous and Sustainable have been customized to create a level of sustainability beyond the inherent qualities of prefab. Written in an easy to understand and approachable style, author Sheri Koones walks the readers through each of the homes explaining the materials, strategies and systems used to create a sustainable living environment. Photographs, captions, floor plans, and sidebars illustrate to readers that green living is t as complicated as one might think and that it really is attainable for everyone. Also included is a resource guide, making this book a hand-on guide for homebuilders.
