DIY : A PreFab Project


This week’s Green Tuesday feature is one for all the Do-It-Yourself-ers to take notice of : over at A PreFab Project our ninja Chris has been overseeing/getting involved with the construction of his prefab weekend/vacation home in West Virginia – designed by none other than Resolution: 4 Architecture. Chris seems pretty involved with the construction personally, and has been documenting the entire process – from budget to building – over on his blog.

From A PreFab Project:

Blogging the progress on our Res4-designed modern prefab cabin in Lost River, West Virginia. We intend to use the cabin both as a rental and a weekend place, and expect that it will be finished (and available for rent!) by the beginning of August. Please email lostrivermodern AT gmail DOT com with any questions or suggestions.

  2. These guys have done a great job documenting this project on their blog. They really show how building prefab really works.
    I might have to rent the place, so I can check it out for myself.
