Prefabulous is Fab! Mark Nash Real Estate Author, Columnist & Writer 20 April 2007
By Mark W. Nash - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Sheri Koones latest book Prefabulous follows on the heels of her three previous shelter books, all considered home runs by those who are in the residential housing industry. Prefabricated homes of today offer features and benefits that place them on equal footing with stick or site built homes. Koones in her thorough and leave no stone unturned style, explores the options in rich from-the-trenches writing detail, coupled with relative photography.

Prefabulous should be required reading for architecture students as it highlights an important coming trend in North American residential housing. Prefabricated homes are being embraced by builders, developers and designers coast-to-coast as starter, custom, primary and secondary residences. Before you sign a site-built new construction contract, read this book and you will discover an option that can dramatically decrease delays, expenses, stress, time and waste in building your dream home.

Chapters cover: Modular, Panelized, Structural Insulated Panels, Timber Frame, Log Construction, Concrete and Steel. Additional features include a forward, an introduction, and a resource appendix. A must-have guide for prospective new-construction homeowners, manufacturers in the factory-built construction industry and those looking for a "green" alternative to site-built housing.

Useful and EyeOpening if You are Building/Adding to A Home 16 Mar. 2007
By Anonymous Reader - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I always assumed that prefabricated and modular construction were ugly and cheap, but Sheri Koones's Prefabulous has changed my mind entirely. Prefabricated and modular home construction methods have grown up and gone elegant and Koones has produced a detailed book with lavish photographs that will make many homeowners eager to explore these options. It is truly difficult to believe that the homes pictured were not built conventionally.

Prefabulous is more than just a pretty face. Koones is a leading home construction expert who has written several books on residential building and modular design and Prefabulous is in keeping with the detail and insightfulness of her previous work.

Reading Prefabulous is well worth your while if you are building a new home or adding to an existing one, because prefabricated, modular and similar construction methods are typically more cost-effective than conventional techniques. But don't take my word for it-- consumer real estate expert Robert Bruss has rated Prefabulous as 12 stars on a 10 star scale.

Who Knew There Were So Many Options? 15 Mar. 2007
By Writegirl18 - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a beautiful, well-researched and wonderfully presented book by home construction expert Sheri Koones. We have been considering either the purchase or construction of a second home, and based on what I have seen in this book, I am convinced pre-fab is the way to go. The author explained the concept of modular housing in her previous book, Modular Mansions, but this latest work presents the amazing variety of pre-fabricated construction options available to the homeowner/homebuilder. The gorgeous photos will stun you!

Open the Door to New Ideas 7 Mar. 2007
By Word Lover - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a reader who hopes one day to build a home, PREFABULOUS by Sheri Koones opens the door to ingenious, fresh ideas. After pouring over this book, you'll question why anyone would NOT build a home constructed of pre-fab materials, especially after learning that this sort of smart building isn't just faster and often cheaper, but far more environmentally responsible than conventional methods. I recommend this book to anyone intereted in contemeporary architecture and design.

Wish I'd read other rwo star reiews first 18 July 2009
By Geoffrey Matthews - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is one of those rare occaisons when the vast minoroty of reviewers get it right! For some reason I missed the two folks who gave it 2 or less stars and may not have taken much notice antway but buyer beware. I regret the purhase which was to a large extent based on Sarah Susanka's foreword. I have most of her books so having read this book I, like anther reviewer, fail to understand where she is coming from. It's a nice fluffy coffee table book it's only contribution to my investigating prefab applications being a clear description of the various forms but not much else.
