3.0 out of 5 stars This is an unfair review!, 3 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prefabulous + Sustainable: Building and Customizing an Affordable, Energy-Efficient Home (Hardcover)
I'm a little disappointed with this book but it's probably my own fault and has little to do with the author, who is obviously extremely knowledgeable and passionate, or the contents. I bought it because I saw it mentioned in the 'Grand Designs' magazine and - because the mag didn't point out that it was an american publication - I assumed it was mostly concerned with the kind of prefabricated houses available in Europe such as Huf Haus. It isn't. It's very much concerned with the american tradition of pre-fab housing and what is currently possible over there. It makes a strong case for the ethical and practical advantages of having a house more or less built in a factory and then assembled on-site, has some interesting case studies and advice, but is ultimately rather limited in its application to this country. A book of case studies of people who have had pre-fab houses built by the various companies based in this country and Europe, with advice as to the pit-falls and advantages, would be very useful, but this isn't it!
