Prefab, Not Bad

TINY HOME – MODULAR – MOBILE – PRE FAB

From motorhomes to mobile homes, California has vacation and retirement appeal. Pre-fabricated homes from the 1960’s still line canyons of Northern California. New luxury homes, geodesic dome homes, with a moldy-oldie cabin, all right next to each other. Plenty of 1970-something mobile homes still in use.

The tiny home revolution may take California by surprise, as more people choose to downsize their life and amount of belongings. Yurts, cabins, ranch homes, cottages, kit cabins, log cabins. Shipping container homes, double wide, single wide with roof awning, 5th wheel with slide-outs – and woodstove?
