Modular Prefab Modern Farmhouse

  • | Modular Prefab

Modular prefab construction offers great advantages in quality control and speed of delivery. Our challenge was to get the most done in the factory while providing an airtight, thermal-bridge-free enclosure and owner-approved finishes. By working with a custom prefabricator, we were able to collaboratively arrive at solutions for air sealing, insulation, structure, and site-finishing. The local GC poured the foundation, applied exterior insulation, and installed fixtures, finishes, decks, and cabinetry.
