prefab: michelle kaufman
Prefab housing by Michelle Kaufmann allows for multi-unit developments and single family homes with varied elements with energy efficient, eco-friendly materials and systems into each design. The module units have plenty of ventilation and natural lighting to minimize energy loss from climate control. Healthy finishes such as non-toxic, low VOC paints, formaldehyde-free cabinetry, water-saving plumbing fixtures, on-demand water heaters, efficient mechanical ventilation systems, and a photovoltaic system can also be included in your design. MK Designs are smart, thoughtful prefab that can even meet Energy Star and LEED ratings, they are versatile and sustainable in many home sizes, for smaller lots, for sloped sites- accentuating the land topography, etc. See the designs firm's new publication: Prefab Green: the work of michelle kaufmann designs and their website here.
