What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Interview: What's Up With Prefab?
Above: A playhouse is a good way to step into the world of prefab. VB: I've read concerns that some suppliers use poor materials to cut costs. How can someone make sure the manufacturer they're using for a prefab is legitimate?HJ: Know that cost is going to be your biggest determinate. If you find a supplier or manufacturer that offers homes at $150 a foot, well, that's the quality that you're going to get. If the pricing is similar to a custom home, the quality will be similar to a custom home. Ask what's included in the quote, and ask to see examples. You can ask to go see one of their homes today, or even go on a walk through of their factory. More: A Sleek Prefab Warms Up7 Instant Backyard Getaways
The oddest example yet might be the miniaturization of a modern masterpiece into a playhouse, as in Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House (Plano, IL, 1951). Mies supposedly said, "God is in the details," in which case the playhouse is unfortunately lacking — it is wood instead of steel and has corner posts where the original had none. But still, it immediately recalls the original in an odd sort of way.
