I have not written about pre-fabricated homes since they are very expensive and really nothing like a true mobile home. Most are hauled in on flat back trucks with no wheels or chassis whatsoever. However, I am certain that the PlusVilla Pre-Fab is a prime example of how manufactured housing companies will be designing in the near future.
The post I did about Clayton’s I house is proof enough of the designs we can expect. With pre-fab companies closing in on the market and price being their only real issue, the manufacturers are going to have to change their designs just to compete in today’s market.
Since finding the PlusArchitects PlusVilla, I have been thinking of ways I could make my single wide look more like it. By adding a 10 foot addition the entire length of the home and giving the roof a small slant, it would be simple enough, perhaps a bit costly, but very doable. The roof utilizes the living roof concept which appeals to me, albeit the reinforcement to withstand the weight would make it a very expensive endeavor. The long and narrow frame resembles a double wide exactly. The inside has a look that could easily be mimicked by a simple renovation. Take any double wide and remodel it to look like this and you’re bound to increase the equity and resale price.
PlusVilla Pre-Fab Interior
The simplicity of the interior is very clean and eye catching, evoking its Scandinavian roots. Like the typical Scandinavian house, this container style home also features impressive use of wood and a balance of white and light. Here’s some more photos to get you inspired:
I think this is a wonderfully contemporary home (my favorite style) and a mobile home could very well be remodeled to look like it. You’ve already got the frame, all you have to do is box it in, open the front up with large windows and add a boxed in deck to make the underpinning disappear.
