I swear I’m not obsessed with modern prefab homes, but I found another one that I think is really cool and had to share! I first heard about the FlatPak House from my friend Adam who is an engineer in Denver. His company just met with the guys at FlatPak and might become the new site engineers and he thought I should check it out.
To best describe FlatPak…”it’s a system of prefabricated components designed to yield unique solutions to your unique needs and site.” The best part about these homes is that there are endless design options and you can do all of the design yourself! The exterior is made up of as many panels as you like of any size choosing from concrete, wood, stone, and glass. Once the layout and exterior is designed, it’s time to customize the interiors and then off to the shop where they produce permit documents and start production. A truck then delivers all of the separate components and assembles your home on site.
To get a glimpse of FlatPak first hand, they are on tour with the National Design Triennial and are currently being shown at the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston. You should definitely check it out if you’re out that way!
