I already have on my site a top of 12 Best Prefab Homes Around The World, and today I want to present another prefab house made from prefabricated panels from a UK company called ModCell. This prefabricated panels are very highly attractive, energy-efficient and very sustainable.
The ModCell uses straw bale in their panels. These panels are air-tight, mold resistant, and result in practically no waste during prefabrication. Extra wood scraps are burned in the factory’s biomass boiler, extra straw or hemp goes to farms to be used as bedding, and any leftover metal scraps are recycled.
The design of this cute house is very simple. It has a geometrical shape. It’s actually a big cube that you can live in. There’s a lot of wood involved in this project so it’s going to be a very comfortable and relaxing place to live in. It’s like your own refuge, your own place where you can go to escape the busy world. I really like this house. It’s simple and elegant and it makes great use of what nature has to offer. It also respects the environment, which is quite rare. There should be more houses like this one, and there’s still hope that this will someday become reality.
