Prefab: HOM's rustic take on factory-built housing

HOM Escape in Style_patio

Readers keep chiming in on the Blue Sky Homes prefab in Yucca Valley. (Scroll down for a peek at the steel-framed house.) Here's another design for the conversation: HOM, a more rustic residence created by the L.A.-based KAA Design Group. Unlike Blue Sky, which is a kit of parts assembled on-site, this HOM is transported by truck as a single module. The design has drawn interest from prefab fans but no installations as of yet. For more images, including the kitchen, click to the jump. For a peek inside the Manhattan Beach home of KAA principal Grant Kirkpatrick, check out our photo gallery from earlier this year.

This tool looks as though it will be perfect. Thanks so much for the suggestion!

The interior of this house is pretty amazing, I like the idea of it being elevated, it helps a lot if you're leaving in a flood prone areas. The most important aspect of prefab house these days is the use of green materials and that's a huge plus.
