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.
