I don't know about the $300 a month deal(for 300 it better include utilities), but I would rock it.

looks worst then trailer homes to me Click the image to open in full size.

The future i believe is going to be prefab green modern houses. Built in solar panels for electricity, runners to use rainwater, etc etc. Fairly cheap, semi stylish, easy to construct and easy to move around.

I bet if you tried really, really hard you could put some insulation and a window or 2 in it. That should help Click the image to open in full size.

haha yea but you can get prefabs with walls instead of glass. that was just for reference. But they're perfect for someone who isn't looking for a huge house. buy a plot of land, buy a prefab house, drop it on, and you have quite the dainty little house.

a little imagination and you could go a long way. its actually a very old technique to use blocks and build a house. easy cheap construction. but considering that it was mainly only used to make houses for show it never really struck. there was some kind of show where designers actually built prefabs with "green" intentions for a showcase. But with the previous housing boom it was hard to get a company to build many prefabs because it was easier just to go out and buy one. Ill be the first to admit that some are still quite pricey depending on materials, location, and if you have any knowledge on how to put a house together. its not exactly like legos, you gotta have a place for your crap to go too haha. But with better technology out there now, and better materials to work with, i think this is going to work quite well. Theres a huge niche market out here especially in the NW corner for "green" homes.

heres a pic of a good one.

You can see they're very little, because well they are meant to be cheap and transportable, and you can lug around a 2 story house.

and here you can see it wouldn't be too hard to stack them and build a complete modern looking house.

How much do the small ones go for, roughly?

My grandfather has some nice land in the mountains of NC, and I'd love to put some cheap housing up there to use as a vacation home for the family.

Depending on materials and such they can range from 50k for a basic one with no furnishings delivered to you, and up to a few million bucks. Google around. there are alot of reputable companies that build prefabs. I've actually seen a prefab up close and they are great for replacement summer cottages, vacation homes, or buy a small one and drop it in a backyard and ta-da.

Haha true true Click the image to open in full size. Ive only been intrested in it because i see a great business proposition in it. I visited this small production plant called solar sun last week which is making solar panels that you can just roll out on your roof and plug in instead of the panels and metal frames. Anyone in he NW will know that the rich hippies up here throw money away just to be "green" Click the image to open in full size. That and with the housing crush i think people will start realizing that just because they are single and can afford a 2 story house with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, that maybe they should dive in. Its a great alternative to, well housing really.

Like i said before, you could buy a small one and chuck it in you backyard and have a guest house or something too! beats walking in on you sister in law in YOUR shower.

get deployed to Kyrgyzstan and that's what you live in for 6 months. They build the dorms out of stacks and stacks of these. Throw some siding and paneling on them and BAM, instant dormitory complex.

Am I on crack, or does that house have pretty much all glass walls? How the FUCK is that 'green'?? You know how much heat that house would let in/out?

probably not normal window glass but the double layered kind that insulates; blocks and keeps heat in.

depends on if all the "window walls" are the thermogenic kind with the multi layers of inert gas in them. actually makes a very good heat/cold barrier.
