The first photo belongs to Going Green, the second to Ningbo Deepblue Smarthouse, and the thrid to Freshwater Prefab.
When I was at school, our Std 5 classrooms were prefab buildings. They were spoken of in a rather derogatory tone of voice but to be honest, I don’t remember them being uncomfortable in any way.
I’m now considering a prefab house. My home, although fantastic, is really just too big – there are rooms I hardly ever go into, in fact the cat spends more time in the one bedroom than anyone else does.
My ideal would be a two bedroom, two bathroom home of a decent size. The second bedroom would be my office and therapy room and would have to be a fair distance away from himself and his TV.
I’ve even found a perfect plot from where I could take my many sunset photos and there isn’t even a lamp post!!!!
Prefab homes aren’t necessarily the cheap looking, boring pieces of construction which we see in many places. They can be very pretty and functional. They are apparently a lot cheaper than conventional building, can be erected in a fraction of the time, can be fully insulated and require a minimum of maintenance. All that’s needed is a level slab on which to erect the house.
Of course, more investigation needs to happen, but the initial prospect is quite exciting. I’m playing with Sweethome 3D and designing my perfect home. It’d be 2 bed, 2 bath as I mentioned. It’d have solar panels and gas so as to be a little less reliant on our notorious Eskom, and because it’d be smaller, the rates and taxes would be less, so in the end our monthly expenditure would also be less. Now if only I can get himself to see my point of view.
I was introduced to nutrition as a small child when my mom used it to treat an ulcer. Since then I've been interested in supplements, healthy eating, reflexology, shiatsu, energy work and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
