Mod Mod Homes

Today's Wall Street Journal has an article on mod(ern) mod(ular) homes. I considered building a modular home a few years ago now that American architects are entering the market with high-tech, quality construction solutions for less than half the cost of constructing a home going the traditional route. I eventually decided against it since the prefab industry is in its infancy, and there are very few options available commercially at this time. But it is an exciting industry that takes into account green building, sustainable living and cost-effective building methods. The article references a web site that links to all the architects developing mod mod buildings: Some Assembly Required. At this time, the web site appears to be unavailable, probably due to the WSJ readers trying to view the page.
