Dwell on prefab homes

I am amazed how intuitive Dwell Magazine’s design team is. Three days ago I updated my facebook status expressing frustration at some of the homes in the DC metro area and that I was looking for information on prefab homes. Yesterday, after reading Christopher Bright’s post on Method prefab homes on my Google Reader, I decided to search their site for more on Prefab homes. How did I not notice that they have a whole section on them? Thanks Dwell for the info.

I find the natural look of these homes appealing. Prefab homes or prefabricated homes are dwellings manufactured off-site in advance, usually in standard sections that can be easily shipped and assembled. Modern alternative to building from scratch. But am yet to assess the pros and cons. Do you know one way or another? Drop me a line in comments if you do.
