The Palo Alto prefab is located on a small lot near Stanford University and replaces an older home. Primarily constructed off site in the Irontown Homes prefab factory in Utah, the modules were then transported to Palo Alto and installed on the lot. During the home’s fabrication, contractors built a full basement with a guest unit in it. The final home is 2,200 sq ft with a modern open floor plan on the ground floor and an efficient design that incorporates lots of natural light.

The exterior is clad with reclaimed barn wood siding sourced in Utah along with a new fiber cement stucco-board product. In front, the porch is covered with a large shady green roof and the garage roof works to collect rainwater that irrigates an old oak tree on the side of the property. Surrounding the house is all permeable paving to soak up stormwater. Finally, the Palo Alto Prefab scored a Build It Green rating of 205.
