Earlier this summer we introduced you to Freegreen [2] and their efforts to bring green prefab design to the masses. Recently Lloyd Alter [3] from treehugger [4] conducted an excellent interview with David Wax from Freegreen and architect Greg La Vardera whose smart modern home designs can be found on Houseplans.com [5]. Lloyd looks at the issues facing consumers who decided to go the prefab route, exploring the different approaches to design taken by David and Greg. The interview elicits some great responses from each participant, and sums up what their respective design paths mean for consumers. Head on over to treehugger [4] to check it out!
