As summer hits its stride and the allure of the outdoors arrives we’re happy to report that Method Home’s [2] modern wood wonder has blossomed into a beautiful home. If it seems like a short while since we first introduced you to the “down to earth prefab” you’re right; construction of the cabin took just three months! Situated in Seattle, Washington, the home exudes woodsy warmth [3] tempered by a refined modern form.

The Method Cabin [2]‘s breathtakingly quick construction is a rarity in the prefab world, particularly for a prototype. It seems like all too often the customizable nature of prefabricated homes tends to blow past deadlines as builders wend kinks in the woodwork [4].

To accomplish the feat Method employed a team of expert craftsmen to factory construct the home, reducing its construction waste 50%. The cabin is composed entirely of FSC-certified [5] lumber and includes a variety of sustainable features including energy efficient appliances, eco-friendly cabinets and counter tops, VOC-free paint, and highly efficient insulation.

Method Homes [6] is currently conducting open house tours and the Cabin will soon be available for rentals, so if you’re in the greater Washington area swing on by!
