As summer hits its stride and the allure of the outdoors arrives we’re happy to report that Method Home’s  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  tempered by a refined modern form.
The Method Cabin ‘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 .
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  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  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!
