Gallery: PREFAB FRIDAY: miniHome


We’ve waited a long time to talk about this little eco-friendly gem, and now we’re glad we did, because the Sustain Design Studio team has recently added many fantastic images to their website. With a new color scheme and a bunch of interior shots, we can now get a sense of the whole package, and we like what we see.

    This sounds like something I’ve been looking for. I’m certainly interested in the cost
    and when they might be available. Thanks

    This is what I’ve been waiting for and looking for!!! Please send me more information. This appears to be ideal for my situation. Cost would be something I’d need to know – at least a possible price range. And when they would be available for purchase. Thanks.
