Prefab homes from Germany


Homevoyeur’s recent post about Sears Catalog homes got me thinking about the current trends in prefabricated homes. As a kid I would already order catalogs from Dutch companies like Goldewijk en Selekt.  And ever since I picked up a magazine with floor plans in the USA I have frequented websites of companies selling floor plans on more than one occasion. More recently, I learned about a German company called Huf Haus. They claim to be the Bentley of prefab homes, and they just might be right…

I was lucky enough to witness their launch in the Netherlands as the company I worked for did their PR. They spread out rapidly and have recently opened shop in the USA. They build modular post and beams homes in a factory but leave a lot to their clients own wishes and demand. The homes are anything but standard. The modular structure allows for clients to build a unique home.  Huf Haus works together with interior designers and top of the bill appliance manufacturers to make sure the inside of the home it catered too also.

Heat insulation layers on the structural wooden parts make the homes extremely energy-efficient. That and the fact that modular factory built homes are much kinder to the environment make Huf Haus a great green alternative too.
