Michael Nekuda, sent me some pictures of their latest prefab project. Check out www.metastudiodenver.com for details
Dee Copeland, from Austin Texas wrote a great article about modern prefab this morning. It’s obviously not Denver specific, but there’s some great advice on entering such an endeavor.
One of the emerging building techniques for modern architecture is factory built. Call it Pre-Fab or modular, just don’t call it a trailer. Building high end homes in a factory assures high tolerances, protection for the elements, and less waste.
Architect Michelle Kaufman has been at the forefront of modern pre-fab. Now she’s bringing her talents to Colorado. I found an article and audio interview that reveals her plans for a new townhome development near Regis University.
Check this out. Jill and Erick of Mod Livin‘ are hosting a lecture on modern, prefabricated homes. I’m so jealous because they’re building one of their own! I have plans tomorrow night, but I’m trying to break them so I can go. Hope to see you there.
Colorado is a prime market for modular construction. The high cost of labor and inclement weather have even influenced some major builders to build at least part of their homes in a factory setting. On problem however, is that these homes are tradition Colonial designs, not modern ones. This is about to change.
Michelle Kaufmann, designer of the factory constructed Sunset Breezehouse & Glidehouse, has secured a relationship with a local and respected modular builder. I’ve been a big fan of MKD projects, but never seriously considered one because the factory was located in British Columbia. Now, these homes will be available from a construction site here on the Front Range.

fabprefab is, “a web resource dedicated to tracking developments in the realm of modernist prefab dwellings”. It’s a cool site with an active forum, and many updates on prefabricated modern homes. I found product called the Wee House through fabprefab. I think it would make an awesome mountain retreat.
