I have been researching prefabricated modular housing as a personal interest for possibly ten years now. As an “eco-design” junkie, I’m always looking for smarter design solutions that not only look beautiful but also make saving energy and other resources (like money!) both simple and convenient. I am also interested in compact living, and while we are undeniably spoilt in Africa to be blessed with lots of space, I have never understood the Americanized “bigger is better” mentality when it comes to homes.
