Could you go PREFAB? One Vancouver company, PLACE Architects is making it a lot more stylish and easy to do so. Prefab houses are no longer just small, cookie cutter properties, but beautiful and very well designed residences.
Located in West Vancouver, PLACE Architects have designed this Green constructed prefab home, PH-1, to be contemporary, and in this case, for a family of 5 (with dogs).
Prefab allows you to have a lot of flexibility, and to change with times (i.e. size of family and needs of your residence). All you need is a nice plot of land. In Vancouver, where many houses in great neighbourhoods are tear downs, finding a good plot of land is easier than you think.
