After failing to find a modern home in their price range, the Munday family invested in a prefab home; all finished house photos courtesy of East Bay Modern
Sara and Ben Munday were getting nowhere in their search for a modern home in the East Bay. "There just wasn't much on the market in our price range," says Sara. "We were either finding homes that were too expensive, or Eichler-like homes that needed a lot of work." Then, Sara spotted an article about a new kind of prefab home, one that promised high quality for a lower price. "I didn't believe a new home could be built for that amount," says Ben. "In fact, I didn't believe it until the day they finished." For prefab skeptics, this is a case study in efficiency, and ultimately, budget.
