There are plenty of awesome prefabs (some even relatively affordable) that you can configure and order right now, but if want to fast forward past all of the land buying, design, and construction, here's an award-winning prefab modern cabin in scenic Lost River, West Virginia that's all ready to go. Designed by New York City-based firm Resolution:4 Architecture, the three-bedroom, 2,048-square-foot dwelling was completed in 2008 for a Washington, D.C.-area family who wanted a remote but comfy weekend retreat that can double as a by-the-night rental house.
The streamlined, cedar-clad "Lost River Modern", essentially a 16-foot wide by 24-foot long box, places a master bedroom, kitchen, living/dining area on the main floor, and additional bedrooms and a family room in the lower level. The floor-to-ceiling windows along the length of the cabin bring in natural light and lead to a deck overlooking trees and the 30 acres of unrestricted land included in the property. The home, decked out in bamboo floors, maple cabinets, and granite countertops, will come furnished for $399K. What you see is what you get, but here are three different sets of photos to peruse: current listing photos, project shots from Resolution: 4, and, finally, a few glamour shots from when the home was featured in Dwell.
