The Taliesin Mod.Fab is an example of simple, elegant, and sustainable living. The one-bedroom, 600-square-foot prototype residence relies on panelized construction to allow for speed and economy on site or in a factory. It can be connected to utilities or be \”unplugged,\” relying on low-consumption fixtures, rainwater harvesting, greywater re-use, natural ventilation, solar orientation, and photovoltaics to reduce energy and water use. The structure is dimensioned and engineered to be transportable via roadway.
The Taliesin Mod.Fab has received numerous awards, including Sunset Magazine’s Best Green Home Award and Time Magazine’s Best Green Design. Through a partnership with Lindal Cedar Homes, they are available for purchase: http://lindal.com/modfab/
