Harper Design's 'Prefab Modern' was a huge hit, showcasing entire preassembled housing units available to today's home buyer. 'Prefab Elements' follows up on that book's bestselling success, looking not at complete houses but rather at individual prefab amenities, ready-made and easy to incorporate into your existing home. Ready-made shower and whirlpool units can convert your bathroom into a luxury getaway. Prefab staircases and risers can transform the look of your home. There are even prefab skylights to dramatically change your homes lighting. These sorts of materials are perfect for renovation projects, and can even be used in brand new constructions.
'Prefab Elements' discusses this phenomenon, presenting scores of new materials and elements to change the way you view your home. Also included is a fascinating history of how the prefab movement started and how architects like Frank Lloyd Wright became involved. A source list and glossary are included to help homeowners get up to speed on the exciting new opportunities prefabricated elements offer today.
