Prefab housing, pretty awesome.
fastcompany:


In Seattle, a wood-frame apartment building with parking is $130,000 a  unit. It also takes an interminable 36 to 40 months for design and  construction.

Next week, a company called Sustainable Living Innovations will introduce  the new future of the urban built environment: the prefab skyscraper.

SLI’s building costs the same—but it can be designed in  less than 20 months. So for the same price as a building featuring a  wood frame, vinyl windows, a popcorn ceiling, and an ugly beige carpet,  SLI can build a steel-framed building with concrete floor slabs and  ample natural lighting, right out of an IKEA catalog.
