Elegant Modern Prefab Homes Defy Portable House Type


A house on wheels inevitably conjures up mental images of trailer parks or other conventional portable homes. These sleek alternatives use modern material, clean lines and sharp edges to challenge this stereotype. Moreover, their elevated design is entirely situational and essential for providing views out over the beautiful surrounding landscape and to bring the bases of the buildings above the top of the winter snow.


While these were built with a specific site and spatial configuration in mind they are also adaptable portable house designs that could be applied in various contexts quite successfully. Their scale works with wide open spaces, certainly, but one could equally imagine parking their new wheeled wood-and-steel mobile home in an urban lot as well.
