Super-Fast Prefab: Flat-Pack Steel Home Frame in Just 1 Day


Strong, lightweight and versatile, this home really shows what metal can do. Galvanized steel parts are shipped flat to the site, making it easier to build in remote and difficult-to-access locations (like the desert).

Even more impressive: the exterior frame takes one day and full cladding system can be set up in less than a week, making it possible to work on the weather-proof interior in a matter of days.

Cold-formed, light-gauge and largely-recycled steel is factory-fabricated and incredibly compact for train-and-truck shipping.

The raised metal frame makes for a light footprint on naturally variegated terrain, causing less intrusion to an ecosystem and requiring little (if any) significant site modification.

The frame-and-cladding system means that all additional parts and pieces are easily replaceable – there are no load-bearing walls that require careful consideration down the line when it comes to additions, renovations and so forth.

This prototype from Blue Sky Homes is just the beginning of a series that range from one to three bedrooms and/or bathrooms, combined or separate kitchen, living and dining room areas, and other variable features built on the same modular systems.
