“Cabin porn goes coastal in Nina Freudenberger's Surf Shack" -- Vanity Fair

Peek inside the bungalows, trailers, and beach homes where surfers retreat after a day on the waves. Surf Shack highlights longtime enthusiasts and dedicated newcomers whose homes reflect not just a sport or a passion, but also a way of life. These quiet harbors embrace a casual ease, the break between the waves. Vibrant photographs of design details and bright beaches from Malibu to the Rockaways, from Kamagawa to Torquay capture the soulful milieu of a lifestyle we all aspire to.

Efficient and inexpensive to produce, pre-fabricated homes are an ideal solution to the financial and environmental costs facing the modern homeowner. Their extremely versatile format also makes them adaptable to all kinds of locations, be it a secluded off-the-grid setting or a dense urban area.

This survey of the world's most innovative pre-fab houses explores the full range of possibilities, suitable for anyone interested in clever and creative home-building solutions--no architectural degree required. From carbon-neutral houses to plug-and-play dwellings and converted shipping containers, each chapter explores the varied and exciting ways that people are using pre-fabricated technology to address contemporary challenges.

Richly illustrated with photographs and drawings, featuring projects selected by a longtime expert in pre-fab architecture, Pre-Fab Living presents factory-made houses in a new light. Whether designing on a tight budget, crafting something self-sustaining, or simply looking for new spatial ideas, architects, designers, and home builders alike will find it to be an essential source of inspiration.
