Prefabulous + Almost Off the Grid, by Sheri Koones (foreword by Robert Redford), highlights the many ways prefabrication is used to create almost-off-the-grid homes—houses that are not only environmentally preferable but often operate at nearly zero annual energy cost. Taking energy from the grid when necessary and returning any excess energy produced, almost-off-the-grid homes function on a fraction of the energy required by most houses, and additionally are more comfortable, healthier, quieter inside, and far cheaper to operate. As energy costs continue to rise, the almost-off-the-grid house proves its worth. Prefabulous + Almost Off the Grid profiles more than 30 of the most energy-efficient homes in the United States, sharing floor plans; the latest, most efficient technologies; and multiple images of the exterior and interior of each prefabricated home. This book can benefit those looking into building a new home or adding on to their new home using both prefabricated construction and green building features. 240 pages with 200 color illustrations.
