Building a Modern Prefab Home in Wine Country 

There is a new game in town, and it takes the form of the modern prefab home.  Once considered a low cost path to home ownership, manufactured homes have come a long way since they first gained popularity in the mid 1900s. Modern-day prefabs are luxurious, hip, eco-friendly and are rapidly becoming one of the hottest options in today's residential real estate market.

Nowhere is this truer than in the California wine country of Sonoma and Napa Counties where prefabs have gained a lot of press and popularity in recent years. Contemporary design, sustainability, energy efficiency, and quality construction give this housing trend traction with homebuyers who might eschew the hassles of building a traditional custom home.

At the forefront of modern prefab design in Sonoma and Napa Counties is Blu Homes, who used architect Michelle Kaufmann's classic prefab Breezehouse design for the 2012 Sunset Idea House in Healdsburg.  Blu Homes has built a series of prefabs throughout the wine country, including several in Healdsburg, Sonoma, Sebastopol, Cloverdale, Petaluma, and St. Helena.  Other prefab industry leaders that have made their presence known throughout the North Bay counties are Michelle Kaufmann Studios and Studio 101 Designs, as well as Rocio Romero whose first West Coast prefab (which, by the way, the owners have made available to the public as a vacation rental) made its debut in Pope Valley.

If you have been looking for a home in Sonoma or Napa County, consider purchasing land and building a prefab.  While land is scarce in many parts of Marin and other North Bay counties, the wine country still has lots and acreage for sale.  The prefab process is much simpler - and less time consuming - than custom, onsite construction.  After you have obtained financing and found your land with the assistance of your Wine Country Modern Real Estate Agent, the next step is to meet with your prefab consultant, and choose and personalize a design.  Then sit back.  In a matter of months your home will be built and delivered to the site.  Before you know it you will be moving into your new digs and enjoying the wine country lifestyle.

Contact Wine Country Modern Real Estate for more information about buying land for your prefab or custom home in Sonoma or Napa Country - or for assistance in buying or selling a home or property in the wine country.
