Looking to buy a modular or pre-fab house and shocked at the price per square foot, usually around $200-$250? Would you be interested to know that you can still build houses for less than $60 a square foot? Well Urs Peter Flueckiger has something to show you in Texas.
Flueckiger has built a house using Corrugated Steel and other industrial materials.
to prove that it was possible to create an affordable, durable house that was beautiful and interesting to live in. He began envisioning his design as an alternative to modernist prefabs, many of which sell for about $250 a square foot. Mr. Flueckiger knew he could design a family home for considerably less, without compromising the design.
As it turns out a lot of compromises were made along the way, but they did it and saved a significant sum. Now they have a beautiful functional living space that rivals anything you can get for $250 a square foot.
