This just in. While we don't know quite how this relates to apartments directly, we consider it important to stay abreast of what is going on in small home design, if only for people to dream about cheap country home options. Edgar Blazona, of Modular Dwellings, announces that he is now starting the construction on the MD 280. This 280 square foot unit will come complete with all the essentials. It will be pre-wired, pre-plumbed and ready to plug in just about anywhere. This building will bolt together in three large parts, and can be trucked to any location near you. With the help of a small crane, it can be lifted into to place and assembled in one day. Although I haven't quite worked out all of the details yet, I can tell you that this dwelling will feature top of the line appliances, hot water on demand, superb flooring and best of all.. the MD 280 will be the first modern PRE FAB building to be auctioned off on the almighty eBay.
