By Kate Reggev
Construction in a controlled factory setting means these cozy prefab cabins are not only space-efficient, but also carefully built.

Prefabricated homes are known for their high quality of construction and quick build times—but that doesn’t mean that these residences sacrifice on design. Here, we take a look at 13 prefabricated cabins that are modern, sleek, and eco-friendly.

1. Model M by Freedomky

Czech prefab home company Freedomky produces modular, prefabricated cabins that can be added to after initial purchase and construction—perfect for a growing family. Their Model M, the most classic model by Freedomky, is "a beautiful, clean and comfortable living space for a couple, our first 37-square-meter. A magnificent kitchen with a relaxing zone can bear a small party or become a place for recreation."

3. MINIMOD Catuçaba by MAPA

This line of prefabricated homes brings a non-traditional way of building to Brazil by creating prefabricating pieces using a plug-and-play logic so that they can be rearranged and organized. For this variation atop a hill, a cross-form plan was developed to allow views looking out to each of the cardinal directions.
