An Inside Look at the Efficient Monogram Modern Prefab


The Monogram Modern Home is continuing its tour across the country. After stops in Portland, Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Austin, it will travel to Dallas on August 21st-22nd and then Boston on September 11th-12th. Needing to feel comfortable in hot climates and withstand lots of foot traffic on the tour, the material choices in the prefab home, designed by Chris Pardo for Method Homes, were extremely important. Here, we break down the key materials in the structure.

The 825-square-foot structure is clad in AL13 aluminum rainscreen siding that can be cut-to-fit on site.
The windows and doors by Western Window Systems are made of insulated glass with thermally broken aluminum frames,...
In the kitchen, a Heath Ceramics backsplash is paired with Smith & Vallee walnut veneer cabients and a Caesarstone...
The wall and floor tile in the bathroom is from Statements Tile.
The structure features blown-in-blanket walls and closed-cell spray foam for insulation.
