What if you have a modular cabin house that provides not only a space to live but a place for relaxation and comfort in a natural recreational setting? It must be perfect! With this kind of modular building, you will create bountiful happy memories with your loved ones each passing day. Your guests will also be fascinated with your incredible prefab abode. What a beautiful sweet modular home!

A family matron counted on a good architect, a creative interior designer, a reputable builder, and an experienced landscape architect to actualize her idea for a pocket-sized, discreet lakeside hideaway prefab.

The couple, Sandy and Dudley Youman, acquired the narrow Lake Austin waterside in 1970’s. This property has 5 heavily wooded lands with 120 feet of lake frontage. Actually, for many years the buildings constructed on this property were only a run-down cottage and a vessel dock. But a thought came in to Sandy and she sought for a modest family-style change room that is wedded to the land. An Austin architect Jared Haas of Un.Box Studio designed the house. Amazingly, the outcome is a humble micro house that packs manifold purposes and her 5 grandchildren fit into a one room of a 480-square-foot structure.

Initially, Dudley yearned for prefab but architect Haas persuaded them that it is better to build it on the area for the steep land has challenging access points that off-site construction is nearly impossible. Haas also pointed out that they spent one whole year to design the shell and it was a big project that required them to have a strong team work. The collaboration comprises a great interior designer, Herb Schoening, a reputable landscape architect, Tait Moring, and a reliable contractor, the True Build.

This beautiful lakeside house is remarkably magnificent and property owners Dudley and Sandy Youman had a taskforce of watercraft to provide entertainment both for their children and grandchildren. Indeed, modular houses have something incredible to offer that they always end up to be delightful. To see more of Un.Box Studio’s work, find them in the Building Homes and Living directory.
