You Ever Wanted to Stay in a Seaside Cabin?

Cabins September 20, 2016

Seaside Cabin

When it comes to prefab homes and where they can be situated (they’re easy to place, so they can be situated almost anywhere), this modular home on the coast might weigh in on the ocean ledger on the old “Do you prefer to live on the ocean or in the mountains?” question.

What do you think of this small-ish, simple prefabricated house, hanging over the stacked stone wall above the Steigen Archipelago (the Barents Sea), Norway. Actually, this is a resort, the Manshausen Island Resort, so these places can be rented, but obviously you can build this prefab design for your house.

The designers for these prefab houses is Stinessen Arkitektur, and they’re purposed as holiday cabins. Like a lot of modern prefab architecture, these ones are designed with a consideration for minimal environmental footprints.

Part of that is the prefab house building material: mostly wood. The wood used for these modular cabins is Larch, and there are two layers to the building, plus, glued to the outside of the building, that full-height window section you see.

Like several other prefab houses we’ve featured here, these ones also have cantilever design. They hang over the sea. Those stones you see piled up in the picture above are from a historic stone quay that was there before.

To see more work from Stinessen Arkitektur, find them at our Prefab Home Designers and Builders directory (click here).
