Modscape creates beautifully simplistic prefabricated homes. The Cliff House by Modscape ($TBA) is their latest concept and it's absolutely breathtaking. The home was created as a vacation getaway and as a complete extension of the natural environment. It has five levels, where by the occupants would enter from the car port on the top level and work their way down each level. Top level 5 is the car port, level 4 is made up the main living area which includes the foyer, living room, dining room and kitchen, level 3 features two bedrooms and a bath, level 2 includes the master bed and bath, and the lowest level features the spa and barbecue areas. I just wonder what cliff side real estate is going for these days?

The incredible three-in-one vehicle from Gibbs Amphitrucks ($CALL) of England can go from the street to off-road, to river-runner mode with just one simple push of a button! Imagine driving down the highway, hitting traffic and taking it off-road for some fun! Or why not pop down the river and avoid the traffic altogether. Capable of keeping up with highway traffic, cruising along the water at 30mph and carrying up to 7 lucky passengers.
I love minimal homes. The Montebar Villa ($NFS) is a perfect representation of pre-fab and minimal done right. The Montebar is a prefabricated wood house situated facing the Swiss Alps. JM say, "a privileged position with sunlight during the four seasons. A magical place where the silence is alternated with the gentle chimes of cows at pasture in the distance." Sounds like heaven. Local building codes dictated that every home must have a dark gray pitched roof. Based on this requirement, they designed cladding that also matched the roof creating a homogeneous design with a monolithic aspect. The interior of the home features a main living area, three bedrooms, a study, two baths, a laundry room, technical room, pantry, and storage areas. The two kids bedrooms are double height with lofts that house beds and TVs.
