Home additions are usually reserved for those who have the time, money and patience for a massive overhaul. But Modern Cabana, a San Francisco based company that makes prefab homes, is transforming this huge project into something a little simpler, and more importantly, wallet-friendly. This structure, dubbed the modern cottage, consists of a guest suite and office that the main home didnt have space for. In between the main house and the prefab addition is a semi-covered TimberTech deck perfect for outdoor dinner parties. This vertical garden by Grubb Gardens actually turns the plant life into an intriguing and complex work of art. Adding to the functional design of the building is an outdoor shower area perfect for cooling off on those hot summer days. The metal details, inspired by architect Miles van der Rohe, serve as the perfect contrast to the surrounding wood. The convertible CB2 Flex Sofa allows the guestroom to serve double-duty as a sitting room. Bamboo floors by Armstrong keep the room airy, light and connected to the serenity of the outdoors. And for guests that plan on staying for awhile: a small, stylish kitchen, complete with compact appliances. The office space stays in tune with the fun, relaxing vibe apparent throughout the rest of the prefab, with simple furniture choices and carefully placed knickknacks. And hows this for creative design? The desktop is actually a door covered with frosted glass. If space is what this San Francisco home needed, they certainly took care of that with this fabulous prefab.
