The Philadelphia Inquirer published an article about modern prefab in the 3Feb06 realestate section.



In an article titled "Modern modular: Ticky-tacky no more" Inquirer writer Alan Heavens describes a modern house in New York state:

"On a lot in Wilton, Conn., a suburb of New York City, architect Douglas Cutler has turned six boxes into a 3,200-square-foot house that is, in his words, "very much out of the box."

Those six boxes were modules, built in a factory to Cutler's design specifications, then transported to and assembled at the building site, which is hemmed in by a cliff and a huge front yard. Then, using a more conventional construction approach, Cutler built a glass enclosure that he connected to the modular wings - all joined by the blue metal railings that are a design feature of the house."
