San Francisco’s CleverHomes has created this little one bedroom prefab for those in search of a low maintenance weekend cabin or a guest house for any estranged relatives who might drop in.  The 480 square foot interior design features one bedroom, one bath as well as living, dining and kitchen areas.

The flat roof is great for solar panels, or a green roof or garden.  Siding can be:  reclaimed wood, concrete, metal or stucco.  The Mini also features a 70 square foot deck and bi-fold door.

The CHMini is just one of the many CleverHomes’ designs which typically cost between $200 and $300 per sqare foot depending on the buyer’s choice of finishes, extras and configuration.  CleverHomes estimates that their energy efficient building envelope will save 50% or more on energy costs over a traditional stick-built home.
