A Green-Roofed Hobbit Prefab Home

This is actually pretty cool in the right setting.  Not sure we'll see any of these in San Francisco anytime soon.  The only place I can picture them is somewhere in the Presidio or on Treasure Island.  Then again, The SF planning department would have to insist they be "stacked" to meet the density factor, and they would probably insist they be built near a transit corridor.  That would kill it right there. ;)

Thanks for sharing that video! We have houses built into the side of the mountains here, and real homes in Manitou Springs that are covered with earth. Great concept.

Those are pretty neat! I would love to stay in one for a visit (like if a hotel was made of those) but I wouldn't care to live in one. I like lots of windows!

Prefab still makes up a relatively small supply of housing. Around 15, 000 homes are built using modular methods each year, making up about 1.5% of housing.

And I agree, it is hard to imagine the house you posted in my hood too, though I saw some Topanga houses that are build using quite similar ideas.
