I'm researching prefab homes because we're brainstorming having some nice, custom modular homes. Some are being built and marketed as retro or modern. My investor was going to have an "IKEA" decor, especially in kitchens and baths.
Anyone doing this already or have an opinion? It seems like there is a market for this, but gauging interest.
I actually met a guy the other day who has a patent on a prefab home with a slab. I haven't seen it but my partner has.
Send me a PM if you want and I'll send you they guy's name and contact info.

I am also interested in a modular home in Austin, TX. I need to keep costs super low.
