Sheri Koones is a widely respected author who helps readers understand that getting the house of their dreams can be done in an ecologically responsible way. Her books explore the variety, beauty, and eco-friendly benefits of prefab homes. She recently won the prestigious Gold Award in the 2008, Robert Bruss Real Estate Book Awards from NAREE.

Written in an easy to understand and approachable style, author Sheri Koones walks the readers through homes, explaining the materials, strategies, and systems used to create a sustainable living environment. Photographs, captions, floor plans, and sidebars illustrate to readers that green living is not as complicated as one might think, and attainable for everyone. Also included is a resource guide, making her books a hands-on guide for homebuilding.

The book "Prefabulous World" not only shows new and beautiful home design styles but alternative ways to save energy and harness renewable energy. 50 beautiful homes are profiled in the United States, Japan, Germany, France, Australia and many other locations. We can all benefit by sharing technology developed around the world.

The book "Prefabulous + Sustainable" demystifies the prefabricated house by profiling 25 unique homes to showcase how factory-built homes are greener, more efficient, sturdier, and more cost-effective than site-built homes. The book is divided into three categories — green, greener, greenest — and the homes featured vary in style, design, type of construction, and size.

From the Experts:

“A well-designed and built prefab home is a superior and more eco-friendly alternative to the standard way of building. It’s time that more of us were building this way. Sheri is showing us how.”

Sarah Susanka, FAIA, architect and author of
    The Not So Big House series and The Not So Big Life

“Sheri Koones educates readers about the importance of green home-building while offering strategies and solutions, both big and small.”

Nate Kredich, VP, Residential Market Development,
    United States Green Building Council

“Prefabulous and Sustainable will soon become required reading for anyone interested in quality housing for the 21st century.”

Bob Berkebile, Fellow of the American Institute of Architects
