Prefab portable homes are on the up, and this modern prefab home, from the Spanish architecture firm, ÁBATON, of why they’re increasing in popularity. Called the ÁPH80, it features a minimalist exterior that’s effortlessly beautiful due to it’s simple form.
The material used to create that seamless grey-tiled exterior is actually wood fibre cement board. “What?! Cement board roofing?” Yup. That’s what I thought too, but ÁBATON actually got back to me on that one after I left a comment on the TreeHugger article:
“Cement board works extremely well for outdoors. We have been using it for years in many of our projects and it consists of wood mixed with cement so the house could last at least, 50 years.”
