Here’s what happens when a custom builder and an interior designer team up to turn a factory-built home into the beach cottage of their dreams.
Prefabricated homes often get a bad rap, but this Gulf Coast cottage is a far cry from a double-wide. Called a “hybrid home,” the 1,476-square-foot house was built entirely off-site and then delivered via truck. “It follows the concept of factory built but is hand assembled,” says homeowner Onno Horn, who shares the Blue Mountain Beach, Florida, home with Jennifer Hunter. The couple are hardly strangers to coastal style. He’s a custom builder, and she’s a designer. So when it came to their own cottage, they decided to start with a stock GreenSteel Homes plan and tweak the design to better fit their lifestyle.
