Ever since Nick Allen posted the comment below earlier today I’ve been obsessed with the concept of turning ISA’s “Core” concept in their design into a prefab element.
While we gave up on prefabbing entire homes long ago due to cost and the constraints of Philly’s narrow infill lots, there could be something to the combination of SIPs and locally prefabbed “ISA Cores” that could be “dropped” into the shell of a house to expedite the construction timeline.
Check out the links in Nick’s comment below for examples of this concept in practice.

Kitchen/Bathroom I think the kitchen/bathroom pod is a great solution. Prefabbing would be good too.I thought these might be of use, some old links I had about kitchen/bathroom pods:
and star endorsements too: Jade uses them in her apartments…..http://www.jadenyc.com
It’s an idea that is certainly worthy of consideration…
