Method Homes and the Monogram Modern Home

Written by Brian Abramson, co-founder of Method Homes

Method Homes is a modern prefab builder based out of Seattle that focuses on well-designed, sustainable homes that are built offsite with a high level of craftsmanship and architectural detailing.

We were thrilled to receive a call from Dwell discussing the possibility of building the Modern Monogram Home. As these things tend to materialize quickly, the timeline for design and construction was extremely tight. The Method, Dwell and Monogram teams worked in conjunction with the architects at Chris Pardo Design: Elemental Architecture to turn around a a fully engineered design and specifications over the course of several weeks instead of the months it would normally take. This is a testimony to the shared vision for the home and the design sensibility of the whole team.

It is important for Method Homes to remain innovative in the home-building space. The collaboration with Monogram enabled us to focus on innovation by using state of the art appliances, a commercial double wall siding system, accordion doors and expansive window and door packages, and by designing a home that could withstand travel and multiple installations.

Method Homes learned a lot about the logistics of a multi-city tour through the Monogram Modern Home experience and it was gratifying to see the reactions of all that visited in every city. The feedback we received is that visitors were impressed with the quality and materials in the home. We were pleased to see the home looking none the worse for all the travel when it got to it’s final tour stop in Boston. The home held up remarkably well and looked as new as when it left our plant months earlier.
