Kithaus from DWR

If you are seeking a modern prefab for quick assembly into a small space then Design Within Reach may have a solution with their 9×13 eco-friendly Kithaus. It’s definitely a luxury item but great inspiration and we sure wouldn’t mind having a backyard retreat like that.

Designed by Tom Sandonato and Martin Wehmann, this 9’x13′ structure redefines conventional prefab with its proprietary clamping system that makes installation quick, economic and practically waste-free. What also caught our attention about Kithaus is how it can tuck into any area, even remote locations, without needing ultra-heavy equipment. All of the lightweight, anodized aluminum pieces are pre-cut and drilled in Southern California and shipped to you for on-site assembly. Installation is fast, taking only a few days, and Kithaus is built with eco-friendly components.
Wondering where you can use Kithaus? How about anywhere you need a fully insulated, pre-wired comfortable space. In addition to the physical structure, DWR offers furnished packages that have been space planned for maximum functionality. The complete Kithaus, including decks, canopies and louvers, is $44,900. (A base model is available for $29,500.)
