The grandson of esteemed American architect Frank Lloyd Wright and his wife have opted to build a prefab Blu Balance home in Wisconsin, near the site of Wright's famed studio and estate, Taliesen East.
The Balance home features soaring ceilings, expansive windows and walls of sliding glass doors, all of which allow for views of the surrounding 112 acres of prairie landscape, which inspired Frank Lloyd Wright, and now continues to inspire students at the nearby school of architecture.
The Wright's explain their rational for selecting their prefabricated home: “it’s a beautifully crafted house, and it’s so reassuring to know that the person designing your house is also manufacturing it, and is going to deliver it with a crew of talented people who will put it up on site. In addition, it was enormously stress relieving to know in advance what the home would cost".

Why do so many Americans live in mobile homes?
