It's field trip time! In case you haven't heard, taste monger Josh Spear delivers the reminder on a monthly open house for famed architect Rocio Romero's prefabricated home, situated in Pope Valley (Napa County). Aside from its design, of course, the Romero house differs from other prominent Bay Area prefabs (Dwell, Wired, and Sunset homes, for instance) in it's size—3K square feet, 4 bedrooms, 3 baths—and moreover, its situation on 48 acres of bucolic private land. Oh, and let's not forget the 40 x 20 foot pool.
It gets better: following on the increasing trend of renting one's home for film productions and photo shoots (see Porn Valley, and on the Hollywood side, Shreveport, LA) this home's owners are doing just that. Moving one step beyond prefab evangelicalism, the owners are also offering independent (read, disconnected from the building industry), full-service consulting to those interested in owning a prefab.
