Alchemy Architects | weeHouse "modules"

A little brief about the Alchemy Architects :

Founder Geoffrey Warner and team at Alchemy create prefab modular homes based on weeHouse "modules". Alchemy created the first weeHouse in 2003 and since has developed a flexible system of employing modules alone or in combination with other modules or "companions" to create a spectrum of flexible, prefabricated homes.

The first weeHouse was a small cabin. Since then, Alchemy has been doing more and more larger homes (called "Not-So Wee Houses") aimed at family living. Even though they're larger, the not-so weeHouses show respectful self-restraint. These are not McMansions.

Alchemy gives their weeHouses beautifully clean and elegant interior finishes. You can choose from some great options like bamboo flooring, gorgeous Henrybuilt kitchen cabinetry, efficient LG appliances, and even tankless water heaters.
