ValleyWag, a self-described Silicon Valley tech gossip site (yeah, not sure how I ended up there) recently posted on a Santa Cruz Sentinel story discussing billionaire Phillipe Kahn's (current CEO of Fullpower Technologies) move to a new Marmol Radzinger prefab located on Kahn's Santa Cruz property. The cost of the new 3,200 square foot eco-friendly prefab is pegged between $300,000 and $1 million dollars.
If you stop and think about this, it's kind of amazing that someone with that much money and power didn't opt for a 14,000 square foot Mega-McMansion--instead choosing a much more humble abode. While I have to disagree with the blogger's characterization of calling Mr. Kahn "eco-trailer trash", I do agree that going Usonian would have been an even more exciting modest-home solution...but, to each their own!
