Jun 14, 2010
Clopay® Avante Collection garage door completes the look of this Dwell Magazine NextHouse built in Hillsborough, North Carolina, near Chapel Hill. In 2004, San Francisco-based Dwell magazine teamed up with residential builder Empyrean International LLC to create an exclusive line of affordable, modern prefabricated homes. The NextHouse features 4,800 square feet of living space on a thirteen-acre lot.

Though prefab, Empyrean's mass production is actually mass customization. Each home is composed of standard parts, and then tweaked to satisfy clients’ tastes. Prices range from $500,000 to $700,000, depending on options and location. To see photos of the finished home, go to
