What's on deck: come tour a modern prefab house.

Every May for the past six years, we've opened the doors to Sunset's headquarters for Celebration Weekend, inviting the public to enjoy two days of great food and wine, take testkitchen tours, and watch presentations by staff experts. With more than 20,000 visitors that weekend, we always make sure to have something new here. This year, senior Home writer Peter O. Whiteley is working on a deck he designed to adjoin a modular home called the Glidehouse. With its progressive design and attention to green living, the home could spark a major housing trend. Currently being fabricated by Construction Resource Group in Agassiz, British Columbia, the house will be trucked down to Sunset and assembled for tours. Peter's deck will nearly double the living space. It features composite wood decking, fireplaces, a barbecue center, and built-in benches.
