A 12 x 12 foot bedroom is a pretty good sized bedroom, no? Now imagine if that room's dimensions were the dimensions of an entire house. Well, that's the size of James Stuart's Twelve3 prefab home.    He started Twelve3 about a year ago and plans to manufacture homes like his flat-packed and ready for shipping. The buyers would be responsible for assembling the homes. Prices would start at $25K CDN.

The 144 square foot homes will include a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living space. In comparison to other homes in Stuart's native Canada, a Twelve3 home produces about 0.8 tons of CO2 a year versus the 5 tons a 1 bedroom Canadian apartment produces.
