Default prefabricated housing

What do we all think about prefab housing - has anyone looked at the Roscia Romero steel houses? They are pricey, but at least from the catalogues, they are amazing. Has anyone seen anything comparable?

The Rocio (sic) Romero homes are incredible, at least from the design - I looked into getting one, but they are NOT cheap - I don't know anything quite the same, unless you try to build one yourself.

Actually, the Japanese are doing some interesting things with steel prefab homes, especially in earthquake zones - anyone seen anything on them? I don't recall a brand name, but I saw one being delivered and installed on a PBS show a few years ago.
