Prefab houses, also known as pre-assembled prefabs or simply pre-manufactured homes, are custom-house forms of prefab construction, which are designed and constructed off-site in advance from standard, pre-manufactured parts that are easy to ship and assemble. Prefab homes are built in a factory with skilled labor on site and pre-assembled units are shipped and installed by the homeowner. The entire assembly process is completed in a very short time, thus the name ‘pre-assembled’.
7 Great PREFAB HOMES
Prefab houses have a number of advantages over conventional home construction, including: more energy-efficient, flexible in size, and modular in construction. As well as the ease with which they are built and shipped, prefab kits include everything needed to complete a house, including windows, doors, walls, roofs, plumbing, heating and electrical systems, windows, appliances, landscaping tools, pool or hot tub, garage, attic, mechanical and electrical systems. The prefab kits are sold in small quantities so that you can choose one of these options for your home. You may even find one or two that you really like and build it yourself, as long as you have adequate skills.
In addition to the advantage of having an easier time building, prefab homes are usually less costly than a traditional home. It’s also better for the environment. Prefab homes can be shipped directly to you, saving you lots of money on shipping and delivery.
