Prefab Homes have evolved dramatically from the Sears catalog. A new generation of architects and home buyers has created a prefab industry that is based on imagination and spirit. A variety of modular homes have emerged that are modern and innovative, challenging all wall panel prefab ideas. These uninteresting boxes can now be transformed into beautiful, affordable homes that you can customize to your liking.
Prefab Houses can refer to any number of building styles. Prefabs are generally built in one place and then shipped to the building site for assembly. There are three types of prefab homes: modular, precut, or panelized, as well as manufactured and mobile.
These homes are manufactured in factories so that the measurements can be accurately taken. This ensures that each home is tightly sealed to conserve energy and help homeowners save money every year. Modern prefab houses meet or exceed the Energy Star standards of the U.S. government. This means that they consume 20% less energy than standard new homes.
Modern customers expect creativity and customization. Prefab building technology has facilitated this trend. Companies are now exploring designs such as solarized floating homes and pod houses.
Prefab houses that are pre-cut or panelized can be assembled by the owner.
Panelized houses can be assembled just like furniture. Each panel comes pre-built with framing and insulation as well as siding. The walls come with pipes for plumbing and electrical wiring that can be easily installed on-site.
