Benefits of Prefab Housing
There are many reasons why prefab housing is a great choice regardless of the size or customizations you’d like for your future home. Here are some key benefits…
Building with prefab methods is much more economical then traditionally built homes. When a traditionally built house is constructed it’s done on site. This means that workers need to travel there, specialized equipment needs to be transported there and problems such as material delivery, weather conditions, etc. need to be contended with. Because of these reasons a traditionally built house is far more expensive even if it’s build with the same wood framing as a prefab house. Prefab housing is built in factories so workers can stay in one place with stationary specialized equipment and a guaranteed stock of all the necessary things required for construction. This allows them to keep costs down when compared to traditional on-site construction.
Most prefab housing options these days are incredibly energy efficient since they’re able to better insulate panels then an on-site worker can. When you’re onsite you often end up with insulation which is jaggedly cut to size leaving gaps. Prefab homes though often have insulation cut by machines for a precise fit leaving no gaps for the cold or heat to seep through.
Unless you’re working with your own team of engineers and architects you’re pretty much stuck with whatever house design the builder wants to make for you (unless of course, you have money to burn). With prefabricated modular housing however you can easily select different modules to customize the house to your liking.
Perfect for Remote Locations
It’s often difficult if not impossible to build a house in remote locations since materials are hard to come by and skilled tradesmen are even more scarce. This makes prefab housing an ideal solution since the entire house can be created off-site then trucked to the final location and easily assembled by a much smaller team then would otherwise be needed. You also skip the step of having to truck in raw materials and specialized equipment.
Building a house from scratch is an incredibly difficult task. Taking on a project of this magnitude often involves foremen, coordinators, engineers, architects, and a variety of specialized tradespeople. By having the components of your house manufactured before you get to the site, you’re simplifying the process immensely and leaving most of the construction in the hands of a factory of experts who know what they’re doing.
Many of these prefab options are able to be disassembled even after the house is constructed. If you’ve ever had to re-locate but have hated the idea of leaving your dream home behind, then a prefab house is definitely for you.
Affordable Alternative Housing Options
The cost of building a new home can quickly skyrocket, usually because of the labor costs and the need for specialized equipment to build the home from the ground up. Why pay more than you need to?
The vast majority of those costs are eliminated when you build a prefab home. The reason you can save so much money is that the individual parts of the home are built off-site with efficient factory construction. They're then shipped to your location and pieced together like a giant jigsaw puzzle so you save on labor.
It also helps that recycled materials are often used in the building of prefab homes, with old shipping containers included on that list.
Changing the Way in Which We Live
The housing market goes through fluctuations in pricing and mortgage rates, but the style of homes has remained unchanged for quite some time. People tend to think of family home, condo, or apartment when looking for a place to live, which means they are missing out on a great, affordable housing option that is available to them.
Prefab homes are beginning to come into the picture a lot more clearly nowadays, with people realizing that it’s a great way to get a home of their own without having to invest a fortune. This is why industry insiders are now considering prefab homes as the housing option of the future.
If you listen to the housing experts, then it’s time to start re-thinking everything you know about housing. People have often thought of prefab homes as nothing more than a mobile home option, but it’s far more than just that now.
Prefab homes now come in all different shapes, styles, and sizes, but it’s their affordability that is catching the eye of potential new homeowners. People are quickly beginning to understand that it is possible to build the home that you really want, without having to shell over a small fortune to people that actually bring very little to the process.
People often believe that paying less for something means settling for lesser quality. What they fail to understand is that much of the cost that you pay goes towards labor and transportation, as well as the materials used.
When you build a home, a good chunk of what you pay ends up going to contractors, architects and the labor costs involved in the building. Those costs pretty much vanish when you decide to build a prefab home as opposed to a traditional brick and mortar building. The quality remains very much the same, but the handouts to the middle man are taken away to save costs.
