There’s just something stylish about modular homes! This is why so many design enthusiasts are turning to prefab houses for their living space dilemmas. These interesting dwellings are assembled in a factory, and then shipped in pieces to the destination of choice, where final construction ensues.
When it comes to modern design, nothing beats the price of a modular home. With lower building costs and a faster turnaround time, these prefab houses can at times be customized so you get exactly what you want!
WHAT IS A MODULAR HOME?
Modular homes are homes which are built off-site in pieces, then assembled on site, on top of foundations, by your chosen builder, to form a modular house. They look just like normal homes.
HOW IS MODULAR HOMES DIFFERENT?
Because modular homes are built indoors, they can be completed in a matter of a few weeks, as opposed to months. They don’t see the typical on-site delays caused predominantly by the weather.
DOES IT HAS THE SAME VALUE?
Modular homes appraise the same as their on-site built counterparts do; they do not depreciate in value. Modular homes can be built for accessible living and designed for future conveniences.
HOW MUCH DOES A MODULAR HOME COST?
It all depends on how big or small it is, and the design and style. However, they are usually less expensive than your traditional on-site built home, per square foot. Each build is different, so make sure you’ve done your research before you dive into it.
ARE MODULAR HOME ENVIRONTMENTAL FRIENDLY?
Modular homes are really energy efficient in comparison to a lot of traditionally built homes. If you are environmentally conscious, this might be a consideration for you, as any energy which can be saved is a huge plus for the environment.
DO ALL MODULAR HOMES LOOK ALIKE?
Not at all. One modular home design looks very different from the next. You can create any style of modular home you wish, whether you want a traditional center-hall colonial or a Mediterranean.
WHAT IF YOU DON’T HAVE MUCH SPACE?
Never fear! Modular homes are perfect if you don’t have much room to play with. With a bit of clever design, you’ll be able to create a home with a well thought out space.
HOW CAN YOU RECOGNIZE A MODULAR HOME?
Every modular home should have a small metal tag on the outside of each section, or in kitchen cabinets and bedroom closets. The tags also include the manufacturing date.
WHAT’S BENEFITS OF OWNING MODULAR HOME?
Modular homes can be more affordable than site-built homes. Home inspections are not needed, as these are all done in the factory. And they’re also energy efficient and environmentally friendly. As with any home, modular homes can be expanded also.
Prefab housing is becoming increasingly popular, thanks to a growing number of home builders entering the field. As public interest in modular housing grows, expect to see even more options, hopefully at continued affordable rates. See anything you like above? These homes remind us that less is more, and that having more style for less cost is a delightful reality!
