Prefabricated homes are houses that are built off-site then are transported to the home’s location. For large prefabricated homes, they are often transported in sections that are quickly and easily then joined on-site. This method of construction allows homes to be built more cost effectively as well as cutting construction time due to less delays, often due to weather, that often occurs when building homes on-site.
Prefabricated Home Features
Prefabricated homes generally have the same features as regular homes built on-site, so you don’t need to worry that you won’t be able to have that entertaining, kitchen or bathroom you wanted. There are a wide range of available building materials, interior fixtures and homes styles for you to choose from and custom design. The only thing you have to bear in mind, when choosing a prefabricated home, is the location and/or land requirements, such as a your home requiring stilts or land levelling.
Due to the fact that prefab homes are generally built off-site, construction periods are noticeably shorter. Off-site built homes are protected from the weather and thus aren’t delayed. Building equipment and materials are also more readily available and easily delivered to the construction site. This is also important especially if a home location is remote, thus equipment and materials would need to be transported a greater distance delaying construction. Construction times can be as little as 8-10 weeks depending on the style of home that is being built, whereas on-site built homes often take a lot longer.
