Prefab House – Green And Growing

Prefab homes are on the rise and home buyers are taking notice. Prefab houses are built at the factory, disassembled and shipped to the place where they were built. More "prefabs" were bought because people saw that this housing style was much different from some of the poorly built buildings of the past.

The advantages of prefabricated houses are their fast construction and installation, the possibility of "green" materials and construction, and the ability to fit many models on the market today. Prefab homes are definitely an option for homebuyers right now as they are trending, as more and more lenders are starting to include prefab home buying and brokering in their mortgage options.

Prefabs have historically received low marks from lesser building practices because of the low quality, mass-produced buildings that have historically been constructed. Also, prefabs are erroneously associated with RVs, which has its drawbacks.

The prefab house, as the name suggests, was built before being placed on the ground it stands on. Some of the benefits people have mentioned are that factory processes produce less waste, less environmental damage, less overhead from stolen tools and fixtures (which can be left behind when building a traditional house), and less chance of neglected structural failures.
