Modern Prefab Homes
Today home buyers can choose from several different types of modern prefab homes. The first type of modern prefab home is the manufactured home. Today’s manufactured home is much different from the mobile homes of the last century. Modern manufactured homes are built to specifications that exceed those used in site-built homes. This is because they have to withstand transportation from the manufacturer to the building site. Modern manufactured homes come in many varieties including single wide, double wide, triple wide and even multi-story models. This type of modern prefab home is a good option for people who need to rent their lot, for people who don’t need to customize their home, and for people who are on a tight housing budget. This option is not a good option for people who live in a community with restrictive covenants.
The second type of modern prefab homes that you can buy is the panelized home. Panelized homes are a great option for people who want to build a custom home, but who need to keep their construction budget under control. Panelized homes are built from factory built wall panels. People select the panels that they need to build their custom home, the panels are made in the factory, the panels are delivered to the building site, and the home is constructed. This option is great for people who are interested in building a custom home, who are on a tight budget, and who are adding on to their homes. This option is not a good option for people who expect their home to be delivered already constructed.
The third type of modern prefab homes that you can buy is the prefab log home. This option is great for people who want to build a log home. To buy a prefab log home you will need to look at floor plans offered by a prefab log home manufacturer, select the shell that you are interested in, hire a contractor to put your home together, and then wait for your shell to be delivered. This option is great for log home lovers, however, this prefab home option takes a few more construction steps then your other options do so you really need to understand the prefab log home construction process before you buy your log home shell.
