Prefab House is Under Way

A prefab
house is shortened name for a prefabricated house, which is a home that has
components manufactured in an off-site industrial facility. They are sometimes
referred to as factory-made or modular homes, although there are some
differences. In this type of house, the walls and wall units are made in a
factory, whereas modular homes have entire sections of the house build off
site. By manufacturing the parts of the house off site, waste is reduced and
less time and energy are expended during construction. In addition, the slab
put in for a prefab house is much easier to arrange than the foundation of a
traditional home.

The
benefits of buying a prefab house include ease of mobility, speedy
construction, and fewer expenses. These houses are usually less expensive to
build and can be put up in only a few days, complete with wiring, heating, and
plumbing. The only thing buyers must provide is a plot of land on which to put
the house.

The history
of the prefab house goes back to the birth of America. Many of those escaping
religious persecution in England took apart their homes before they left and
brought them over on the boat to be reassembled in the new land. During the
gold rush of the 1840s and 1850s, house kits were shipped to prospectors in
California. In the early 20th century, mail-order prefab homes were shipped to
people all over the country in thousands of pieces. Owners could put the houses
together themselves, like a giant puzzle, with each piece numbered.

Prefab
housing has advanced considerably since then, but the basic idea remains the
same. Prefab home manufacturers usually offer a variety of different floor
plans, but many will work with buyers to create unique designs. Walls and wall
sections are built off site, which allows them to be made under controlled
conditions. The pieces are then shipped to the building site, where the home is
assembled. It still takes time and effort to assemble a prefab house, but
usually considerably less than a comparable stick-built home.

The modern
prefab house is often crafted to appeal to futuristic aesthetics. The newer,
upper-tier prefab houses look just as well-constructed as a traditional home
built with studs. Now, more than half of all the homes built in the United
States use at least partial prefab materials. So there really has a bright
future for prefab container homes.
