it appears that Prefabricated Houses are being used increasingly in
applications other than commercial construction. It used to be that
"prefab" meant cheap, because in its original applications decades
ago, probably the primary attraction of these types of buildings was that they
could be put up very inexpensively.
surprisingly, in the decades since, architects from all over the world have
been drawn to the economical aspect of prefab and also challenged by its
inherent constraints. After all, if prefabricated construction is cheaper, one
can certainly use one's creativity to compensate for the restrictions in
materials usage and construction techniques which make on-site customization
difficult or impossible.
not really that simple, regardless of how much creativity with which one is
endowed. And yet advances in materials and modern design techniques such as the
use of CAD software, coupled with ever increasing awareness of the scarcity of
our natural resources, and the ever-economical premise upon which construction
of prefabricated buildings rests, seem to have lead to an increasing interest
in prefabricated structures from architects and home buyers alike.
the development of technology, it's a pleasure to see prefab panels that, once
assembled, are as sturdy as walls constructed on-site, while produced for a
much lower cost. In fact, part of the pleasure of a well-designed prefabricated
building is that it is absolutely as attractive as its more expensive
counterpart despite its lower cost.
if you have a piece of land upon which you're preparing to build, there's no
excuse not to take a look at your prefabricated options as they stand today. Maybe
you are intent upon building the most environmentally friendly, energy
efficient home that you possibly can. Maybe you're tempted by the notion of
living "off the grid". In either case prefab offers options that
might very well be too attractive to resist.
even if your building intentions are more conventional, you might find yourself
swayed by the economy and often breathtaking designs to be found in
prefabricated, modular construction. It's a new day, and homes built in this
way are more compelling than ever.
that the popularity of prefabricated structures is on the rise. If you're
planning to build a home, you owe it to yourself to look seriously at
prefabricated houses, because as a building option they are more attractive,
cost effective, Eco-friendly than ever.
