As prefabricated home companies proliferate, so do your choices for customizable, sustainable homes in an array of prices and sizes.
If “factory-made home” makes you think “cookie-cutter,” you might want to take a second look. Today’s prefabs can be configured to meet any needs, whether it’s small square footage or an affordable price. You can order a prefab as small as 300 square feet for $50,000 or less, or you can customize a more luxurious home.
From design to construction, prefabs often offer an inexpensive, easy way to build green. Most prefabs are designed and assembled using low- or zero-waste methods, and many employ green building materials. Some companies, such as Studio 101 Designs, offer homes eligible for LEED or other green certification.
