Prefab

Prefab, or prefabricated homes, have made a resurgence as a dwelling style over the last few years. During the first half of the twentieth century, one could order a home from the Sears and Roebuck Catalog and have a kit shipped by train, but now prefab homes are far easier to come by. Modern kits are ideal for smaller lots and have become an eco-friendly – and affordable – option for someone looking for a highly efficient new construction dwelling.

As the name indicates, prefab homes are primarily constructed off-site in pieces or portions, and then fully assembled on the lot itself. Prefab homes come in a wide variety of styles, from backyard cottages to modern, single-family homes.
