Prefab and modular homes have come a very long way.  Times have changed and they are rapidly becoming more popular; especially amongst young individuals who appreciate modern design and homebuyers on a low budget.

Builders are saving so much time by mass-producing these homes, which in turn leaves more time to make the design a priority! A few other reasons these homes are so appealing are that they leave less of a carbon footprint by reducing energy consumption and having less construction waste.  And lets face it, you’re neighbor will be very thankful for not having a loud construction site next door for months.

These homes typically run about $80-$150 per square foot, which is extremely reasonable.  I’m thinking about buying a couple of these myself and placing them around the world for my vacation homes!

Below are websites to some of my favorites. Check them out…
