As I was searching for modular houses, I went into daydreaming mode. The possibilities and facades of these homes are simply put – endless. You can easily get lost between timelessly designed residences with different sizes, shapes placed in the most adventurous environments.
But the attractiveness of these houses is just a cherry on the top. The benefits of these modular buildings are numerous.
First and foremost is off-site construction. Modular building in manufacturing plants is the key to many other benefits resulting from off-site construction like:
Quality control of the construction process
Since it is an indoor process, building materials are protected because of the controlled climate in plants. But not only are the materials protected, but workers are also. They work in a safe environment where risks of getting injured at the job site are reduced to a minimum.
Environmental benefits – my favorite part and where to start
Modular construction facilities use less energy compared to traditional constructing because of the streamlined process. Waste is not discarded, but on the contrary, it is recycled, which really helps decrease landfills. Not only that but carbon emission is minimized by reducing truck movements. Besides using eco-friendly materials, many manufacturers also offer smart and green technology: solar panels, wind turbines or rain collectors, and photovoltaics, among others.
Faster build time
Furthermore, it is estimated that modular projects can save up to 30-50% of construction time. Weather delays are no longer a problem since it is an indoor process but also a simultaneous one where foundations are built at the same time as the modules.
As mentioned above, by decreasing build time, using less labour, having less waste, and a controlled production process, it becomes an affordable option for many looking for a comfortable place to live.
And now, let’s move from practical aspects to more the imaginative side of prefab houses.
Modern with refined interiors, offering a range of customization options
Manufacturers usually provide pleasant living environments with an abundance of natural light and modern solutions in your interior. The best part is you can get your perfect home in the location of your choice. They can be installed anywhere from a meadow to a forest. You can enjoy the nature surrounding you in some breathtaking areas.
Suppose all this hasn’t persuaded you to enter the adventure of prefab houses; may I suggest looking online for some of the most spectacular designs and stunning locations of these homes?
