These days, there are many modular construction options available that are green, beautiful, well-made, and often lower-cost. Modular homes can be homes or cabins/cottages, modular additions, a backyard studios, offices, or in-law house.
Modular homes come in a wide range of sizes, from one bedroom spaces and small units to larger sized homes. They are also available in a wide variety of styles from traditional designs to modern to completely custom designed. Most of the modular floor plans can be modified or customized.
Prefab (factory-built) homes have many benefits. They can be built more efficiently (e.g., less material waste), more quickly, with more precision and durability (i.e., higher quality), and they typically have more predictable costs (and often cost less) than site-built homes.
The levels of greenness vary among the following options, but all of them tout some green features.
