First thing first, what is a prefab home? Well, another term for prefabricated homes is “factory-built homes.” This second term might shed more light on what a prefab home really is: a home built and designed in an off-site facility and then transported to the site for assembly and finishing. Prefabricated homes are brought to their final site about 90% already done.

Why Are Prefabricated Homes More Affordable?
Factory-built homes are more affordable because they are more efficient. Let us explain. Having the luxury of building homes in a climate-controlled facility means a lot of great things. One of those means being able to pre-plan and pre-buy materials according to what we know we will build each day. This means fewer materials are wasted because we can allot what we buy to our standard building output. Also, using a skilled labor force means workers are assembled efficiently as well. This means multiple homes are finished in our building facilities every day!
