A pre-fabricated home is a house that has been built off-site in a large factory, usually in standardised parts that can be easily assembled (usually within a matter of days or weeks) on-site. There’s myriad reasons to choose a pre-fab house, and plenty of companies that provide the service. We’ve compiled a list of the 6 benefits of a pre-fab house, and a list of 5 of the best pre-fab home companies in Australia.
1. Shorter build times
Pre-fabricated homes are built primarily off-site, then put together in a matter of weeks, which means the build times are shorter.
2. Portable & adaptable
Pre-fabricated homes can be moved and rearranged, as many modular pre-fabricated homes are similar to a jigsaw, in that different parts can be rearranged into different locations.
3. Better on the budget
The budget for a house build can be better managed with a pre-fabricated house, as the built isn’t going to be affected by bad weather or unexpected issues and errors.
4. Reduce waste
Pre-fabricated homes minimise the waste produced by the building process, as they are mostly built in a factory, which means left-over materials from one house can be used in another in the line.
5. Great for remote locations
Pre-fabricated homes can be great for people who choose to live in remote or rugged areas, as there will be minimal disruptions to the environment around the build site.
6. They’re gorgeous
Today’s pre-fabricated homes are often stylish and equipped with the latest technology and sustainable materials.
