Want a newly built home within a matter of months? It’s no surprise prefab and factory-built housing is growing in popularity among B.C. buyers
Perhaps your dream home is a water- view property with lofty interiors that stretch outdoors. Or maybe it’s a tiny forest retreat, or contemporary single- family home with vaulted ceilings, complete with a large backyard and deck that beckon for lazy afternoons in reclining chairs.
Gone are the traffic jams and endless to-do lists.
But wait—cue the record scratch—what if your dream home hasn’t yet been built? Or, more likely, what if it’s out of your price range?
Factory-built housing may be the answer. Today, a buyer can order a home, tweak design elements to their tastes and have it installed in as little as three months.
The only difference from on-site, frame-construction houses is that these are built in a factory and shipped to the building location. By being built indoors, there are no delays due to weather, and components are fabricated to size. Today’s designs are highly energy- efficient and costs can range from entry level to luxury.
Designs span everything from custom prefabricated and stylish modular homes, to prefab log homes, tiny homes and even upcycled shipping container homes.
