The price savings in the construction of prefab homes is used to compensate for the higher cost of energy-saving and water-conserving technologies or of integrating energy-producing technologies like solar panels into the homes.

Supporters of prefab homes believe that housing built in a factory, trucked to a building site and its modules lifted into place by a crane not only makes economic sense, it makes environmental sense, too. There is conclusive evidence that prefab homes are inherently more sustainable than site-built housing.

Very little material in the construction facility goes to waste. Unused strips of sheetrock are typically saved to reinforce the seams of walls. Lumber left over from creating wall studs and floor joists is re-cut for other purposes. The smallest pieces of wood, copper and vinyl are recycled. The sawdust can even be given to a local farmer for animal bedding.

The price savings in the construction of prefab homes is used to compensate for the higher cost of energy-saving and water-conserving technologies or of integrating energy-producing technologies like solar panels into the homes.

The prefab home industry also tends to build smaller & it is considered as a green advantage. It is also a logistical advantage. Most prefab homes are trucked in pieces to their installation site on a flatbed that measures 8 ½ feet.

Every home buyer has different values and buying a sustainable home adds an extra layer of values to assess. Any green home buyer should appreciate that prefab homes are a very environmentally sustainable option.
