PREFAB - DIY ( DO IT YOURSELF ) NOTES

Prefab housing packages include kits for do-it-yourselfers, but frequently contractors complete a prefab house on the building site. So if you find a style you like, you can either complete it yourself or hire someone to complete the project for you.

Prefab houses are a great way for a beginner or someone with budget constraints to get started on a tiny house. A book usually comes with plans and instructions to complete a project with common building materials.

Two popular types of prefab homes are modular homes and panelized homes. Both of these methods produce traditional styles of houses. Finish work usually including drywall and trim is completed after the main structure is assembled and passes inspection. In most places, prefab houses must be approved by a local building inspector while the plumbing and wiring is still visible in the walls and after the house is finished.

Putting together a modular home is a bit like stacking toy building block, but more complicated. Depending on the design of the home and the distance from the manufacturer to the building site, each block may be an entire house, a room, groups of rooms or only a portion of a room.Both interior and exterior walls of panelized homes are built in sections or panels prior to delivery to the home site. Sometimes, siding has already been added at the manufacturing plant, but usually it's installed after the shell of the house is assembled.

It is quite simple to pick out the home of your dreams with prefab housing. With infinite earth sheltered designs prefab homes are constructed with high strength modules. Once the concrete pad is ready the vaulted structures can be erected without heavy equipment or highly skilled craftsmen. Modules are designed, water tight when bolted and glued together. Ribs engineered into the modules add strength and allow routing of electrical and other utilities.

Prefabs are growing greener and cheaper as people realize that modular pieces are not just a great way to save money and improve the planet, but also put design back in the hands of the masses. Whether or not real kits are produced made and available for sale from this seed of a design, the commercial green house industry has much it could learn from such examples.
