Home building kits can provide an attractive alternative for many people interested in do-it-yourself building. Building your own house can be an intimidating project for someone that has little or no experience with construction. It also can be overwhelming for someone already struggling with the pressures of day to day living. Home building kits, or some form of factory prefabrication, offer many advantages worthy of consideration by any owner builder.
Among the advantages of using a kit to build your own house are efficient use of material, quality control, and considerable savings of time involved in construction and the management of the project. Depending on the amount of prefabrication, site work is significantly reduced – after the foundation is finished, a completely prefabricated home can be move-in ready in as little as two weeks.
There are many options for home building kits. Using standard stick built construction methods, prefabrication can be as little as panelizing the structural components (wall, floor, and roof framing) to building a complete modular home in the factory. In addition, home building kits are available that use alternative building methods – primarily post and beam construction, structural insulated panels (SIPs), log home construction, and prefabricated steel framing.
We are working with a few companies to prefabricate custom home designs with green home building options, and can provide a variety of construction options and design features. Please contact us now for our most current information on custom prefabricated options.
