Share |

Small prefabricated buildings are becoming more popular as people are seeking to add some living or working space to their homes. A prefabricated building is constructed in modules and panels that can be easily shipped to the site and assembled rather than built on site. Some of such houses can be mobile but mostly they are set on foundation just like regular houses.

There are quite a few advantages of a prefabricated house such as less time used for construction, customizable, better quality control, less waste.
