Pre-fab continues to get better and better, with Details Homes claiming construction costs between $110 and $200 per square foot. The houses, like this one from the Cottage Collection, are a bit different than the modernist pre-fabs we've been seeing: perhaps that's a better fit with a market that seems to strongly prefer (some might say hell-bent on) traditional styles. No matter what the style, you get the advantages of factory construction:
- Less waste better quality control (which means less air infiltration, which means higher energy efficiency)
- faster, lower-risk construction
Houses are also available in neo-Traditional, Craftsman, or Monterey/Spanish styles, and designs can be custom, so a rowhouse development or duplex with granny flat is not out of the question. Can you see a development of homes like these near you?
