With plenty of other pre-fab home designs out there already, Zamore Homes has set themselves apart not only with their Southern region styled shotgun homes, but also with the allure of quicker and more affordable on-site construction. The 400 to 2,200 square foot designs can be constructed quicker and for about $100 to $170 per square foot, depending upon design with a different approach to pre-fab assembly...
Zamore Homes deviates from the typical pre-fab construction process by contracting out all the assembly to local resources such as IKEA and Sears near the building site, instead of hauling/shipping materials across country. With gas prices and tight budgets all across the country, the cost cutting move might be a good move on Zamore's part. And we certainly wouldn't mind the Southern style architecture with it's temperature soothing design here in LA. Now if they could only reduce the price of the land itself here, we'd be living in pre-fab comforts!
