Prethe-chaletfabricated building is a concept so closely tied with innovation, simplicity and ingenuity that it’s hard to believe it’s been around for hundreds of years. The idea of building parts of a structure largely in one area and bringing it to another to construct has existed throughout history in varying degrees. Their popularity rose and fell dependant on the region, time period and the needs of the community at the time. The contemporary version of the prefab kits we know today date back to the early 1900s, with companies like Sears offering kits complete with all the pieces needed to building your home, from lumber to plumbing to paint, along with detailed instructions on how to complete the home. It was then up to you to take the project on yourself or employ the help of skilled labourers just like you would for a regular home build. Because of the nature of the structure it would of course take much less time than regular stick-built homes, saving you money even if you employed skilled labour. Prefab as we know it today has existed since the 1960s, but further advancements made it even more accessible in the early 2000s. While the focus shifted slightly to innovative architecture, remaining affordable was still highly prioritized.

Today, particularly with a struggling housing market and the current focus on green initiatives, now is the perfect time to take prefabricated building into serious consideration.
