Prefab Buildings: Efficient yet Beautiful

Small prefab homes are gaining traction through the design world and are busting preconceptions on what is possible. Choosing prefab as a construction method for your project brings with it a completely new set of challenges and opportunities. Some of the benefits stem from the building being constructed in a controlled warehouse environment; this means that the quality of the build is higher and more controlled, there is reduced wastage of materials, the build process is quicker as all materials and equipment are already ‘on site’ in the warehouse and the building timeline is not impacted by inclement weather.

 

Here are two videos of breathtaking prefab buildings, including raised bed nooks set under windows allowing star gazing, fireplaces and daybeds, living rooms that open up to verandahs and beautiful views, skylights, modern finishes and more:

We have designed and built prefab projects and are amazed with the quick progress and efficiency of this construction method. This is definitely something to consider when thinking of a new build or extension project. Have a look at the process of one of our prefab homes here:
