Modular Homes: Evolution of Housing?
The concept of modular homes is fascinating. The production efficiency is much greater than traditional home building due to the ability to manufacture rooms/homes indoor, mass replication of standard designs, high durability of materials (so I’ve heard), and the ability to drop it on a slab without the need to dig out a foundation. It seems like a great fit to meet the housing demands that are being called for, especially in urban areas, by adding housing faster and at a lower cost. Some of the companies manufacturing them are even designing energy efficient / carbon negative homes to appeal to a generation that is increasingly trying to reduce its carbon footprint. Modular housing seems to be an interesting idea to meet several growing needs at once. Does anyone have experience with modular homes? What are your thoughts and what do you see as a potential future for this?
