  • Pre-fab Houses? What do You Think?

    They've been around for a few decades now, but I still see more stick built homes going up in my area. I lived in a prefab home about 30 years ago. It was a good home and we had no problems with it related to the construction technique.

    I think the RTM/Prefab houses are more of a small town/rural thing where there are not the trades to stick build a house or summer cottage.

    You move the RTM on your foundation have the contractors roving crew come in and do the tie-ins to your utilities and you are good to go.

    We have two RTM manufactures here in our city and they seem to be busy as the houses in their compound change out.

    The only prefab building I have seen was an apartment block that built that way.
