Are you looking for a quick solution for your lack of home problem? In this modern age, you have to be efficient if you want to succeed in life. I myself thought that every aspect of my life need to be quick to finish (well except for your life itself. I wish you a long and happy life, stranger) and nothing irritates me than a long delay in the things I am working on. Every aspect of life counts, and house building is not an exception to that. I want a house that is quick to build and will not take my time because I want to quickly enjoy the comfort of my new house.
I never thought it can be an idea that can be realized, but a quick search has led me to find something that is called a prefabricated house (prefab homes or prefabs, if you want to be ‘hip’). Turns out prefabricated house is the kind of house I am looking for. Of course, I am also looking for a prefabricated small house because I am not a married person just yet.
Have no idea on what is a prefabricated house? I will help you in that department, mates.
What is a prefabricated house actually is? Where does it originates from?
To make it simple and short, I will tell you only this: a prefabricated house is actually a house that has been divided into parts, much like the building blocks that you have (or not have, maybe) when you are nothing but children. The manufacturer of a prefabricated house will build the house in parts so that it can be easier to transport to your intended house location. When it has arrived, the contractor that you have hired will put it in its place and voila, you have yourself a new home. This method of housing of course, is a quicker alternative than to build your house from the ground with cement mixture and bricks.
I cannot find information on where did prefabricated houses originate from, but someone told me that it came from India in the 16th century.
How long will it take to build myself one?
How long it will take depends on what size you are looking for. If you are looking for a small prefabricated house like me, then it should not take too long for the contractors to assemble your house. Talking from experience (I once saw contractors assemble a prefabricated house that is not big), the assembly could take from 12 hours to a whole day. Pretty quick for building a house, eh?
