Building an Home Extension


Prefabricated homes are high quality and cost-effective options

Homeowners looking for convenience, lower costs and energy efficiency often turn to prefabricated homes. However, many people aren't familiar with the details that surround these types of homes. As a result, many homeowners in Australia are missing out on a great option for achieving home ownership.

Prefabricated homes can be described as houses that are built in sections. Construction takes place at a home building facility, where separate sections are assembled in accordance with the climate and design specifications of the owner. They are then shipped and assembled at the site of the property.

In case you didn't know, prefabricated homes are a top choice for cutting down on building times and delivering quality products in the end.

The building process differs from regular homes

Prefabricated homes are built differently from regular homes. In addition to being built off-site, they can also be designed much faster without adverse weather conditions interfering with the construction process. They are built with strict conformity to building codes and guidelines that often exceed those of regular homes.

They can be used for commercial purposes

You would be surprised to know that prefabricated homes are also used in commercial applications. Office buildings and retail outlets are regularly built through an off-site prefabricated style.  

Loans, insurance and tax rates are similar

Prefabricated homes are normally held to the same standards and regulations as regular homes. This means that loans, insurance rates and tax requirements are all held to the same regulations as traditional homes.

They can be built for accessible living

Prefabricated homes are a popular option for persons with disabilities and those who require special features in order to navigate their property. The flexible construction process allows for inhabitants to specify what they need to have in place so as to live more comfortably. Steps can then be taken to accommodate their specific needs during production.

Benefits of prefabricated homes

Quality

Prefabricated homes are often built using high quality and durable components. They use advanced technological methods to design and construct the homes, and parts are not susceptible to destruction from poor weather.

Customisation

You have the added flexibility of designing unique and interesting floor plans to suit your specific tastes. Design and arrange windows, rooms and bathrooms however you please.

Efficiency

Prefabricated homes are built faster than traditional homes. They are planned and engineered with precision, allowing for a very efficient construction process. In addition, the assembly of various parts at the actual site is done in a shorter amount of time than traditional construction.

About Me

Building an Home Extension

Hello, my name is Wendy and this is my construction blog. I do not work in the construction industry myself, but I have spent the last 7 months of my life with construction workers and contractors as they designed and built an extension to my property. I had always dreamed of extending my home so we could enlarge the kitchen and have an additional bedroom on the second-floor. My husband always objected, but when I won some money on the lotto, he couldn't stop me. The contractors were really great and I got a real insight into the industry so I decided to start this blog.
