Prefabricated homes, or ‘prefabs,’ have been around in North America since the early 1900s, first offered to settlers as cut and measured timbers to self-assemble their homes. Modern-day prefabs are assembled off-site, come in a variety of housing styles, and are more than likely customizable. The prefab has gone through many revisions, and has ultimately settled as an affordable option to those wanting their own home, but may not be ready to buy the traditional way. The 3-bed, 2-bath Lulamae is a great example of what can be done to elevate a simple layout into a unique and stylish space. With the base model starting in the $120,000s it’s a great starter home for first time buyers, or downsizing option for empty nesters.
