Modular homes are usually a less expensive alternative in home construction. However, it is important to point out that modular homes are not inferior in quality when compared to traditionally built homes; in fact they meet or exceed all state and local building codes. #ModularHomes

Once a modular home is built, there is no visible difference between it and a site-built home. The unfortunate part of this truth is that it is also impossible to distinguish the fact that the modular home is much more structurally sound that its stick-built neighbors. But, perhaps, the most often overlooked advantage of modular construction is how modifications can be made to existing floor plans to make such house uniquely your home.

New South Wales is seeking greater use of ‘alternate building systems’ including prefabricated components and modular homes, and is asking for ideas from the construction industry about how these could help boost the state’s social housing stock.

MODULAR housing is at last moving away from its trailer-trash stereotype, but the evolution is long overdue.

A decade ago the mining boom presented a huge opportunity for this industry, which for years had supplied prefab site offices and classrooms as a fast, affordable and flexible building solution for business and government needs. It responded by producing large numbers of aluminium dongas for worker villages and small numbers of modular houses, which also looked like dongas.

Modular homes sold in the boom towns of Australia across this period can be counted in the low hundreds, rather than thousands. Evidently, the industry missed a huge opportunity, but now things are changing.

Established manufacturer Ausco Modular has developed designs to compete directly with the traditional family home, while new entrant Prebuilt has gone upmarket with its designs in a bid to dramatically reduce the cost of designer homes.

Homeless people would be given factory-built apartments under a Greens policy that the party hopes will get the problem of rough sleepers on the election agenda.

Homelessness and public housing charities estimate it would take the construction of 7000 units to ensure no Australian goes without a roof over their head.

The Pacific Northwest is probably the geographical area in the U.S. that is most attuned to energy conservation and the importance of the “green” phenomena. Kit HomeBuilders West and the manufactured housing industry is on-board with this environmental concept of preserving our natural resources and low cost energy savings in a high comfort home.

Okay, so you are planning on building a home on a budget and you're thinking that having a wide range of options on form and function, all for a less expense, may be too good to be true. However, the gap between your budget and your taste may not be as wide as you think when building modular homes.

Modular Homes are constructed, delivered, and assembled in sections called modules. These modules are then shipped to the homeowner's site where a team of expert builders put all the modules together on a permanent foundation to give the modular home its final shape.

 A NEW business selling unique transportable homes is counting down to opening day. Affordable Portable, shortened to AP Cabins and Homes, is owned by Antoinette Van Geet, her builder husband Tony and another builder Fritz von Schuckmann.

For $61,000 you can get the basic model (in a range of five designs) that is 8.8m long by 3.8m wide.

They are Colorbond-clad, and have a steel frame and unique design elements like a fold-down bed, a loft/mezzanine bed, functional decks and sloping eaves.

"We are aiming at the residential market, to people who want granny flats or an investment," Ms Van Geet said.

"We can put two modules together to form a house. They are very cute and modern-looking, and very energy-efficient."

Ms Van Geet, an art teacher at Crystal Waters near Maleny, has a background in design, home renovation, theatre set design, building, painting and decorating.

Ms Van Geet's furniture-maker son has designed scale models to help potential customers better imagine how the cabins look.

She said their point of difference was most evident in the design.

"We make them so they don't look like a shed," she said. "There is nothing of this design out there. And we insulate under the floor with an eco-blanket product, and we have a fold-out bed to create extra space.

"It is fully engineered and is very strong; it comes fully wired and plumbed. It includes an LP gas stove, a gas hot water service and a flushing toilet."

AP Cabins and Homes opens in Kenilworth on July 6.

Adding extra bedrooms to state houses and building new small homes isn't nearly enough to solve the overcrowding problem, Labour says.

The pre-fabricated modular homes will be assembled on sections of large Housing New Zealand properties in Waitakere, North Shore and Manukau.

The projects are part of the government's affordable housing accord with the Auckland Council, unveiled last week, which has a target of 39,000 houses inside Auckland's current urban boundaries over three years.

With Klik, Australian companies Elenberg Fraser and Unitised Building have come up with a prefabricated modular building system they claim is equally suited to knocking up a quick skyscraper as it is a modern, designer house. It makes sense, then, that the product is pitched at developers, architects and would-be homeowners, and that the multiple choice procurement procedure is identical for each. If you can tick a box, you can design a Klik building, more or less.
