Built in 1833, the Treaty House was the very first prefabricated home in Waitangi, New Zealand. From container homes to modular housing, prefab homes in NZ have come a long way. Today, new homeowners in New Zealand are looking for durable, versatile and sustainable homes. In this case, prefab homes are the most popular housing option.
The Demand for Prefab Homes
Based on a report by Prefab NZ, the demand for prefab housing is predicted to expand by 15 per cent every year after 2017, reaching 1.1 million prefab units by 2020. Superior design, weather-resistance and fast construction time are some of the main driving factors for the consistently increasing demand of prefab homes. With innovative design and functionality, further modernisation has resulted in the development of designer prefab homes.
Whether you live in the city, countryside or by the beach, your prefab home can be easily transported to your preferred living area. Once delivered to your area, it will be assembled. The construction time on your property is relatively faster than that of non-prefabricated homes. This provides you with an earlier time to move into your prefab home. If ever you decide to move to another area without looking for a new home, prefab homes can easily be relocated to your new living area.
Using Innovative Construction Technology
Since the construction of prefab homes is done in indoor factories, all the materials used are protected from inclement weather. The homes are known for having cutting-edge architecture and eco-credentials.
Most prefabrication factories have engineering departments that use Computer Aided Design (CAD). Using CAD allows the owner to visualise what their home’s exterior and interior will look like before the materials are measured and assembled. The use of new technologies in prefabrication provides higher precision in constructing a home, resulting in lesser chances of construction defects.
Quality Home Interior Design
With the use of CAD, homeowners are free to choose what rooms they want to have, what type of flooring they want for particular rooms or how high their ceiling should be. All it takes is a discussion with your prefab home manufacturer to discuss what your future home would look like.
From prefab home kits to ready-made home designs from top designers, homeowners are given a broad range of designs to choose from. Unlike in traditional stick-frame builds, you can get exactly what you want through the versatility that prefabrication technology allows.
Live in a Green Home
Most factories use green building standards that reduce construction waste. Some factories recycle and renew materials but make sure that the materials are still in good condition before being a part of prefabrication. Innovative materials such as motion-sensing faucets, insulated walls, bamboo flooring and energy-efficient windows enable owners to live in an eco-friendly home without compromising style.
