Prefabricated Homes, Prefab Homes and Modular Homes are often used interchangeably for houses in which the components are built at a factory, shipped to the building
site and installed. The main advantage to prefabricated homes is that, once the foundation has been prepared, the prefab home can be "constructed" in days. The primary disadvantage is that typically there are limitations
to significant changes in design. The economic comparisons of a prefab home to that of standard construction depend upon many factors, such as the foundation contruction and shipping costs. A few of the
