The world of prefab and modular homes.

Modular fits in (and goes up quickly)

News from Georgia:

"In a historic neighborhood of homes built in the 1800s, Roy Hill's new house went up in a single day after trucks hauled it to Savannah in pieces built inside a North Carolina factory.

Two trucks carried the downstairs level, split into halves, of the home's 2,200 square feet. A couple more brought the upstairs, also in two parts. A fifth truck carried the attic window dormers and parts of the roof..."

From Beth Reiter, the city's historic preservation officer:
"'It doesn't matter what the construction technique is,' Reiter said. 'It's what the product looks like in the end.'"

Read the full article for details on Hill's plan to build an entire development of modular homes.

Peter,

I tried to follow the link from your post but it must've expired because it was broken. I would love to find out about the entire development of modular homes, and if you can remember where that came from (it wasn't the one titled, "prefab home goes up...") and repost it that would be great. Thanks.
