All you need to know about Prefabricated Farmhouses
Many people dream of building a farmhouse away from the hustle and bustle of the city in a remote location amidst nature. While you may not occupy the farmhouse every day, you would still want the house to have beautiful aesthetics and be highly functional. However, often, when you try building a farmhouse in a remote location, you may face many challenges.
Firstly, the rough terrain of the location may make it hard for you to build a farmhouse using the conventional building method. Secondly, getting the required labourers near the location may be difficult. Not to mention, you may not get the necessary raw materials nearby. This is where a prefabricated farmhouse comes as a perfect solution.
Prefabricated homes are constructed using modular building technology where the different parts or components of the house are manufactured in a factory-controlled environment and then transported to the actual site for final assembly and finishing.
Prefabricated houses are quite popular in the US, Europe and Japan, and India is slowly catching up with the trend. As people are becoming increasingly aware of the drawbacks of the traditional brick and mortar construction and its massive impact on the environment, people prefer building a prefab farmhouse.
Today, there are many modular construction services in India like Nest-In, from the house of Tata Steel. They provide several modular home solutions, and one of their most popular prefab solutions is Nestudio. It is a designer grade modular home that features aesthetically appealing interiors and provides maximum utility.
Let us look at the benefits of prefabricated farmhouses.
One of the most significant benefits of building a prefab farmhouse like Nestudio is that the construction can be completed 2-3 times faster than a traditional house that is built on-site. The external factors like shortage of raw materials, lack of labourers, weather fluctuations, all of which are common hindrances in on-site construction, does not affect the prefab construction.
No risk of accidents and injuries
A major drawback with the traditional on-site construction method is lack of safety to the workers and the labourers. During the construction process, many things can go wrong, leading to major accidents. However, when you opt for building a prefab farmhouse, the construction is done in a controlled environment.
The experts carry out regular inspections and monitor each step and ensure that the work is done by adhering to safety norms. This significantly reduces the risk of accidents and injuries to the workers.
When you opt for building a prefabricated modern farmhouse like Nestudio, the experts from
Nest-In from the house of Tata Steel will work closely with you to finalise the design, layout and the interior features that you want to have in your home. You can choose to have designer fittings and accessories of your choice. The fabricators ensure that they execute the plan to perfection and ensure that the customised elements are exactly the way you want it.
More usable space
In traditional RCC construction, the houses have columns and beams, which support the weight of the house and strength to the structure. However, the columns take away a lot of usable space. However, with prefab construction solutions like Nestudio, there are no beams and columns, which gives you about 10-15% more usable space inside the home.
Prefab solutions like Nestudio are built with highest quality reusable steel. The extensive use of steel makes the structure robust and strong. Also, unlike the traditional construction methods, prefab homes reduce the wastage of raw materials. When analysed over a range of life cycles, the prefab construction has significant environmental benefits compared to RCC construction.
Thus, with such a wide range of benefits, prefab construction comes as an excellent solution for building a farmhouse; it is a perfect combination of aesthetics, functionality and structural strength.
