Modular Home Designs with a Modern Flair
Modular homes have emerged as a potential alternative to traditional permanent home structures due to several advantages like 2-3 times faster construction, all weather-proof, and environment friendliness, among a list of other benefits.
Modular home components are manufactured inside a factory-controlled environment away from the actual construction site. After manufacturing, these modules or components are transported to the actual location where they are installed with the help of engineers and workers.
Advantage of Modular Houses:
Sturdy Built Quality
Modular homes are generally built with insulated steel structures, making them robust and sturdy. The reusable steel structures can make these houses last for a long time, even in harsh weather conditions like extreme heat or cold or rain.
Since the bulk of construction work is done inside a manufacturing facility, modular homes generate lesser construction waste.
Moreover, the actual location of installation remains clean and unpolluted and does not disturb the local ecology. Therefore, these prefab homes can be very environment-friendly to their surroundings.
Modern modular house designs allow proper utilisation of space and natural light. Many of them can be customised with solar panel fittings and LED lightings that can help in saving electricity bills making them an energy-efficient home building option.
A traditional home can take 6 to 12 months of construction time, followed by interior decoration and other associated work. On the contrary, modular construction can be completed in 1/3rd the time than the conventional construction method.
For instance, you can move into a Nestudio, modular home from Nest-In by Tata Steel, in half the time it takes for construction a conventional brick-and-mortar home.
