There are various types of prefab home available and some are more appealing than others. Fr example mobile homes are generally considered a type of prefab home. However, even though the quality of a mobile home is good, they are not up to the quality of other types of homes. There are also often restrictions on this type of home in certain communities. Because of home owner associations, there may be restrictions on the type of home that can be built so be sure to check with the area in which you are building before committing to anything.
Modular homes are often not as restricted as mobile homes and there is a lot more flexibility to these.
