Prefabricated homes are a popular trend worldwide because of the short time with which they can be completed as well as the practicality of their design and their energy efficient features. While earlier the available choices of prefab homes were limited to a few, nowadays, you can find gorgeous designs that might make you want to opt for one instead of going through the long-drawn process of constructing a home.
In this ideabook, we’ve picked 10 of the best prefab home designs that we have come across.
Besides providing a low-cost housing option, this design stands out because of its simple design that takes into account the local weather conditions. The tiled roof and the colourful façade make it blend with the other houses in the neighbourhood.
In this wooden prefab home, the use of cement blocks for the foundation sets the home higher than ground level and not only provides easy drainage of rainwater, but also facilitates insulation.
An interesting design that uses upcycled wooden pallets on the exterior walls, the construction of this home is easy and cost effective. Additionally, the placement of windows within the structure fills the interiors with natural light.
While wooden cabins are not uncommon, this prefab one is stunning because of its minimalist design that incorporates sliding glass windows that bring in natural light and frame the beautiful scenery outdoors. The feature that we love the most is the built-in book shelf!

The structure of this prefab home is reminiscent of a large and airy Mediterranean barn.
