Here are the top manufacturers and their prefab homes over 500 square feet. These are small but no longer tiny homes.
Many today are moving into smaller, affordable homes. They are looking to downsize and change their lifestyles for a better and more sustainable way of living. Prefab homes are a great solution to the ever more expensive housing in this country.
Aside from that, prefab homes are great investments as well. Even with limited space, these small homes are customizable and can function as primary dwellings. Owners may turn them into vacation rentals, office studios, or other ADU.
