Invest in the getaway home of your dreams today with prefab cottages. This is our digest of the top prefab cottage manufacturers. Read on!
Traditional homes have long been the way homes were built. However, the times are changing, and the approach to building durable houses has also changed.
Prefab cottages are small but not tiny (bigger than prefab cabins). Even then, these small homes have the amenities traditional houses have, including bedrooms, bathrooms, customizable kitchens, dining areas, porches, and more.
You may as well make your prefab cottage your primary home or a vacation home. Regardless of the purpose, this type of prefab home is an ideal alternative to a traditional cabin.
Much like traditional cottages, you will find their prefab counterparts with their iconic gable roofs and just enough front porch space.
Here are some of the best manufacturers of prefab cottages in the US.
