However, just by having a pre-built set up does not mean that we have to give up on style. Although it is commonly thought that these houses are rather boxy looking, nothing could be further from the truth these days. There are many designs promptly available for the buyer, but the manufacturers will alter and redesign the building to make it fit into what the customer wants.
Some people will want to construct a more traditional style place but this can take an inordinate amount of time and cash too. Difficulties in the finishing materials always appear to rear its ugly head just when the family may be looking forward to the move. Even delays due to inclement weather can add months to the expected finish date so it is important that people take this into account when they start the whole project.
Of course, the wonders of modern technology mean that these prefabricated houses ar simply bolted together in a matter of a day or two. Even those who have no construction experience merely have to use a screwdriver and a few other tools to finish the job. As long as the foundations ar professionally finished, the whole thing can be put up very quickly and can be tenanted as soon as the furniture is moved in.
Floor plans for these wonderful places are really easy to work out and it is really only the imagination which limits what can be done. Some people will even design the whole place themselves and then leave it up to the manufacturer to interpret these plans in a way that is satisfactory to both parties.
Those who ar extra clever will surely add in some other extra materials too like stone fire chimneys and breasts. This gives the whole place that look of sustainability which comes with the more traditional place but it really fools the eye since most of the building will be just bolted together.
Of course, since most of the materials are man-made, they ar extremely easy to take care of and resistant to pests which would normally eat through wood at an alarming rate. Those parts that are natural, like wood sidings etc, will be pre-treated in the factory so they should be safe right from day one.
