Maine Prefab Homes - Save Thousands by Building Prefab

Thursday, May 28, 2009
Modular homes or "Prefab homes" as they are often called are a great way to build the new home you want and save thousands in the process. The NAHB in cooperation with PATH did several studies on the cost savings for prefab homes. What they discovered is that by using a prefab home building system like modular or panelized construction there was less waste, less shrinkage (theft of material), less cost overruns, less delays in the construction schedule, increase buyer power on materials/labor, significant labor efficiencies, and less money spent on construction loans and interest payments.

At Ryzen Homes, we are seeing an averaging savings of around 5-10% depending on the project and taking into account all the issues listed above. This is a signficant amoutn of money that can be saved when building a new prefab home in Maine. Whether you are building a $150,000 home or $500,000 custom waterfront home, you can expect to save $7,500 to $25,000 or more on the cost of your new home.
