Three Prefab Companies You May Have Missed

The world of residential housing, both in Energy efficiency and affordability, is being turned upside down by small disruptive new companies entering the marketplace.

Modular, prefab and affordable are almost synonymous today. I chose these three new housing suppliers at random from the hundreds that are popping up in every day in every part of the country to show you that companies with original ideas are going to be a big part of the housing market over the next decade.

Just like microbreweries showing up everywhere to take market share from the big boys, these hundreds of disruptors will make their mark on housing especially with Millennials.

Here are my first three randomly selected manufacturers for you to learn about:

This company has been featured on HGTV.



Their company statement:

“We believe that great design and quality housing should be affordable and attainable for everyone. Our goal is to help improve lives by supporting economic freedom, intentional living, and sustainability by designing and building the best luxury custom tiny homes in America. With over 40 years of building and design experience and hundreds of full-scale homes completed, we bring a unique perspective to the challenges and opportunities facing tiny homes.”

Even though this will probably never be totally accepted by the average new home buyer, it’s unique properties will find buyers that will fall in love with the idea of living in a natural home they built themselves.

Their better living statement is:

“Hemp + Lime + H2o mixed together make Fire, Mold, Termite-Proof, super-insulating, breathable, alkaline and energy efficient homes. And the price to build with hemp is around the same as regular construction with the added benefits of living in a healthier environment - better for you, your children and generations to come.”

DIRTT Environmental Solutions:

They do not build houses, rather they build innovative interiors walls.
