Kit homes have been around for nearly a century, but they've gained popularity in recent years thanks to fresh new designs and consumers looking for more affordable housing options in an expensive real estate market. A kit home -- even more do-it-yourself friendly than the average prefab home -- arrives mostly preassembled and requires less time and labor to put into place.
Kit Homes Modern explains everything homeowners need to know about this low cost/high design alternative, offering a comprehensive look at the full range of modern kit homes currently on the market. A brief, entertaining history on the origin and evolution of kit homes, including how they differ from mobile homes, is followed by a visual, behind-the-scenes tour of the creation of a kit home -- from the architect's drawing board to the factory floor to its final destination.
Kit Homes Modern will raise the potential homeowner's comfort level and provide a vivid and precise understanding of the structural and interior features of the kit home and the many options available. Tips and hints on buying and installing a kit home tell homeowners exactly what to expect and show them how to avoid costly pitfalls and mistakes. And an exhaustive resource section provides up-to-date references on manufacturers, architects, consumer websites, consultants, and contractors who specialize in kit homes.
