SANFORD, NC--(Marketwire - Aug 14, 2012) - For decades, prefabricated structures have been believed to be weak and inefficient alternatives to home and office construction. However, recent advancements in design and technology are erasing that stigma, as many companies, such as Homes by Vanderbuilt, are providing property owners with energy-efficient, sturdy and customizable spaces to live comfortably. A recent article from The Miami Herald showcases the success of another prefab business, Cabin Fever. It notes that the Miami-based company has quickly grown its modular cabin design product to create a wide array of structures that are easy to build, environmentally-friendly and suitable for a majority of American environments.
The article explains that prefabricated housing and construction has helped heal America's recovering economy. In a recent press statement, Homes by Vanderbuilt reveals, "Modular homes can provide features that lower energy bills; the materials are factory-made, which cut production costs; and the time it takes to build a property is incredibly short in comparison to on-site construction methods." According to the article, Cabin Fever was able to construct its "Zip cabin" in just seven hours with only two workers at last year's International Contemporary Furniture Fair.
In addition to its cost-saving capabilities, modular homes are also much safer than consumers expect. The article explains that Cabin Fever's products can withstand Florida hurricanes, California earthquakes, provide cool temperatures in the hot desert and stay warm in cold mountain regions. This appeal has given the company a chance to expand all over the nation, as many have found prefabricated structures to be an affordable way to transform undeveloped property. Even big names such as Bob Dylan and David Copperfield have requested structures from the company.
However, Homes by Vanderbuilt adds that the market is not just limited to those seeking a traditional home. The company -- serving North Carolina, Virginia and South Carolina residents -- has seen tremendous growth in the application of modular structures. Such products have been used to build entire apartment complexes, assisted living homes, bath houses for a backyard pool, commercial office spaces and cottages for camp ground rentals. Homes by Vanderbuilt concludes that while the structures may follow a similar, basic foundation, they can be designed in practically any style and outfitted with any appliances -- modular products have even been used to design ready-to-place restaurants with all the necessary equipment already installed.
Homes by Vanderbuilt constructs prefabricated modular and double wide homes. In doing so, the company provides the opportunity of homeownership to Americans living in North Carolina, southern Virginia, and the northern region of South Carolina. Homes by Vanderbuilt provide living spaces that are built one section at a time and monitored closely by the quality control department. Once the modules are complete, they are transported to the property of the homeowner. Homes by Vanderbuilt are proud to provide an avenue to homeownership to its customers.
