The Prefab Housing Renaissance

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 11, 2011) - In our December issue, Construction Digital explores the reinvigorated prefab housing market.

The green movement has breathed new life into many overlooked and undervalued markets in the last decade. The prefabricated housing industry is one such example of dramatically shifting consumer demand, as the 'less is more' mantra becomes increasingly mainstream.

More prominently, though, the turn towards sustainability and environmental consciousness has done the most to highlight the strengths and potential of prefab.

An influx of stylish, eco-minded architects and designers into the field of prefabricated homes has brought a sense of renewal and chic to the sector, opening the door for a new breed of would-be homeowners and challenging the traditional model of urban and rural development.
