Recommended Posts

Whatever they are called, kit homes, modular homes,prefab homes.

Has any of the members had any experiences with these type of homes?

Is there many companies doing them in the Philippines?

Look forward to your comments.

Thanks,

If your talking about homes made out of 20 and 40 foot shipping containers there are several topics about those here for you to browse through.

 

When I think of modular homes I think of those pre made houses that are constructed off site then put together on site. Have not seen any mention in any forums, advertisements or commercials here of that type. Not saying they are not out there, just have not seen any.

 

Labor and materials (of which the majority of locals use) are just to inexpensive to justify that type of industry here IMO.

This one http://indigohouse.yolasite.com/expandable-prefab-container.php  is some similar to the one I have in Sweden, but theirs has more clever roof construction, mine need maintainance rather often to not leak. Flat roofs make it harder to avoid.

 

I forgot to tell - or I thought   :)  we talked about prefabed LIVING houses - I have seen some more prefabed industry/warehouse buildings. One is/was stationed somewhere in the Bacolod region, specialiced in BIG industry buildings, so I didn't bother to memorice where  :)

Hi Onemore, did you ever invest in a kit home? I'm looking at Indigo's site but there are no prices. Do you have any more info you can share?

Thanks
