Prefabs

A prefab, or prefabricated home, is built off-site and then shipped to a building site in parts to be assembled on the home lot. The term “prefab home” is simply a generic term used to describe any type of home built in a factory. Prefab homes are affordable and come with plenty of benefits, so it’s no surprise that prefab popularity is on the rise.

Tiny Homes

Tiny homes, or homes with an average size of 20-40  m2, come with a massive amount of benefits — including their extremely earth-friendly, low-cost, and efficient nature. For example, the average home’s energy use results in the release of over 7200 kg of CO2 pollution annually, while a tiny home  releases only 500 kg of CO2.

Non-Toxic Materials

The typical home is built with materials with toxic chemicals, formaldehyde (found in particle board, plywood, and pressed wood products) and solvents that release harmful VOCs (found in paints, stains, preservatives, and adhesives). Building and remodeling with non-toxic materials means reducing or eliminating these hazards, making the building as healthy as possible. VOC-free paints, non-toxic woods, and natural carpeting and insulation are great examples of alternative materials for a healthy home.
