Chino Goes Prefab!
Recently, 3 brand new homes were built on G Street in Chino, CA by a local Non Profit housing developer.
These homes are 3 bedroom 2 bath and Craftsman style, one story homes that feature many energy efficient items, for example solar energy .
The homes are unique in that they also feature a front porch and an attached garage.
These homes were built with the modern construction technique known as modular construction also known as prefab homes.
The homes are built in sections( modules) in a modular factory and include framing, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, drywall, paint, toilets, cabinets, flooring , windows, exterior cladding, roof and appliances.
Homes built with modular construction are built with the same materials as a site built home – although they have up to 30% more lumber than a site built homes, thus making modular homes stronger.
Modular construction is typically 50% faster than a site built home as builders can complete site work and foundation at the same time the house is being built Off-Site in a building center.
USModular, Inc. the is premiere builder of homes built with modular construction and has built everything from 500 sq. ft granny flats to 4,000 sq. ft custom homes and even 100,000+ sq. ft 3 story modular apartments and everything in-between and using modular construction.
