What is a Prefab Home?

In today’s ever-rising real estate market, affording a home can seem out of reach for the average family. That’s why more and more prospective buyers are expressing interest in the world of prefab. Prefab is short for prefabricated. A prefabricated home is exactly as it sounds: a home that was pre-built in a factory before arriving on your plot of land.

The Pros to Prefab

Buying a prefab home comes with a lot of perks. Namely, they cost significantly less than site-built homes (sometimes more than 50% less). Not only that, but prefab homes are constructed indoors, meaning the construction process is shielded from potentially damaging weather conditions, like extreme wind and rain. Plus, prefab homes boast a lightning-quick construction time. Whereas custom site-built homes typically take the better part of a year to build, a custom prefab home can be move-in ready in mere weeks.

The pros to prefab in a nutshell are:

  • Cost
  • Security
  • Speed

Our home builders have three decades of experience in the local industry. If you’re interested in prefab, allow our seasoned contractors to help you weigh the pros and cons. Book a consultation with us today.

Prefabricated Home Construction

If you’re sick of renting, and are considering home ownership, you may be feeling like you’ve opened Pandora’s box right now. At Hartley Homes & Consulting, we aim to sort out your options clearly, so you can back your decisions with relevant information, and none of the headaches.

Like with most cities, Penticton can be a difficult place to get into home ownership. The prices are high, and it’s hard to find exactly what you’re looking for all in one home. Because of this, more people are considering custom, and finding themselves exploring the world of prefab.

Pros and Cons

With any large decision, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons and, at Hartley Homes & Consulting we strive to be as open as possible about both. We want all of our Penticton clients to be confident in their choices. Both manufactured and modular homes have many advantages, such as:

Energy efficiency

Newer homes are easy to make energy efficient right from the start. With an older home, many expensive renovations are required, but both manufactured and modular homes can be eco-friendly and energy efficient.

Quick timeline

Prefab homes are manufactured in a factory, meaning that they aren’t subject to delays such as weather. You will never have a rainy or snowy day shutdown the build site on a prefab home.


Prefabs have very appealing price points. At the most affordable, manufactured homes range from $37,000-$73,000 and modular for an average of $50 per square foot.


Being built in a factory, manufactured and modular homes are assembled by skilled workers uninterrupted by the weather forecast. Without that interference, you can be assured that the build can very well be more solid than a stick built home. Inspections also take place throughout the process.

As you can see, the advantages are many. The prefab homes we manufacture can stand the test of time, help the eco-system and not break your bank account. But there are some things to take into consideration as well.

Land Cost

Budgeting for a prefab home doesn’t just include the home, it includes the land, too. Keep this in mind!

More Money Up-Front

Getting money from the bank to finance a prefab home is a process. It does not have the same rules as a custom built home, so you will have to put more down upfront.

Utilities Hookup

To hook up your utilities, you may have to level the land you’ve purchased.

Less Custom Options

While modular homes are quite good in this area, a manufactured home has minimal options for customization, limited to the interior of the home and what you add on once it’s placed on the land.

Resale Opportunity

Modular and manufactured homes both have less chance of growing in value. Modular are more likely, but manufactured tend only to gain value when sold along with the land they are on.
