In today’s world, people are spending more time at home than ever. School, work, and family time. Your home and property should be in a place that feels good to you. Many families are now looking at the option of a cabin-style prefab home. Modular home cabins provide a rustic, warm atmosphere providing stylish living whether secluded down a country road or set up as a vacation home near the lake.
So many people don’t make the jump because they don’t feel a cabin home is possible for them. Buying a cabin seems like a dream. However, choosing a prefab/modular cabin opens up your options and means your housing dreams can come true.
Pratt Homes in Tyler, Texas, understands that whether you’re looking for full-time cabin living, a vacation home, ranch, lake house, or your perfect Texas Hill Country cabin, a modular cabin option could be your best option.
Many people want to buy a traditional log cabin or even a log cabin KIT, because of its “rustic charms,” but those details can become a lot less charming over time. Water damage to wood, pests, and the elements cause a lot of work for homeowners.
A prefab/modular cabin is cost-efficient and a wise investment and means you won’t have the construction and maintenance issues that generally come with a traditional cabin.
Here’s a list of some other incredible benefits of designing and buying a modular cabin that you may have never considered:
Modular Home and Cabin Options
One of the biggest benefits of choosing a modular/prefab cabin as your primary home or vacation home is that you’ll have so many options to customize. Customizing your space helps ensure you and your family live comfortably and benefit the most from your living space. While there are basic design templates, you have choices on upgrades and other custom designs.
A prime example of a great customizable option is sustainability. Modular homes have excellent sustainable options. Not only is this more energy-efficient, but it will also save you money. Utility savings are a big benefit of choosing a prefab cabin. Those savings can help you afford a larger home or bigger piece of property.
You also have the choice of many upgrades, which can turn a cozy cabin into a luxurious vacation getaway. Or make a family home into both a cabin getaway and a comfortable living/workspace.
At Pratt Family homes, our design options include special details such as a custom kitchen, solid pine doors, flooring, and unique porches. We also offer your choice of size, from 550 square feet to 1800 square feet. These options are especially helpful when choosing a cabin, as people’s “cabin needs” are diverse.
Some people want their cabin on a piece of property that is secluded in the woods or on a lake. Others want the cabin-life in a more urban setting. Building a modular cabin makes it all possible.
Property for Your Modular Cabin
While the options themselves are enough reason to design and build your own modular cabin, it’s also a wise investment.
The affordability of the cabin structure makes it possible to focus your finances more on property and location than being limited to trying to find both. As anyone who’s done property/home searches before can tell you, it isn’t easy.
It’s tough to find a place that has both the location, property, and home you’re looking for.
How many times have you come upon the perfect place—a farm property, lake lot, or other rural/semi-rural location and thought, “This is it. This is where I want to have a home.”
Choosing a prefab cabin allows you to have both the perfect home and perfect location. Whether it’s a vacation home/secondary home or your forever-home with your family, a modular cabin is a perfect option.
Construction of Modular Homes and Cabins
A primary benefit of choosing a modular cabin is construction. Building a traditional cabin takes a considerable amount of time and has the potential for a lot of setbacks. Those setbacks can be costly in both time and money. Prefab/modern cabins require less construction time, so you have more time to spend enjoying and making memories.
Modular cabins are built and constructed indoors, so much of the damage from weather, etc. that can occur with traditional homes doesn’t happen with modular.
Modern cabins have the benefits of the warm, comfortable cabin feel, but with all the amenities. And without the drawbacks, many traditional cabin constructions come with. Anyone who’s had to deal with construction problems understands how expensive and time consuming they can be. Both during and after the home is built. Choosing a modular cabin helps ensure you won’t run into these construction issues.
