There are many worrisome headlines about the living situations that Americans face. Residents, public officials, and industry experts are all concerned about the affordability of housing, and that concern has increased due to the amount of labor shortages the nation is facing. However, there is no need to feel anxious or stressed.

Luckily, a future is made possible through the use of innovative technology and shift in thinking. The issue that needs to be addressed is how affordable homes are built.Technology has innovated ways that housing is dealt with by bringing prefabricated buildings back into the limelight.
A prefabricated home is a special type of building that is manufactured off-site in advance, and in standard sections that are easily shipped and assembled. This is better than traditional building because traditional building requires a lot more tedious work. You need to buy the materials, store them, drive the pilings, pour the foundation, etc, etc, etc. These are very labor-intensive ways which also means expensive.

Prefabricated homes are types of homes that are common all over the country from New York to Washington State and everything in between. These types of homes can either be single family homes or apartment buildings.

However, prefabricated housing is not new. However with the introduction of cheap and clean materials and newer innovative concepts have created a whole new avenue for the housing situation. It’s as if IKEA and Amazon had a baby!

IKEA mastered the concept of making parts while minimizing packaging and shipping costs in order to provide consumers with a quick and simple assembly process. This got rid of the excess need of a big warehouse with bulky, inconvenient, and expense shipping. This also gave users an alternative choice to traditional furniture shopping.

Amazon was able to capitalize on technological breakthrough! Instead of stockpiling to maintain each and every product available, it is instead the sales point for numerous manufacturers, and either Amazon or the manufacturers source the product to the customer on each order.
Prefabricated construction merges the simplicity of IKEA’s approach, and the technological aspect of Amazon’s approach. It speeds up construction time, provides uniformity in quality, reduce the amount of costs, and yield a significantly more efficient use of labor.

This type of innovative thinking is what will allow housing to become not only more affordable, but also allows buyers to get more bang for their buck and live in a place that is best for them and their family that doesn’t break the bank!

  1. I'm a single mother with a special needs daughter and we have been homeless awhile now. I have tried everything to get us into a home and nothing. I have poor credit and no money down. Please any suggestions would be great

  2. I too am suffering homeless in critical condition, discrimination etc: I am so sorry. Please look into section 8 , public housing, and NACA Program in the state you decide to reside in. They do take time but they give five family first priority sometimes. Free land is another option but it’s difficult to build a home without money and grants take long. I personally do not like prefab homes and they are not strong enough to endure hurricanes etc: I will pray for yous and please pray for me too.
