What are the benefits of a prefabricated self build home?

Prefabricated homes are popular among self-builders due to their speed of construction and energy performance. They also offer great value for money.

Prefab homes offer equally high standards of construction as brick-built houses. They are as strong and durable, if not more so, than other construction methods.

Self-builders enjoy the precision a prefab home offers. The components are manufactured in controlled factory conditions, and offer the same design benefits you would expect from a self-build project.

Vision’s prefabricated homes are manufactured using both our open and closed timber frame panel systems. Both systems lend themselves well to both modern and traditional style designs.

Fixed programmes for design, manufacture and erection allow self-builders to plan for follow-on trades with more accuracy, and no down-times for ‘drying out’ periods.

Weather conditions have little effect on prefabricated structural systems with all components fabricated off-site. We work under the cover of a factory roof ensuring the highest standards of quality that assures for on-site assembly running smoothly. Timescales for the design and manufacture for a prefab self-build home are 10-12 weeks with the installation process approximately 3-4 weeks.
