Prefab or modular homes aren't as bad as you may think. In fact, they're quite efficient. Yes, you will be moving large materials that will most likely require special or professional handling, but these transportations costs could still save you on time and number of trips back and forth. Having lesser days of construction will also help you save on overall labour cost. It is also better for the environment since the structures are built inside a factory, that means there won't be chemical and material wastage left on site. 

I'm sure these beautiful cottages are bound to change the way you think about prefab homes. Let's check them out shall we?

1.Scandinavian dream home

This cottage is made more modern with the choice of grey colour. Architecturally beautiful with deliberate details. See how the roof system extends downward, creating a wall on the left side. Whereas along the right side it has a semi-outdoor area. The use of glass walls are also give the cottage that updated look.

2.Scottish cabin

This stunning modular house is much more spacious inside than it seems on the outside. It has three bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, a kitchen-dining room and a living room. In principle, it is great for all-season living or a beautiful rest house for those family holidays.

3.Rustic mountain lodge

This house can also be prefabricated—skeletal or modular. In principle, many house designs can be converted by professionals from architectural studios who deal with prefabricated houses.


Surprisingly, projects like this chalet look great in a wireframe format. The frame version of many modern firms is an exclusive energy-efficient development, which is also quickly built.

5.Contemporary modular home

In this house the layout is very modern—it has an open floorplan that unites the kitchen, living room and bedroom. Only a small wardrobe and bathroom remained separate. So, this stunningly beautiful cottage has chic interiors and it could even be a mobile home! The whole foundation of the house could be moved and transported to where you want it placed.

6.Modern and rustic

This chic prefab house with a rustic modern style also has an exquisite minimalism look that is simply gorgeous. Luxurious finish with quality materials and expensive furniture that are flawless.

7.Spanish rural retreat

Prefabricated houses are becoming more popular nowadays. Here we see a home with partial stone walls. A beautiful and strong foundation that provide good insulation.

8.Modern cottage

Houses in the style of half-timbered houses are also quickly built. Unlike many other options, they adhere to a laconic appearance in absolutely everything and are still extremely popular design.

9.Charred wood cottage

Houses that use burnt wood walls have some advantages. It's durable, less susceptible to termites, it is fire resistant, and it gives off that cool blackened shade of wood. 

10.German Cottage

But such prefabricated houses are most popular in Germany and Great Britain, where laconicism still acquires more traditional forms of a typical European cottage. Looking at it, you can easily distinguish the bedrooms on the second floor, the kitchen and the living room with a terrace downstairs.

11.Low-cost prefabricated ranch

For low-cost prefabricated projects, this one is a viable contender. This option seeks practicality and the lowest possible cost for a two bedroom home.

12.The Greek Tale

Prefabricated homes can be in any style of architecture and with any interior design. This Santorini-inspired home uses prefab walls, a testament that a professional architect can create diverse designs with prefab materials. 

13.Lakeside cottage

Prefabricated houses can have a very organic look that is perfect for this industrial and minimalist designed home. Just because of the thin walls and panoramic glazing they fit under all three of these moods.
