Large prefab homes - when size really does matter!
As life changes so can the requirements placed on the family home. Whether it's more rooms for children, or space for guests, having a large modern home can become essential as time progresses. Even if you don't plan on filling the extra space with people having a few extra rooms can mean an office, craft room, reading room or media room are all of a sudden realistic options in your family home.
When it comes to prefabricated homes many think that bigger isn't necessarily better. After all, when you think of a home that needs to fit on the back of a lorry you may believe that the larger the home the more impractical this becomes.
A large home can be transported just as easily as a 'smaller' home. Yes, it can be slightly more restricted than a smaller design but this doesn't mean a large prefab home should be written off just because it has to be trucked in.
Genius Homes now offer a house design so large that it includes 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 living rooms and a wrap-around deck. Hardly the tiny home that most people think of they think of the words 'prefab' or 'transportable'. So how is it that prefab and transportable homes can get so large? Well, a lot of it has to do with their innovative design. They're built with an intelligent layout which maximises space and still offers an impressive floor plan.
So to celebrate how large transportable homes are getting this blog focuses on the larger homes in the Genius Homes range - including the 5 bedroom monster home!
Here are some of our popular large home designs that we are sure will impress. Prefab doesn't have to be tiny homes.
