5 Different Types of Kit Homes

When kit homes were first introduced, there was very little choice and they looked like something that robots would live in. Nowadays, kit homes are as elegant and stylish as any home, and can be custom built according to your needs. The following are some of the main types of kit homes that you will find on the market these days.

Timber VS Steel Fame

Most people go for either timber or steel frame kit homes, though there are also pre fabricated panelling options, as well as pre cut log cabin choices. Steel frames are the most popular of kit homes for a number of reasons, such as being termite proof, fire resistant, and 100% recyclable. Steel framed kit homes also last significantly longer as they won’t rot or be undermined by weather or termites, making them a better investment in the long run.

The big benefit of using timber frames in kit homes is that they require fewer resources to make, compared with the lengthy procedure involved in making steel fames. Timber frames also cost a little less than their steel framed counterparts.

Holiday Homes

Most kit homes are built as somewhere to escape to on holidays, such as a country escape from the city. Rather than pay for accommodation each and every holiday, having your own place to take off to that has all of the luxuries of home, is a significant bonus and something that has made the kit homes a favourite holiday house choice. You don’t need a particularly large house to spend your holidays in, though you want it to be comfortable and spacious too, making kit homes the perfect way to have a great holiday spot without having to spend a fortune. 

Log Cabins

These are the most old school of kit homes and are constructed simply of rows of pre cut logs that can be easily fastened together. For those who want the classic country getaway, this type of kit home is perfect for creating that cosy shelter out in nature, and can provide the ideal escape for those looking for time alone to write or think.

Granny Flats

As families have begun to try and care for their aging parents and grandparents for longer, granny flat kit homes have become increasingly popular as a way to have your loved ones living near you, though not with you. This often extends the period of time that elderly relatives can live autonomously, greatly improving their quality of life, as well as allowing the family to stay living in the same area together for longer.

Enviro Kit Homes

As people have started to become more concerned about their environmental footprint, kit homes have grown in popularity, as not only do they use fewer resources in their construction and building, but they can also be made of totally recyclable materials. You can even get kit homes that utilise solar power and grey water systems, making environmental kit home far superior to ordinary houses in terms of their impact on the planet.

I love the idea of a kit home...so inventive and practical. Not sure if they do them here in the UK though, mostly an American thing I think.

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea
shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell
to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic
but I had to tell someone!

Browsing delicious.com I noticed your web site bookmarked as:
Blogger: My Home Sweet Home. Now I am assuming you book marked it yourself and wanted to ask if social bookmarking gets you
a good deal of visitors? I've been considering doing some bookmarking for a few of my websites but wasn't
sure if it would generate any positive results. Thank you very much.
