The general rule of thumb is that prefabricated buildings are 10% to 25% cheaper than stick houses. why? Since the factory buys consumables in bulk, the mass production of materials on the assembly line reduces costs. Labor costs are also lower because you do not need to send carpenters, plumbers, and electricians to various construction sites. And faster build time can also save money.
You may want to pay a starting fee of $150 to $400 per square foot, and the price sometimes (but not always) includes the internal fixtures of the house. You should pay attention to whether your prefabricated packaging includes appliances, windows, floors, insulation , electrical wiring, and doors.
However, please note that the price of a prefabricated house is not actually the cost of the house. First, you must pay the land cost of building a house, and you must also consider soil testing, site surveys, permits, and utility connections. Depending on the landscape, the cost of preparing the construction site may be relatively small, or it may be very expensive; prefabricated packaging usually does not include the foundation.
Other costs may include landscaping, driveways, garages, and local contractors or builders to complete the house. All of these costs vary-for example, a piece of land and a contractor outside of Boston may be much more expensive than in rural South Carolina.
