Most people think of mobile homes as chilly and uncomfortable. However, mobile homes can be just as warm and comfy as any other home. Along with mobile homes, prefab cabins and cottages can be just as cozy.
Most prefab cabins and prefab cottages contain ventless fire places, which offer warm heat in the winter. They also provide insulation, pipes and electrical wiring. While ventless fireplaces come with their limitations and dangers, you can upgrade to get a more reliable, safer form of heat.
Mobile Homes Don’t Have to Be Unsafe
Mobile homes do not have to contain dangerous materials. Modern mobile homes provide all of the safety features of standard homes. Builders provide top notch service and high quality living spaces in mobile homes, so you no longer have to settle for the substandard living environment you think of when the term “mobile home” comes to mind.
Other Mobile Home Options
If you are looking for a home away from home, you have options other than a standard mobile home. Prefab cottages and prefab cabins are a great addition to your camping regimen.
Prefab cottages and cabins are insulated, wired and plumbed, unlike most mobile home options. They provide all of the conveniences as home, so that your get away feels more like going to your second home.
These modular type homes are created in a factory and are individually built to state standards and codes for where they will be placed. They are then delivered and put together by licensed construction workers that are properly trained in assembling them.
These modular style camp houses are typically sold in package deals that are between 300 and 835 square feet. Larger cabins and cottages are still possible to order, but an additional fee is charged for the custom order.
How You Select Your Prefab Cabin or Prefab Cottages
When you are looking to select one of these options, you sit down with a factory manager, builders and designers to create your prefab home. You will have a lot of options to choose from to make your new home away from home look and feel just the way you want it to.
You will have the option to choose from preexisting styles, or create your own style by upgrading to their additional options.
There are some tips to making the most of a smaller style prefab cottage or cabin that may come in handy when it comes to upgrades.
- Take advantage of vertical space. Use upper lofts for additional storage space. This allows you to make the best use of all of your rooms.
- Keep your cabin square or rectangular. This will significantly reduce the amount of corners that the builders must create. The more corners that are present, the more support the company will need to build your desired structure.
Add as many windows as you feel comfortable with. Not only does the addition of windows reduce the cost of lighting, it can also reduce the amount energy it takes to heat the cabin in the winter months.
