Reasons to Invest in Prefab Modular Cabins
The commodities of modern living are something that we shouldn’t take for granted, but there comes a time in every man’s life where he gets a little bit overwhelmed by all of the frequencies that are ringing in our ears constantly reminding us to stay busy and focused. To go big or go home.
This is why it is always a good idea to invest in a space where you can unwind and slow down time which nowadays seems to be passing by quicker and quicker. Lately, more and more Aussies have started using modular spaces as either temporary and more often than not, permanent housing solutions. According to many, prefabricated modular cabins are the future.
A modern modular cabin can also be a stunning piece of architectural art. These units have been getting a lot of traction on the internet these past few years, as a huge refreshment to traditional architecture. Modular spaces are not only more cost-effective, but they are also constructed on an off-site location where the manufacturers make sure to tailor the space to match their customer's exact needs.
Content creators across Australia and New Zealand, like Bryce Langston, have been on a mission to explore the wonders of modular and minimalistic living, showing us that there can truly be many benefits to living in small prefab cabins. With this in mind, I put together a list of some of the ways you can benefit from investing in a modern modular cabin.
The Simple Life
The main reason why owning a modular cabin space is so popular is because it grants you the freedom to seclude yourself away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This is one of the reasons why more and more people love spending time in their modular cabins out in nature. If you're looking to establish a closer relationship with the great outdoors, owning a modular cabin can be the start of a truly transformative experience.
Ready for Occupancy
Upon delivery, your modular cabin will be immediately ready for your interior design endeavors. This is one of the most common reasons why so many people choose to go modular. Depending on what you want to use that space for, there are various companies on the market that offer interior design services strictly meant for smaller homes since the dawn of the tiny house movement.
No Planning Permission Required
If your modular cabin is of the smaller size, meaning it doesn't fall under the 'living space' category, you may not be required to get a planning permit from your county. There are many loopholes that you could look into, but it would be probably best to consult with a government official before taking this route.
One of the biggest benefits of opting for prefab cabins is the flexibility to expand and modify your space. Do you want to get a prefab beach house that in the future you could potentially expand to fit your entire family? Or, are you starting a business and you need to create more workspace in a cost-efficient way? Whatever your case may be, investing in premade cabins could be just the right solution.
The modern-day aesthetic of the architecture around us has evolved over the years. Nowadays, we get to see more and more houses and buildings designed with a very minimalistic approach that oozes calmness and serenity. Choosing a modern modular cabin can not only be an adequate housing option, but it can also be the epitome of modern art. By decluttering your surroundings, you are also decluttering your mind.
Prefabricated cabins are often off-grid by default. This might sound like a challenge to many, but there’s another way to look at this. By being off-grid, you have the power to make smart choices about the way you are going to incorporate water and electricity into your modular cabin.
Harnessing the power of the sun is a great way to go greener, save up, and become more mindful about the way you use electrical appliances. You can also try to collect rainwater to use in your toilet, water your plants, and use it for other everyday tasks.
Faster Production Time
Another incredible thing regarding modular cabins is the fact that they are manufactured much faster (30-50%) than traditionally-built cabins. The production process is where the time-saving magic happens. In the case of regular on-site construction, everything is done layer by layer, starting from the groundwork. In the process of modular construction, however, one crew starts working on the foundation, while another team starts building the actual modules, making it possible to finish the modules and foundation simultaneously.
The whole process takes place off-site and once the unit is finished, it is delivered to the location of your choosing. This means you can schedule the exact time you would like to get your new modular home, thus avoid getting involved in the entire construction process and enjoy the end product.
There are many businesses across Australia, New Zealand, and the rest of the world that specifically work on modular cabin mass-production. Since the production process takes place in controlled areas that are not affected by the elements, everything goes faster. Plus, workers don't have to travel every day to get to your property to work on the cabin, which means less time and money is spent on daily commutes.
What would be your approach to living in a modular prefab cabin? Would you make your space sleek and modern by incorporating all of the perks of modern living? Or, would you remain off the grid and focus on spending your time in nature?
