Prefab Houses


Recommended Posts

Just seen a report on this from Chinese investment? Are these going to be the future. Are there any negatives to this? Building industry etc or is there room for both?

Great idea. Great concept. But there is a problem. Housebuilders are too fucking thick to embrace change.

 

Why the fuck it still takes 24 weeks to build a house in a field when in the same time you can get 30 storeys high in steel and concrete in the middle of a city centre I'll never understand.

Deffo sounds interesting. This report was saying it would reduce the cost of a build from 1k a square metre to £400. Obviously I haven't a clue but it seems interesting

Horshit mate. We've not built houses at £50ft2 for 20 years. It saves time but not much cost. Plenty timber frames units going up but that's where prefer starts and stops. For example hotels have a full bathroom imported as a pod from places like Poland. Lifted in, connect the plumbing and wiring and it's done. 10 a day installed when we worked on a park Inn.

Thanks. I thought it sounded a bit radical Edited by tomski
