After completion at the factory, each home is shrink-wrapped and loaded onto a truck for direct site delivery. A crane drops the modules into their foundations, and the homes are ready for final detailing within a few days. “One huge advantage of prefab is you can also do your site work in parallel, so while the house is being fabricated you can prepare your site,” says Jerry. The result is not only ease of construction, but quick, start-to-finish scheduling. This means less impact on the environment, less harassment for the neighbors, and most importantly, less stress for the homeowner. Marmol Radziner has found this to be particularly beneficial on sites where land is pricey or the neighborhood dense. “Depending on permitting and customization,” says Jerry, “you can have the entire process done in less than a year.” In building terms, this amounts to nearly instant gratification.
