When it comes to prefabs, get ready to be amazed at how much can happen in just seven days.

One of the most intriguing ways of building a new dwelling, prefabricated homes are continually growing in popularity due to their high-quality construction offsite and relatively quick turnaround times. Many prefab homes can be designed and built in about four to six months, with the last leg of the work—the arrival and on-site installation—in as little as a few days. Read on as we take a look at five modern prefabs that arrive on site and are turnkey ready in less than one week.

Wheelhaus founder and CEO Jamie Mackay creates prefabs with the same quality and durability of the log cabins he grew up with, while also incorporating his values of green production and modern design. Although it takes about four months to construct his prefabricated properties, it takes about a week for the home to be delivered, and then three to five days for the house to be set up on site.

HiveHaus, a UK–based company, designs modern prefab living spaces for a variety of applications. Their prefabricated modules come in the shape of hexagons, and are adaptable, affordable, sustainable, flexible, and easy to construct. These designs consist of a standardized set of components that can be connected together to create interconnecting clusters. The modules are prefabricated offsite, and can be installed in as little as two days, depending on the number of modules, access to the site, and site conditions.

4. Koda

With a factory in Estonia, Koda produces a prefabricated house that arrives on site as a single unit via a trailer. Their units, which typically feature a lofted space in the back of the module, can be combined for larger homes, or simply used as offices and smaller residences. Once the module has been transported to the site, installation can be as quick as a single day, as long as the required site work has been completed.
