10 Modern Prefab Homes That Cost Less Than $100,000
With a severe housing crisis tightening the vise on major North American cities like Seattle, San Francisco, and Toronto, the need for affordable homes is more pronounced than ever. Prefabricated homes—whether they're modular, kit, or mobile homes—are a well-priced option, and often come with many options for customization. They're also increasingly available in more modern designs, from humble cabins to contemporary tiny homes. Here, we've highlighted 10 prefab homes that can be purchased from various homebuilders in the United States and Canada for under $100,000.
Note: These prices do not include soft costs (like a site survey or geotechnical report) or hard costs (like the cost of purchasing or acquiring land, shipping, and hookups to local utilities). Where noted, pricing may only include the shell of the building.
Price: $60,000 to $80,000
Size: 240 to 330 square feet

The Bonsai tiny home is one of Bamboo Living's many homes that use timber-grade structural bamboo as a building material.

Based in Pahoa, Hawaii, the company seeks to protect and restore the planet by pioneering the use of timber-grade structural bamboo as a tree-free building material.
