Currently, between 5-10 per cent of all new homes are prefab and experts predict that number will grow to 30 per cent in the next ten years. "Prefabulous" describes the many systems available for prefabricating all or parts of a new home, compares their advantages and disadvantages and shows beautiful examples of houses built using these techniques. Although all of these "prefabricated" houses look very different, all of them were manufactured partially or almost completely in a controlled factory environment and transported to the home site to be erected. As a group these systems offer a faster, more energy-efficient and sometimes more cost-efficient method of building.
