Eco-Friendly Modular Homes

Top 5 Eco-Friendly Modular Homes Under $350,000

Since this is an eco friendly blog, it’s only natural for me to share some Earth friendly modular homes I’ve come across. I love these because of the simplistic design, the “green” value, and the price. Prefabricated homes, or prefab homes, encourage an environmentally friendly value because they use less space and materials than traditional on-site constructed houses. Thus, leaving a smaller ecological footprint. Green architecture is beautiful and doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

All of these houses are constructed utilizing off-site modular technology. Some offer additional floor plans. All prices listed are the estimates given by the company for the home itself. Remember there are other costs including delivery (some might not be available in your area yet), installation, and construction work on site. Be sure to consider these all in before making your choice.
