Colorado is truly a nature lovers’ paradise, with something for everyone.
Why Modern Prefab Homes in Colorado?
There are a lot of reasons that modern prefab homes in Colorado are a great idea. With the challenges of construction and building in the state, modern prefab homes are an ideal solution and really the future of home construction. Prefab homes are generally less expensive than a comparable stick-built homes by an average of 10%-20%.
And then there is the weather. In Colorado, the window of opportunity to build an on-site home is small, making construction a valuable commodity. But when you have your home manufactured in a climate-controlled facility, it can be built throughout the winter, and when the weather breaks, it is a much faster process to get your home set and finished. Usually, a stick-built home will take one to four months longer to complete than a modern prefabricated home.
All of this combines to make modern prefab homes in Colorado a truly viable option; whether it’s a home in the suburbs or a cabin in the mountains, a prefab home is a great place to live.

Things to Consider for Prefab Homes in Colorado
Snow load and how your modern prefab home will handle it is an important factor you should take into account when selecting the best home design for your Colorado mountain property. Let’s start off by saying that our homes are made to resist the weather, and our engineering drawings will dispel any doubts you or your inspector may have about this. However, we might suggest the following if and where snow load is a particular concern:
The steeper the pitch of your roof, the easier the snow will slide off. For your Colorado home or getaway, we suggest making the roof of your home as steep as possible. In addition, to provide extra strength, we design your structure with more roofs and closer roof trusses. Contact us for more information.
