Whilst the word “prefab” might bring to mind post-war housing, inexpensive temporary accommodation and breezy mobile classrooms, the truth is that many people around the UK live in newly-renovated prefab homes, or even their modern equivalent - far removed from the popular image of the ‘40s buildings.
Prefab houses have come a long way since the 1940s and ‘50s, with surviving models being converted and renovated into modern homes, whilst present-day companies now produce affordable modern pop-up houses suitable for any need in any location. Though original post-war prefab houses were built with a 10-year lifespan, many are still lived-in today, albeit with a few repairs and some asbestos removal along the way.
Although it is estimated that the number of post-war prefabs in the UK has halved each year since 2001, people are increasingly turning back towards modern prefabricated buildings as a quick and affordable alternative to self-builds and brick and mortar housing. Modern prefabricated houses can be quick to assemble, easily customisable and often provide a stylish home with all the usual mod cons – perfect for getting that first foot on the property ladder or branching out into something a little different from the norm.
Despite prefab homes being a staple of British housing for the past 70 years, insurers still regularly class them as “non-standard risks”, meaning that many won’t provide you with prefabricated home insurance, and those that do will hike up their premiums.
