This is a Prefab arrangement for separate structures

Prefab June 8, 2016

Prefab arrangement for separate structures

After a busy, tiring week work, it is always good to have a space to retreat and relax. And it must be your own home — whether its a prefab house or traditional build or whatever else. Even if there are various places providing solace and relaxation like parks, hotels, spas and vacation lodges, spending your free time at home is still the best experience you can ever have. Homes have their own distinct personal touch and getting your recreation in within your own dwelling is much more valuable than venturing to far distant places.

What’s even better when you’re at home is when you are assured that you are residing to a beautiful abode that’s eco-friendly and requires less monthly bills. This is what iHome prefab houses are! Thanks to Clayton Homes who has built 9 carefully designed lovely prefab homes.

Each prefab home uses bamboo floors, Energy star appliances, energy-saving lights, water saving equipment, fused flooring from renewable sources, and low e-glass windows.

In addition to the features above, every prefab house is set up in low-upkeep and long-lasting materials such as fiber cement panels, metallic siding, and metal tops. These iHome prefabs brag a butterfly roof for rainwater collection. This type of roof leads the rainwater to a hidden tank close to the house.

For their heating and cooling systems, a geothermal heat pump is installed and a solar system on the roof produces power needed for the prefabricated house. In a little while, Clayton Homes are eyeballing to set up a wind turbine which will be fixed to provide energy for the whole house and it will also bring sufficient power to charge a Chevy Volt, which has a socket on the façade of the house.

Aside from these eco-materials and system designed by Clayton Homes, these iHomes have a separate structure next to main house which can be an added space for a bedroom, a home-office or in any other way the family wants.

This separate prefab structure is useful as it provides an extra space to the family. This makes iHomes unique from other prefab houses.

Overall, the space is not very limited, thus, parties, get together and any gathering that is special for families and friends, iHomes can accommodate them. This is what a real home is after all – a dwelling for the family, an area for gathering, a space for comfort, relaxation and whatnot.
