Top 6 Prefabricated Homes in California


California has one of the highest populations in the United States. With its diverse culture, climate and geography, many people find the Golden State the ideal place to reside. But with the high cost of living, it’s quite expensive to build a traditional home. Aside from renting a place, many people opt to have small, modern prefab homes since prefab housing costs are relatively lower than renting or building a stick-build home.
