Factory-Built Homes Are the Future [Video]

There’s so much media pertaining to green prefab lately, I can hardly keep up!  New World Home co-founder Mark Jupiter was on CNBC recently to discuss modular homes, prefab houses, and the benefits of modular construction relative to traditional site-built homes.  He said, in short: “All houses should be built in a factory. It is the future. And we’re just preempting that and started this company before that future takes hold.”

New World Home, you may recall, is known for modular, traditional homes built to LEED Platinum standards. Examples include this home in Georgia and this home in New York.

The company is currently building six modular homes in the Hamptons and expects to build a shocking 50 homes in 2012, according to CNBC. New World Home typically charges between $165 – $250 per square foot for these green homes.
