-- The Washington Post recently published an article spotlighting the value of prefabricated homes. While many important points were made, including the high degree of quality that such homes offer to buyers, one of the most pressing matters discussed in the article is the relatively low environmental impact that prefabricated properties have. In fact, this field within the construction industry is known for its ability to provide an avenue to homeownership that decreases the environmental impact of the construction process.

, a leading prefabricated modular home manufacturer, explains the ways in which its operational practices can minimize the harm that a home does to the environment.
According to the article, one of the most notable "green" features of prefabricated housing is the fact that it does not create as much waste as traditional construction processes. Sheri Koones, who has written four books on this type of housing, remarks: "Prefab homes are much more efficient and environmentally friendly. There is so much less waste in the manufacturing process. Any excess materials can be recycled into other homes or sent back to the manufacturer instead of ending up in the dumpster."
Additionally, Koones notes, the ability to shield these homes from the elements during the construction process means that they can prevent mold, rot, and bacteria from presenting problems in the future.
Homes by Vanderbuilt agrees with these assertions, noting that the working environment, not just the natural environment, benefits from the prefabricated process. The article reminds readers that prefabricated homes are often constructed indoors. Because they are built in modules, Homes by Vanderbuilt explains that the professionals who are putting the homes together are able to stay out of the elements and work in a more comfortable setting.
The article concedes that many people are still wary of the environmental friendliness of modular homes. To illustrate its point, it calls upon the example set by Greenfab. A company based in Seattle, Greenfab built the first platinum LEED-certified prefabricated home in the state. For three months, it opened the structure to the public to educate residents regarding the value of modular housing--and its minimal impact on the environment.
Homes by Vanderbuilt is encouraged by the attention that prefabricated homes are getting regarding their "green" value. These homes are high quality, environmentally friendly, and often cost efficient resources that allow buyers to achieve homeownership without causing undue harm to the world around them.
