Funky Kit Homes More and More Popular

If the words "kit home" conjures memories of family holidays spent in pokey box-like, pre-fab holiday homes or wrestling with flat pack furniture it is time to change your attitude.

Funky kit homes now provide a flexible and affordable alternative for those looking to build a new house without compromising on quality. From cozy country cottages to modern, green and environmentally friendly designs, kit homes come in all styles and sizes, and can save you thousands.
The great thing about kit homes is that you are not locked into a standard design either - plans can be altered to suit your needs and the demands of a particular building site at little extra cost.
Most people think that a kit home is a rectangle shape box made from cheap materials but that couldn't be further from the truth. Most kit home clients are building large, luxurious homes and floor plans can be single, split or tri-levels or double story with a colonial style finish or the curved roof and sleek lines of an architectural designed home.
The do-it-yourself revolution has seen a resurgence in the popularity of kit homes. Now, the economic times have changed, and people are watching these television shows on renovating and thinking they could actually do that themselves.
The biggest advantage of going with a kit home was the cost saving. Kit homes are designed for owner-builders and handy people, they can do a lot of the work themselves and that saves paying a builder's profits. The way the economic climate is at the moment a lot of companies are doing incredible deals on kitchens and bathroom supplies and auctions are big too so if you are good shopper you can save heaps.
Building with a steel frame allowed people looking at buying a kit home to customize their house design and make additions later without any fuss.
Many kit home designers have deliberately avoided standard design plans for their kit homes, even though it is cheaper because they want to show consumers that kit homes can come in all kinds of funky shapes and sizes. Unlike a project home, where there might be a thousand of the same design in one suburb, a kit home can be a bit more eye-catching.
And because they are not mass produced, you can include more environmentally friendly elements that would cost you a fortune if you tried doing them as part of a project home design.
