Living Homes Plant PreFab Factory Tour

Today you can still order your home from a factory like home buyers who ordered from Sears during the years of 1908 to 1940!

I recently had the opportunity to tour modern prefab homes under construction, designed by LivingHomes, at the Plant Prefab Factory in Rialto, CA.  Tours are offered at 10 AM every Wednesday or on one Saturday each month.  Sign-up on their web site.


LivingHomes has several different standard homes from an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) to a  2-story home with 4,200 square feet of living space.   The standard prehab homes can be customized to fit your every need.  Living Homes can also design you a custom prefab home too.  The homes are designed to be green, healthy and sustainable.

Construction time is 50% less and can even cost less than typical home construction.  The homes are built at the same time the land site is being prepared with the utility connections and the foundations installed.


My personal favorite on their web site is LivingHomes C6.1, 1,288 square feet prehab home,  3 bedrooms and two bathrooms!   This unit was under construction on the factory floor.  It had a very spacious feeling, wrapping around its courtyard with the main living area in the middle, separating the master suite from the two guest rooms on opposite sides.


In addition to Living Homes, there are numerous other prefab home builders to choose from including:
