Many of us dream about owning a peaceful sanctuary somewhere far away from the hustle and bustle of city and suburban life.
However, our dreams are often mercilessly crushed by outlandish property prices.
Why are holiday homes so expensive? Even those humble log cabins have become a luxury not everyone can afford.
If you’re anything like me, you desperately crave some peace and quiet and can’t help but wonder where you can buy cheap holiday homes?
Since it’s not just you and I who mull over this matter, you’ll be pleased to learn that people have found a pre-fabulous way to escape the concrete jungle without spending a fortune.
I have two words for you. Manufactured cabins.
These innovative prefab structures are not only kind to your pockets, but they’re also kind to the environment.
What’s more, they offer the peace you crave, the comfort you need and the style you dream about.
Freedom to Customise
Yes, I know, you can’t get those dull, mass-produced prefab cabins out of your head, but if that’s the only thing that comes to mind when someone mentions prefabs, you have some catching up to do.
The modern manufactured cabins offered on the market are bespoke, constructed in the highest quality standards according to your preferences and budget.
Whether it’s a simple abode or a luxury holiday home, modular builders can bring your vision to life.
Get More for Less
The reason why modular cabins are way less expensive than their traditionally built counterparts is that they’re produced off-site, in a strictly controlled environment.
This means that you won’t need to pay for excess materials, transportation of heavy machinery or an army of contractors.
Plus, these companies get their building materials in bulk, meaning they pay less and can pass the savings to you.
Another great thing about modular cabins is that they are built in a fixed time frame which means you can start planning your grand escape from the moment you sign the contract knowing that you’ll receive your keys on the agreed date.
Good for the Environment
The quick-built times, affordability and modern designs aren’t the only reasons why more and more people turn to modular cabin builders.
As you may already know, prefab cabins are often described as green, eco-friendly and sustainable, not because it’s trendy, but because it’s true.
Since these dwellings are produced in a factory, they’re an excellent low-impact alternative for remote or ecologically sensitive areas.
In addition, building off-site in a controlled environment allows for strict waste control and prevents piles and piles of excess materials from ending up in a landfill.
Moreover, most modular builders ethically source safe and recyclable materials which don’t break havoc on your health or the environment.
Reduced Energy Costs
Speaking of eco-friendliness, it’s also worth mentioning that modular cabins are incredibly self-sustainable.
They’re designed and installed in accordance with the passive design principles to minimize your need for electricity.
Design elements such as triple-glazed windows, quality insulation and LED lighting ensure you rely less on the grid.
And because these cabins are already optimized to make the most out of solar energy, you can further reduce your impact with portable solar panels and accessories.
It can’t go without saying that producing your own clean energy will also save you some big bucks.
Time to Get Inspired
If you like what you’ve read so far, but you still can’t envision a modular cabin as your dream holiday home, it’s time to get you inspired.
With more and more modern prefab cabins popping all across Australia, you can easily find something that’s right up your alley.
Just have a look at this minimalist cabin situated on the banks of the Murray River in Tintaldra.
It’s beautiful yet functional, completely off-grid and easily maintained.
I mean why would you waste money on a huge holiday house when you can opt for a small, cosy log cabin like this one and use the great outdoors as your living room.
What I like most about this lovely little cabin is that it has a minimal impact on the environment.
With solar panels, a wood fire heater, a septic tank and a rainwater tank, this cosy river hut is incredibly self-sustainable, perfect for eco-conscious individuals.
Love the minimalist aesthetic? I suggest you also check out the Scandinavian style modular cabins.
Scandi cabins showcase the beauty of simplicity. These cabins may be off-the-shelf, but they can be easily customised with popular Nordic add-ons such as saunas.
What’s best about these prefab units is that they offer flexibility. Let’s say you’ve found a new sweet plot up in the mountains.
Instead of building or buying a new cabin, you can easily transport your good old hut to your new spot.
With that being said, you can now start planning your escape from the urban jungle.
Make sure to check out other fabulous cabins online or go for a drive to meet some prefabs in person.
Believe me, you’ll be amazed by how far has modular architecture come.
