We are a bit obsessed with kit homes, why? It's not due to the fact that they are much better than custom built houses or even because they can be less costly than custom or off-the-plan houses. It's due to the fact that they are still under-rated. Unfortunately, kit homes still experience a reputation as “low-cost” houses that all look alike. When we consider a kit home, too frequently we think about a small rectangle-shaped structure that is only suitable for use as a granny flat and not as a home. A look at the types of kit homes offered on the market today should set the record straight.
