Green Modular/Prefab

I know this does not seem to make sense… But architects and manufactures have developed green, healthy and sustainable building systems that make sense. Today’s modular offerings have outgrown substandard and toxic mobil home construction. The new prefabs employ high quality construction technologies that meet todays building codes, are made with sustainable and healthy materials, and are easy on the eyes if you enjoy modern design. These prefabs are configured with energy efficient systems and green and healthy core and finish materials.
