Kit Houses

Chronology 9 21st c. Modular


Technology, culture, and economics continue to shape the small house of the twenty-first century. Modular construction, which acquired a reputation for bland sameness during the building boom of the mid-twentieth century, today is applied to high-end, architect-designed homes as well as more modest homes. Like their predecessors, modular house companies promise customers savings in time, money, and newly important today, energy efficiency.
