Re: We need more of this type of home

I really like them. I like lots of light, and prefabs is a great idea.
I wish I could see the whole layout.

I wondered the same, Eliza.
I also wouldn't like the lack of privacy.

Re: We need more of this type of home

What we need are bungalows one level living, that would let single people, disabled people and older people downsize and leave bigger homes empty for families. Council housing building and rent caps to allow people on nmw actually find a home.

Re: We need more of this type of home

Bungalows are built on land we have a shortage of land in the uk.
Downsizing is expensive bungalows are expensive and added to stamp duty makes people stay put rather than move.

Bungalows are single story houses don't need to take up any more room than a house and would free up larger houses and be an easier way for many to live.

Re: We need more of this type of home

They take up land .
Whereas apartment living as are retirement homes being built everywhere can put many homes on the same footprint.

If you want unhappy people build flats. Happy people bungalows. Simple choice and we have land if nimbys keep quiet.

Re: We need more of this type of home

Here in Canada, many find what we call mobile homes as an alternative. They are located in a park where you lease the land but own your own home making if more affordable.

Some are used for year round living, others just for the summer months depending on the insulation.

Re: We need more of this type of home

We have them here too but residential ones are as expensive as a large house round here. We have one as a holiday home 8 months of the year so much cheaper site fees.
