In Nairobi, Kenya, prefab homes are becoming a necessity, as discussed recently in an article from AllAfrica.com.
One of the biggest reasons why, is cost.
The cost of construction has become prohibitive in some areas, forcing the powers to be to turn to modular housing.
The shortage of homes and buildings are making efficient, affordable options necessary and prefab homes are becoming the go-to option.
As mentioned above, prefab homes may soon have an even bigger presence in Kenya, mostly because of necessity.
However, there are a few roadblocks, one of the biggest has to do with the perceptions that many people have of prefab, modular housing.
There is a preconception that the quality isn’t as good or a quality alternative to traditional housing.
