A kit home is a type of prefabricated home that is sold in packages containing all the necessary materials and components required for construction. These homes are designed to be assembled on-site by the homeowner, a contractor, or a combination of both. Kit homes come in various styles and sizes, and they generally offer a more cost-effective and time-efficient alternative to traditional on-site construction methods. Due to the standardized nature of kit homes, they often provide a consistent level of quality and energy efficiency.
