Modular Homes – Britain’s Future?

This week we would like to draw your attention to a fascinating article, focusing on the production of modular homes in the UK. The need for new homes in the UK is far from secret, and a new factory opening in Yorkshire hope to tackle the crisis by producing pre-fabricated modular homes. Whilst the homes aren’t currently available for purchase by individuals, it is certainly an interesting step towards tackling the housing crisis facing the nation.

Don’t forget that if you, or a friend, are interested in a new home; we have information on Houses for Sale in the Oakley Vale. Take a look at our sales section to view the fantastic homes available within our Oakley Rise and Lyveden Fields areas.
