Panelized homes used to bring to mind images of homes that were, shall we say, less than grand. But that was then. Today, Yankee Barn Homes panelized construction system produces beautiful homes with superior energy efficiency. Prefabrication has come a l-o-n-g way since the 1960s and YBH is at the forefront of the panelized build movement. Common wisdom on panelized homes is this: they are higher quality, more sustainable than stick-built, and potentially up to twice as efficient as on-site construction. The later is due to the fact panelized homes are manufactured in a factory where better quality control exists while stick-built homes are created at the construction site. With panelized prefabrication, insulation placement is more exact, and factory produced means there is a tighter seal against drafts, not to mention far less waste. A job site build has a high percentage of waste, all of which is paid for by the consumer.
