Today we have the pleasure to welcome Mark Young from Texas Portable Buildings.
Can you tell us a bit about the industry?
Portable buildings have become quite popular in so many places over the last few years especially in the USA. These are houses or structures that are built and designed to be flexible to move; it is not permanent. Mobile homes are referred to as portable buildings as they can be moved from one place to another while migrating or when there are needed elsewhere. The need for fast and easy housing brought the rise of these building in the mid-1900s.
At first, it was used for construction workers but today it is possible even for families to acquire these buildings. Classrooms, offices, clinic, storage spaces these are all ways in which they can be used aside from being residential structures. They are provided with the necessary amenities you will require according to the use you need it for.
What are the advantages in buying these transportable homes
These structures come with a few advantages of their own. These buildings are built in the factory making them healthy and safe. The environment is less polluted since there is less noise and no vehicle traffic. They are also entirely recyclable since they can be dismantled and built a new. The materials used are ozone friendly therefore there is minimal impact to the surrounding environment.
An excellent example of portable structures can be a granny flat. Some granny flats are portable since it is some extra room in your home. They are mostly placed in the backyard of your family house. It is simply an extension to your main house. It is usually a self-contained building. The best part of these buildings is that they are versatile to anyone who needs them. These houses can give you the independence you require while you still stay close to your family.
Who are they best suited for?
They are mostly suitable for parents and grandparents and children moving out of the home. Family members and close friends can also use the granny flats. Some people also rent them out as a source of some extra income.
They are designed well and can be modified and fitted to one’s specifications. They are found in so many models, and one has the freedom to choose their finishes, colours and determine the interior look. They contain a bedroom, a kitchen or kitchenette, a living room, a bathroom and a laundry room.
It is quite easy and reliable to use granny flats. They are also appropriate as it is a step towards building a better world for the future generations. It is done by reducing our carbon prints in any way possible.
