Kit housing started in the 1600's. In the early
1900's Sears & Roebuck sold over 100,000 kit homes. Precut materials
and precise instructions created their success.
Looking like ants on a hill, massive
clusters of standardized houses seems depressing. American residences
have become a product, except for those of the wealthy. The reputation
of the industrialized home is cheap and ugly and mimics the stick-built
home. The cheapest available technology avoiding prosecution was destined
for early demise.
Abbreviated cost and time appeal to builders. Often aesthetics, comfort and quality are sacrificed, but not always. There
have been exceptions in history. The last century has revealed a wealth
of practical, attractive alternatives to the status quo. The visions
and the technologies exist. Industrialized homes have the ability
to be well designed, practical, environmentally efficient and affordable.
So why isn't it being built?
The majority of commercial and residential structures are pre-fabricated components. The development philosophy is rapidly transforming vivid and varied landscape with quality and distinction. Most industrialized buildings are inexpensive and functional. The projects that prevail are not innovative or attractive, but the developers and manufacturers profit.
Quite simply, pre-manufacturing is cheaper, faster and more reliable in making large-scale projects. The site and people are perceived as abstract variables - not specifically generators of form and space. The industrialized housing systems have reduced the context and dwellers to the lowest common denominator. Failing to consider the unique factors operating in a human being environment.
