Kit homes, encompassing modular, manufactured, pre-fab, and factory-built houses, can offer the prospective home-buyer more design flexibility, lower costs, and a wider range of location choices than "site" or "stick-built" homes. This book is a roadmap for anyone interested in building a kit home. It compares the wide range of options available, from ordering house plans to be used for a materials purchase, to ordering complete house kits, to purchasing factory-built homes. There are tools for identifying the buyer's specific wants and needs, and for assessing affordability and financing options. And there is detailed information and a wealth of tips on the construction process itself, from finding the best building site to warranties and maintenance for the finished home. Lists of suppliers, a glossary of terms, recommended readings, and a set of helpful worksheets round out this completely useful and accessible manual.

I was hoping to find a book that had some useful information on real kit homes that one can buy, right now, but this book is mostly lists of manufacturers of modular homes and homes plans companies. There are some useful sections for people who do not know anything about the steps of buying land and or building a home but the title is "Kit Homes" and that was what I was expecting. Good if you want a very broad perspective with 9 year old, out od date statistics and contact information. Not a lot of help if you really want to find a kit home to buy and build yourself..

I bought this book as a simple stepping off point for a build planned in the next 1-2 years. I have only briefly reviewed the book and have yet to fully read the entire thing.

From what I can see at first glance, there is a lot of information in here, some that you can get from your own research, others that I am sure will be of no value. It gives a little history and provides worksheets to help you calculate cost. I am sure these worksheets are available elsewhere, but the book is a nice reference. It provides plenty of contacts for different states and tells you what to look for when you are shopping for your new home. The book seems to be a good reference guide.

Very well researched; good information.

My favorite part of this book is the first chapter, which gives a thorough and accurate history of Sears kit homes in particular and America's kit homes in general. And I'm delighted to report that the publisher allowed me to provide some input, factual date and photos, too.

The rest of the book is also well done with good quality photos, bright colors, handy layout and a writing style that makes the book easy-to-read and comprehend. The text is well written and makes reading both interesting and informational.

I can highly recommend this book, however...DON'T FORGET that it all started back in the early 1900s with Sears, Aladdin and Gordon Van Tine. Those were the first kit homes that swept America by storm.
