They are not prefab homes, but Honsador Lumber LLC offers house kits that include most everything needed to build a home. The possibilities run from a 500-square-foot bungalow to a two-story house with around 2,700 square feet in floor space.

Prices range from $36,000 for the simplest kit to $90,000 for the biggest and most complex package. You need to provide your own foundation slab, but the most complete kits include all framing lumber, windows, doors, cabinetry, plumbing and lighting fixtures. Amenities such as paint, carpet and tile are not included.

Can’t do the assembly yourself? Affiliated contractors, such as Ozzy Naweli of Ozzy’s Construction, will demolish your old home, clear it away and assemble the new one. Naweli says he can finish the whole job in three months.
