DIY home kits for all do-it-yourself skills
There is a growing demand in the United States for prefabricated flat-panel homes. The DIY home building kits that are already big business in Europe and the UK are catching on in the states like wildfire for homebuyers that are purchasing them. If you’re not familiar with the concept, a Do-it-yourself (DIY) kit is a prefabricated kit you can buy that allows you to purchase and assemble a house on your own. These homes are completely or partially built away from the owner’s actual building site.

The DIY home kits offer some appealing features compared to buying an existing home, especially being able to have one in place on your building site in a very short time. The average traditional home can take three months to a year to construct and be ready to move in, depending on the complexity of the home.
That’s not an ideal solution for many potential homebuyers, especially if they just want a small home. What’s amazing about some of the better DIY’s out there is that you can build a home on your own in a fraction of the time that it would take to build a home of equal size. Some can even be assembled in less than a week’s time.

However, the most interesting ones for the homebuyer that want a home quick and cheap are the Xyla model cottage-style houses that Unity offers. These single-story models can be assembled in a little over three days. Think about it, you can have a house of your own-albeit a small one-in just over three days!
The Xyla starter models range in size from a two-bedroom, one-bath model that is about 1028 Sq. Ft. to a three-bedroom, three-bath model that is about 1591 Sq. Ft. The flat panels of the home are transported to your site by truck and then assembled around a pre-dug concrete foundation with a small crane.
Saving Time on Your DIY
Unity saves a lot of construction time by installing the building’s siding off-site. They use a decorative trim to give it an appealing uniform look instead of a facade of panels strung together that is common in many homes you see these days. The Xyla’s panels are put together on a rustic timber frame that crests in the center. The panels are then put together around the foundation.
Another feature of the Xyla flat panel home that makes it special is its upgradability. You can start out small and then upgrade to a bigger house by adding on flat-panel modules. This gives a lot of pricing options that aren’t available with many static, traditional homes that are on the market.
Also, the longer you live in the Unity home the better your cost savings are because the DIY’s require very little energy to maintain and run. When you get a home from them you are enveloped in a tight and heavily insulated envelope that nearly puts renewable energy options to shame.
There you have it, an energy-efficient house you can build in a short amount of time. It’s really hard to beat a 3-day lead time for a place that is extremely livable like the DIY flat panel kit in this article. You can also upgrade the inside of your completed DIY home using some helpful and creative home decorations tips from a professional (or yourself) to make it that cozy dream house you’ve always wanted.
