Modular homes are currently experiencing a new surge in popularity. Kate Jordan talks to Laurie Raikes of Anchor Homes about the latest developments in the industry.
Stylish, well-built prefabricated homes are a relatively new development; it’s only in the past decade or so that prefab buildings have come into their own.

Also known as modular or transportable buildings, these constructions have recently thrown off their poor reputation.
