As median home prices continue to surge and the shortage of homes for sale grinds on in the Hudson Valley real estate market, buyers are taking a second look at alternative housing options. Not surprisingly, modular and pre-manufactured homes are an option for some. Unlike pre-fab homes from the past, Singapore manufacturer Nestron makes mini-homes that are both inexpensive, and smart in style and technology.
2020-01-15.ModularHome3.jpegNestron recently showcased four different prefab options which come with a built-in artificial intelligence assistant named Canny that controls lighting, heating and security.

Prices start at $19,000 for the baseline Cube model to $59,000 for the top-of-the-line Legend. All four models include one bedroom, one bathroom, a kitchen and living space, all fully furnished with custom  dining table, sofa, TV, built-in bed rack, wardrobe, washing machine, and a water heater. 
2020-01-15.ModularHome2.jpgAll four models meet the requirements to survive earthquakes up to magnitude 6.9, and a level 3 hurricane. The walls are sound insulated up to 55 decibels, better than a five star hotel. The exterior wall material has fire resistance exceeding 2 hours and inner wall with fire resistance exceeding 1 hour.

The homes cover no more than 263-square-feet, but their curved design and full-length tempered glass windows make them feel more spacious.

All models are made with recyclable materials and include hook-ups for gas, water, and electricity. For buyers who are environmentally conscious, Nestron offers a $4,300 solar power panel upgrade to reduce electricity usage. 


The homes come with a 15 year construction warranty, and are ready-to-live-in after a simple utilities set-up. Water, electric, and sewer hookups are customized to fit its destination standards.

Mini-homes like these would also make an economical vacation home for hunting or fishing, and would "out-glamp" any "glamping" accommodations.
