More and more people in Germany are fulfilling the desire to have their own home with a prefabricated house. In the past year, more than one in five building permits for one and two-family houses was for a building prefabricated in the factory.
At 22.2 percent, the share of prefabricated houses in building permits was higher than ever, reported the Federal Association of German Prefabricated Buildings (BDF), citing figures from the Federal Statistical Office.
Last year, according to the information, building authorities approved almost 106,000 single and two-family houses across Germany. Of these, a good 23,500 houses were prefabricated with wood. That corresponds to an increase of 11.2 percent compared to 2019. The overall market for single and two-family houses, on the other hand, has only grown by 4.3 percent.
In 2020, prefabricated houses made up only 15.2 percent in NRW
Prefabricated houses are not that popular in North Rhine-Westphalia. In the most populous federal state, 15.2 percent of all building permits for one and two-family houses went to prefabricated buildings last year.
In Baden-Württemberg, 38.4 percent of building permits are now for prefabricated houses, in Hesse their share is at least 32.4 percent and in Bavaria 25.6 percent. The prefabricated house rate was only lower in Saxony-Anhalt (11.9 percent), Lower Saxony (9.0 percent) and Hamburg (8.7 percent) than in North Rhine-Westphalia.
