The two types of prefabricated cabins are modular building and panel building. These cabins bear distinct differences though they fall under the same category, states Modular Homeowners.
Panel building is achieved by laying down the floor and then placing a section of wall into place one at a time. This type of prefabricated cabin is commonly applied in commercial buildings as it's relatively inexpensive to transport and easy to install compared to modules, notes Modular Homeowners. Modular buildings are pre-designed and constructed in separate box-like structures, allowing no room for additional structures such as porches or garages, according to Modular Homeowners.
