Prefabricated apartments put together assembly-line style may be the future of homebuilding.

At Factory_OS in San Francisco, apartment homes travel along an assembly line and are put together at different work stations.

"What's going on here is a lot of housing construction with a very different methodology. We're building a house more like you'd build a car," Factory_OS CEO Rick Holliday, told KPIX in an interview.
