When you say modular homes are built under "controlled" conditions, what do you mean?

Modular homes are designed, engineered, and built in a factory setting. They are constructed by trained specialists in climate controlled buildings with lumber and other materials that have been kept out of the weather. This adds quality and efficiency, ensuring that your home will be built on schedule, and eliminates the possibility of damage, delays, and potential mold issues caused by rain or other job site conditions.

What other differences between the two types of construction are there?

Not many. Most homes that are stickbuilt could be built as a modular and modified on site as needed. A couple of big benefits of modular built homes are price and time. It is typical to save approximately 20% on the price of a modular home over the price of a stickbuilt one, and have your modular home delivered in eight weeks or less!

Are modular homes built as well as stickbuilt homes?

Often times better. Modular homes have to meet local, state, and national building codes. They face third-party inspection to ensure this. And by the very nature of how they are constructed, they are inherently stronger. And remember, all modular homes are indeed "custom" -- unless you buy a lot model! The floor plans, choices, options, colors, etc are all individual for each project.

How long does it take to get a modular home, and when can I move in?

We work closely with you to plan and design your floor plan, have the modular company design your blueprints, and then, when all choices have been made, we sign off on the plan and put it on the production schedule. Your modular home arrives ready to be set on your site in 8 weeks or less. It then takes approximately 4-6 weeks, depending on the amount of customization, i.e. site built garages and/or porches, etc., to bring your new home to completion. Depending upon the size of your home, the details and customization, you can move in anywhere from 3 weeks to 2 months.

Can I customize a modular floorplan?

Absolutely! EVERY modular home we sell is custom in that walls can be moved or removed, cabinets can be configured to meet your needs and wants, and all colors and choices are made by YOU the CLIENT! It is rare that modular home buyers don’t modify existing floor plans to suit their individual needs and tastes. For example, you can move walls, add bathrooms, change kitchen layouts, and flip floor plans left to right to fit your lot.

Yes, in combination with our lenders, we can create an individual land/home package especially for you. This gives you the ability to put the home you choose on any lot you choose. That way your choices are unlimited rather than limited to a few lots in a subdivision owned by a modular dealer.
