Modular homes can be an alternative for people who want to move but cannot find a home to suit their needs.
The modular construction process builds homes in parts, or modules, indoors in a factory setting. They are then delivered and assembled quickly at the construction site. You can have your new house in weeks rather than months.
Because of the time savings and the efficiencies of producing most of the home in a modern factory, modular homes can be a great value for careful buyers.
Follow these tips to help you find a modular home that will fit your needs.
The Modular Home Builder
Your first stop is finding a qualified, licensed modular home builder who works with modular home manufacturers.
These general contractors can handle all aspects of constructing your home. They will make certain that the design meets your specifications and budget. You can custom design your own modular home, choose one of 100’s of modular home floor plans, or you can have an existing floor plan modified to further meet your needs.
The builder oversees all aspects of putting your home together, which includes securing correct permits, site work, plumbing, HVAC, electrical and carpentry work that will occur onsite.
The builder you choose can also help you choose a lender, most modular home builders have established relationships and want to make sure everything goes smoothly for you.
The Modular Home Manufacturer
Once you pick a builder, you can begin to look at styles of modular home floor plans.
Each manufacturer has different options. There are sizes, floor plans and architectural designs to consider. Maybe you would prefer a one-story ranch, two-story colonial home, cape cod or chalet style structure. You can customize the look to meet your lifestyle and budget.
Because these homes are manufactured by using innovative technologies in a controlled environment, the result is a more precisely built home. Weather variations during construction will not impact the building materials or your house.
Manufacturers purchase massive qualities of materials for their factories, so they pass their cost savings on to you.
Typically, construction time takes six to eight weeks. The structure will be delivered and placed onto your foundation. After that, the final process of construction on the home and job site and your are ready to move in much faster than you would with traditionally built homes.
Research the background and expertise of your builder and manufacturer. Look carefully at the features and design of the manufacturer's plans. Your hard work will result in a high-quality home built to last.
