In our regular posts we have been talking about how modular home construction can save you money, time and stress. We thought we would share this story with you about a homeowner who wanted to build a new home and made the choice between modular and traditional construction.
Here is an example of how you can save with modular construction.
This particular homeowner, we will call him Joe, wanted to build a custom home. Working with an architect, the custom plans, built the traditional way, had a price tag of anywhere from $725,000 all the way to $900,000 when upgrades, were factored in. And, there were no guarantees it wouldn’t go over budget.
Modular construction gave Joe a different way to build this dream house for a budget under $500,000, in a timeline of four months and with no surprise costs.
Modular homes are also known as “pre-fab homes” and they are highly customizable. Tidewater Custom Modular Homes and other modular companies do customization on some level.
Modular home quality is higher than traditional homes. Modular homebuilders are able to erect modular homes in as little as 30 days, on a budget that averages 5% to 10% less than what you’d spend otherwise. From start to finish — if you include the design process, permitting and finishing work — a modular home can be move-in ready in as little as four to five months, easily half the time spent on a traditional stick-built home.
