Smart, Custom Designed Modular Homes

More and more homeowners are interested in building a new home. Interest in energy efficiency and custom designs is growing. But custom designed homes are not always a solution for homebuyers of average means. Budget constraints often mean settling for generic or uninspired homes, inefficiency and mid-grade craftsmanship.
Not so with modular construction, as a result, interest in modular homes is increasing.

Modular homes offer alternatives, and modular home builders use a wider range of methods and materials because their clients want key features and efficiency.

Modular housing has been around for decades. Far from being cheap or generic homes, modular floor plans can be completely custom and the quality of construction can easily meet or exceed that of high-end conventional homes.

There are many advantages to modular construction:

  • Fewer weather worries: building modules inside a factory means materials stay clean and dry, and typically reduces the on-site construction time to days. Eliminating rain delays, temperature extremes, wind issues and other weather-related problems saves time and money, and it helps prevent mold and rot-issues later.
  • More consistent quality: Workers building wall sections indoors will have the advantage of using assembly platforms, alignment equipment and other big gear that an on-site crew does not have. They’ll have more tools to process lumber to more consistent dimensions, which means a better fit as the home is assembled.
  • Less risk at the build site: Having fewer delivery trucks and smaller work crews can reduce damage to the building site, and closing the house up quickly helps deter vandalism and theft of materials.
  • Less waste: On-site framing crews often generate a lot of scrap lumber and plywood that gets tossed aside randomly. The material sit to degrade in the weather, tempt vandals or be hauled off to a landfill. The planning that goes into prefab design and construction means most of that “waste” material will be stored inside and used later.

Additionally, modular homes now have levels of energy efficiency that traditionally built homes are cannot match. More coordination and precision during the building process means insulation can be integrated into the floors and walls of the modules rather than getting added on site.
