Traditional Construction Labor Shortage Causes Decline in Quality and Increase In Price

Part of the fall-out from the slowdown in the home construction industry is the fact that a large volume of home building craftsman and laborers have left the industry.  This labor shortage serves only to significantly increase the already strong comparative value of custom modular homes over traditional construction

An executive from TC Modular Home's supplier, HandCrafted Homes (Henderson, N.C) says the differential in price between modular homes and stick-built “has sure tightened” as subcontractor labor has gotten scarcer and more expensive.   Realize also that fewer traditional home building laborers means the volume of quality laborers has significantly declined as well.   Those who purchase traditional stick built homes really are buying a box of chocolates....they just don't know what they are going to get.

But you know what you are getting from your TC Modular Home selection.  Our builder enjoys the benefit of a skilled and stable labor force manufacturing high quality homes to the strictest of industry and company standards.  We're so proud of our products (such as our Cape Cod Concord and the Chapel Hill Ranch)  that we actively encourage prospective buyers to tour the Handcrafted Homes factory.  You'll know exactly what you are going to get and when you are going to get it.  Our average delivery time averages an amazingly short 60-90 days.  You won't get that efficiency out of any stick builder.
