Magnificently Built Modular Homes
Most everyone has seen a home under construction. Picture all of that work - framing, drywall, fixtures, and electrical work - going on in a sprawling plant.
Basically, that’s the difference between modular construction and stick-built homes. Quality, style, customizations, design options, floor plans, and size – all of these are the same in modular homes and stick built homes.
Modular homes are different from manufactured houses as well, and the two should not be confused. Manufactured homes tend to be constructed as single units, usually without second levels, and are designed in many cases as affordable housing for lower to moderate income residents.
Modular homes are typically geared toward the middle to upscale buyer. They are two-or-more-story houses, and the second floor modules are lifted by crane to the upper stories by crane.
Modular homes can produce cost savings because they’re built under climate-controlled conditions — no construction delays from weather or material delays. Additionally, because they are built in a factory, there are no labor shortages, and the homes are built efficiently. This allows for not only a price savings, but a time savings as well. Modular homes can be built in 4-6 weeks once the design stage is complete.
