Magnificently Built Modular Homes
Modular home construction builds a home almost entirely in a factory. The pieces are brought on trucks to their final destination, and the finishing touches can be done on-site. This could mean big cost savings in areas in the Northeast, where experts say construction costs are skyrocketing.
"Housing is becoming out of reach for too many," says New York Building Congress President Richard Anderson.
Building modular buildings, for residential and commercial use has been around for a number of years
The average savings can be 5% to 20% with modular construction, along with a whole lot of time, and the modular home business has been picking up a lot in the last several years.
Some of the increased business is because we're coming out of the recession and we're seeing more activity, but a lot of is it because modular homes are really catching on.
Modular construction might go a long way toward helping to keep the building industry competitive.
"Innovation in the construction industry is always important because we're the highest cost construction market in the country, and we are encouraging people to look for ways to economize, to look to do things differently, and in a better way," says Anderson.
