Magnificently Built Modular Homes
New home construction is a costly and time-consuming undertaking. But one way to dodge the variables and get a quality home on a short timeline is with modular construction.
As opposed to the regular stick-build construction, where a building is erected on site, the modular approach to construction has each home built as an individual module in a climate-controlled factory, protected from the elements.
This is the major difference between modular homes and stick-built, modular homes have that protection. The largest percent of the construction of modular homes happens in a factory, where units are custom designed with a full kitchen, appliances, full cupboards and flooring.
So the majority of the work is done off site, and the modules are delivered to the site and assembled. On site, the homes are assembled, the drywall is finished, the painting is done, and all the finishing touches.
The indoor assembly allows construction teams to work year-round, increasing production speed significantly. The modules are then assembled together on site with a crane.
The key to modular construction in today’s market is the very, very tight labor market. It’s very tough to find good trades that are consistent and meet your standards. So when something can come to you almost half done, that allows a finished product a lot faster, that is key.
