Magnificently Built Modular Homes
You have decided that you want to build a new modular home. Now you are shopping for land, or perhaps you own the land already, your existing house is on it. Perhaps you’ve never liked where on the property your house sits, or you just want to change it up. Where should you build your new modular home on the property that you own?
When you first start thinking about this, you will most likely think about how you want your new home to look from the street, and how close you want to be to the neighbors. Your lot's location compared to the surrounding properties will affect your decision. If you have a corner lot, you may need to consider which street you want as your address, or where you would like the driveway.
You also should consider where the sun comes up and goes down in relation to the lot. In New England, taking advantage of natural sunlight in the winter can greatly reduce your heating bills. What you want to do with the yard once your modular home built is also important.
The shape, size, and slope, or grade, will play a big part in where you put your new home. Consider if you’ll need to use stairs to enter your home if you face the front door to the east? If you put the house in below the hill, what do you do when it rains?
Other factors include trees and open spaces, and existing stone walls and driveways.
