Combating Misinformation from Traditional Home Builders about the Modular Construction Option

Combating Misinformation from Traditional Home Builders about the Modular Construction Option - Boston, MA

As Americans increasingly turn to custom modular homes vs traditional stick-built home construction, the stick-built home industry continues to further false narratives about modular home construction. To the traditional home builder fighting for your business, the less you know about the benefits of modular home construction, and sadly, the more you are purposely misinformed, increases the chance that you will make the costly decision to forgo a deep dive into modular home research. That, my friend, could be one of the costliest decisions of your life.

The custom modular homes that we build throughout the greater Boston area are a modern alternative to traditional on-site construction. The initial construction work is done in an off-site, environment-controlled factory. They offer a more cost-effective and time-convenient approach to building your dream house.

Although main components are manufactured in precise computer-controlled warehouses, they have absolutely nothing in common with the mobile home industry. Custom modular homes are in fact stronger and more efficient than the traditional stick-built home. After the custom-designed modules are crafted in the factory, the individual modules are transported to the building site. They are then bolted together with a precision fit. We need you to understand this. Bolts are stronger than nails. There simply is no comparison between the strength and rigidity of the custom modular home versus a traditional stick-built home. Our on-site craftsmen apply their traditional trade skills to finish the home, protected by a rock-solid frame.

We offer custom-designed floor plans that you can modify to match your preferences and requirements. Thus, every house constructed this way has features that are unique with the rest. Your imagination is your limit for your dream house. Once they are done, these custom-built modular houses are stronger and more efficient than any traditionally constructed house. Modular home construction is more affordable as well. All things considered, custom modular home construction is a win/win in every home building decision avenue.

Explore our gallery of floor plans then contact Avalon Building Systems to learn how it can be customized to meet your every want and need.

Why Choose A Ranch Style Floor Plan Even If You May Need More Space in the Future - Lexington, MA

With the abundance of home styles out there, each with their own pros and cons, it can be challenging to decide which style of home to build. Are we best served by a single-story ranch-style floor plan, a traditional two-story modular home plan, a cape cod modular home, or something else. All styles have their own benefits to offer. We are here to help you decide on why to choose the former though. Today, let’s discuss the benefits of the ranch style home.

Ranch style modular homes like those we build throughout Lexington includes a shared space on the ground floor with several bedrooms and bathrooms. These private areas are usually separated by the kitchen and dining space or the living room. Because of such set-up, it becomes easier to heat the entire house so you will achieve increased energy efficiency. Heated and cooled air naturally flows through the ranch-style floor plan in contrast to the multi-story house plans that require more complex and often more costly HVAC systems.

If you have not decided yet about how many floors to have in your home, it is best to choose to custom-build a ranch first. This single-story floor plan has a living space that can be easily expanded come that time when you want to add more floors. Assuming you have a large enough lot, you can actually expand your ranch with the help of the wide array of options for customization that modular home construction provides. You can then add a deck, patio, or sunroom to your single-story floor plan. If you have more than one floor, it will not be easy to have these home additions because it will require you and your home builder to first conduct a structural analysis and careful planning for expansion.
