Build a New Home ON SCHEDULE

20 January 2012

Do you know anyone who has ever built a new home or done a major addition? If you do, they surely told you that it was a stressful, long experience.

Not when you build a modular home. Traditionally built homes fall victim to scheduling problems regularly which holds up construction of the home. The people you know who have built a new home probably told you that the project did NOT finish on schedule.

Not so with modular homes. Modular homes are built with strict standards and time lines in a factory, and are delivered to your building site essentially completed. Traditionally built home have sequencing issues, if the framer doesn’t show up then the electrician can do his work, which means the plaster is delayed so the painter can’t come. This is S.O.P with a traditionally built home.

If you want a home built to high standards, with a set budget within a specified and adhered to time line with much less stress; contact Avalon Building Systems for information on modular home construction.

So Many Benefits of Modular Home Construction

13 January 2012

Understanding that modular construction adheres to the many national building codes as well as state and local building codes throughout New England and New York, modular construction is faster, more efficient and less expensive than traditional stick built construction. But there are many other benefits to modular home construction as well.

Modular homes built in an assembly line production process in a factory, using the highest level of quality control. Because of this, labor is used very efficiently as well, which drives down costs.

Additionally, the modules are built before the site work is done and without the constraints of weather and contractor schedules. Because of this, modular homes are built much more efficiently than a traditionally built home, again keeping the modular home costs down. Because of the way modular homes are constructed, there are no additional costs for weather and scheduling issues, material replacement or increased labor costs.

Typically, modular homes use 30% more lumber than stick built homes making them stronger than most frame houses. Because modular homes are transported, the floors and walls are screwed together and glued together.

Modular Homes are Cost Effective Construction

6 January 2012

The cost savings of modular construction begins in the factory. With modular construction, 80% to 85% of your home is completed in the factory before it is every delivered to your building site.

The buyer avoids the risk of having their price inflated by change orders, because the modules are built in the factory under strict inspection.

On-site injuries are less common as well since most of the labor for the project is handled in the factory.

The cost of stick built homes can be driven up because the materials are exposed to unfavorable weather conditions during the construction process, especially in the winter. With modular construction, there are no weather delays, weather damage or stolen materials when the construction is performed indoors.

Modular home construction stays constant. And, with factory built homes, the construction time is greatly shortened. Therefore, homebuyers benefit from both fewer payments on construction loans and less labor pay for workers on the site. All of these savings are passed on to the home buyer.

Weather Has No Effect On Some Winter Home Construction

16 December 2011

So you have surely seen the commercials suggesting a car for the holidays; how about a home for the holidays. Ok, that is a little extreme, and it won’t be built by the holidays, but you can build a new home in New England in the winter.

The best advantage to building a new home in the winter around here is the lack of lead time. If you have wanted to build a new home, this may be the perfect time. Many people are discouraged about building in the winter because of the weather. Inevitably, snow and wind will affect the supplies and cause labor delays.

Here is the good news; weather is irrelevant in modular construction. The individual modules are constructed indoors in a factory, and are then transported to your building site. The home is assembled that day, and within a few days, the home is sided and “buttoned up”. When you build modular, your home  is protected from the elements from start to finish.

Still have questions about winter construction? Contact Avalon Building Systems for more information.
