Modular Home Construction FAQ's

30 January 2021

Modular Home Construction FAQ's - Nantucket, MA

We thought we’d address some of the consumer FAQ’s that we receive regarding the modular home buying and construction process. We do this out on our ”why buy a modular home webpage”, but thought it would help many of you by posting them here on our blog. So first, the process:

  • You choose your home and options
  • A contract is signed contingent on financing and a small deposit
  • Plan revisions are made and new engineered floor plans are drawn
  • You close on your Construction-Permanent loan
  • Your basement or crawl space foundation is built
  • We release your home for production
  • We set your new home
  • Finish work of your new home is completed

How complete is the home when it is set?

Depending on the floor plan and style, between 75-85% complete.

How long does it take to finish the home after it is set?

About 4-6 weeks.

Will you build my garage and/or porches?

Yes. However, this may be at an additional cost.

What is the difference between a Modular Home and a Mobile Home?

Mobile Homes - built to a lax code with generally substandard building products (when compared to modular or site-built homes). Built on a steel frame to hold it together, most have wheels.

Modular Homes - built generally to the toughest codes required in the state, built out of the same type of building materials and name brands you would find in site-built homes. There are no steel frames underneath, only an approved floor system. There are no wheels of their own, they are transported and then lifted off the transporter and set with a crane.

How much do modular homes cost?

As with stick-built construction the cost of a modular home in Newport News will vary depending on what you put in the home and the style of the home you choose. Modular home prices compare favorably with an equivalent site-built home.

Can modular floor plans be customized?

Yes. There are standard floor plans of course; however, floor plans of each style home can be customized, as well as the amenities inside the home.

MODULAR HOMES: Downsizing: Reduce Your Footprint, Improve your Quality of Living

15 November 2020

MODULAR HOMES: Downsizing: Reduce Your Footprint, Improve your Quality of Living in Boston, MA

Modular home solutions are ideal for those wishing to downsize living space. As the median age of America steadily increases, downsizing has become one of the leading needs for new home construction. Modular home construction offers much better value as compared to traditional stick-built home construction. This is true in terms of both quality and cost.

In terms of quality, modular home construction is made of superior raw materials and construction methods. They are partially built in a factory setting with the primary phases of the modular home building process made in factory computer controlled modules . This means that those modules are subject to quality control inspection that far exceeds the traditional home construction at site. These processes are not subject to weather or other external factors, all things that contribute to the modular home construction process being much more time efficient than the traditional home building process.

In terms of value, the precision and climate controlled elements of modular home construction results in the elimination of waste. Waste is a factor built into the traditional home buying pricing model. We enjoy the luxury of not having to charge you for waste that is not going to occur. We celebrate the ability to offer more home (well in this case, less home by sq/ft) for the dollar and thus empowering you to enjoy large portions of your existing home equity to be used elsewhere. You win, and by so doing, we win.

For more information on how to downsize smartly, contact Avalon Building Systems.

Modular Home Construction: Visually Stunning, Structurally Superior

Modular Home Construction: Visually Stunning, Structurally Superior

We continue to pound the gavel for modular home construction because it is now inarguable that there is no better value alternative for new home construction. Value is measured by cost per square foot, customization options, structural strength, energy efficiency, precision engineering, and speed of construction. Add all those things together and traditional stick-building solutions don’t hold a comparative candle.

We humbly submit that we play a major part of the increasing popularity of modular home construction in Williamsburg. The cost savings can be significant, up to 30%. The benefits of a modern assembly line, low waste, reusable designs, and bulk material buy savings bring down the costs for new modular homes.

Modular construction offers shorter, more predictable building schedules. The home is constructed on a set schedule from the factory. When it is delivered to the property, it can be weather tight the same day. The amount of effort to finish and move-in is minimal and the time and stress is reduced. In fact, Modular homes can be constructed in as little as 12 weeks. This is due in part because modular homes are built indoors using full-time indoor crews. As a result, modular companies do not suffer any shows, bad weather, and other common time concerns of the traditional contractor.

We know, a lot to digest here, but come by and we’ll explain all these things in detail. Opening the eyes of the home buying consumer is a priceless benefit of being a professional modular home building company. Contact Avalon Building Systems anytime.

Modular Homes Deliver Significantly Higher Quality AND Value

24 September 2020

Modular Homes Deliver Significantly Higher Quality AND Value in Weston, MA

With continually advancing modern modular construction technology, the quality difference between it and traditional stick-built homes have never been more significant. It stands to reason that as a result, the demand for modular home construction is skyrocketing. Anyone considering new home construction in Weston, MA needs to educate themselves in the modular home construction process to understand how this process can deliver significantly higher quality and value.

The process of modular construction delivers a project completion date and precision construction that traditional craftsmen simply cannot duplicate. A significant percentage of the modular home construction process is precisely computer-controlled indoors in a factory-style setting. Computer-assisted construction delivers a level of precision that human craftsmen simply cannot meet. This process vastly reduces waste and errors which are often hidden in the traditional stick-built process. Additionally, computer-assisted construction is significantly faster, delivering a completed project often in half the time. Saving time equals saving money.

With a traditionally stick-built home the frame construction cannot begin until after the lot is graded, the site is set, and the foundation is poured. With modular home construction, the modules are being constructed indoors in conjunction with the start of the site work. Speed of buildout is just one advantage of modular home construction.

If you think you have never seen a custom modular home before, you actually most likely have. To the naked eye there is essentially no discoverable difference in appearance between a modular and traditionally built home. The difference will be seen in energy efficiency, sturdiness, qualty of materials and quality of construction. Be prepared to be amazed at the difference our award-winning custom modular home process can deliver in superior quality and cost-savings value. Let us personally explain and demonstrate this to you. Contact Avalon Building Systemstoday to talk about your new home construction project.
