Magnificently Built Modular Homes
Modular homes are constructed with the support of precision computer-assisted systems engineering precision. In short, this means that your future home fits better together vs traditional home construction. This makes your future home stronger from foundation to roof…a better overall product.
The core structure of modular home construction is accomplished within an indoor automated-controlled setting using computer precision assembly processes. Every module produced within the fabrication center is subject to continuous quality checks. This is fundamentally different from traditional home construction where a team of laborers of varying skill sets work unsupervised for swaths of time. Now don’t misunderstand us here. We’re not condemning traditional home builders and their staff, we’re simply saying the degree of quality control mechanisms in place within the modular home construction industry simply do not exist within the traditional home building industry.
However, systems-built homes do not mean that they are cookie cutter style homes. Modular homes can be custom designed. There are also 100’s of modular floor plans from which you can choose, or you can modify one of those existing plans. Whatever floor plan design you choose, Avalon Building Systems can build that home faster with modular construction.
Speed of construction is one reason that homebuyers turn to custom modular home construction. Modular home modules are built in a climate controlled factory. While construction is taking place, the site crew is building the foundation and tying in water and sewer. When the modules are delivered the modules are secured, the roof and siding is added, and the finish work is completed.
While interest in modular homes is peaking because of the faster construction process, home buyers soon find that modular homes meet and often exceed the standards of traditionally built homes. Modular construction uses more materials than traditionally built homes and those materials are never subjected to bad weather. As a result, modular homes last longer through time and weather.
Modular construction offers you the ability to build a high quality, custom designed home, faster. For more information on modular home construction, contact Avalon Building Systems.

Cape Cod Style homes are a popular choice due to their compact design. The design of these homes offers maximum living space, storage space, dormers, and pitched roofs on the second floor. However, oftentimes, with stick built Cape homes the second floor framing is usually less insulated due to its proximity to the roof which can often cause air leaks. A well-insulated Cape style floor plan is often a challenge.
Modular home construction in Boston, MA offers numerous options and a wide variety of customization for homeowners. This option enables homebuyers to choose the right material for insulation and ventilation as effective solutions to heating and cooling problems. The modular floor plan also allows for changes in insulation down the line. Modules are prefabricated using standardized and quality controlled processes in an offsite factory. These modules are assembled at the permanent site and are glued and screwed, making the entire home more efficient as well.
The sectional approach to modular construction provides effective solutions to modern issues that have arisen in home designs. Saving energy costs in areas with extreme weather patterns is one of the issues that modular construction has addressed. Cape style modular homes are energy-efficient whereas traditional methods are having difficulty implementing the same energy efficiency. Insulating a Cape Style home has never been this fast and easy. To find more about Cape style modular floor plans, contact Avalon Building Systems.
The question often arises: Do modular homes appraise for the same value as a traditionally built home? Simply put, yes, and often times higher!
In order to buy a home, it must be appraised so you can begin the process of getting a mortgage or loan. An appraisal is the estimated amount a home buyer can expect to pay for their new home. When buying any piece of property, including modular homes, you need a licensed professional appraiser. The question then becomes, if the home is not yet built, how is it actually appraised?
The appraiser will inspect the modular home plans to have an idea of how much your new home should cost. Generally, they use information on labor rates, building costs, and depreciation and appreciation locally where the property is being built. The appraiser will use sales comparisons, prices and values of compatible homes sold in the area, to determine the current value of the modular home.
Once a thorough analysis of the property has been completed, a report is created which is used to initiate the mortgage or loan process. Included in the report would be the property specifications, the replacement cost analysis and the above mentioned comparative sales analysis.
The replacement cost analysis is the total amount spent on the construction and materials of the modular home, and the lot value.
All this will determine the current total value of the property. The modular home appraisal will then be finalized so that the loan transaction can take place. The calculated total value of the modular home will help you determine future expenses such as utilities and real estate taxes.

We field the typical questions regarding financing and insuring modular home construction that our fellow stick builders get. The questions, issues, and processes are exactly the same. Rest assured that we’ll ensure and guide you every step along the way.
Many banks (and we have great relationships with lenders across Boston) value working with modular home buyers. Why? The building process is so much shorter, and the system is so defined that there is little to no risk to the banks.
As far as assessing the value of modular homes; modular homes are assessed in the same way as traditionally built homes. Here is the good news: modular homes cost about 10-15% less to build, but they sell at the same price as a stick built home. Why? Custom modular homes are appraised with the same standards of a traditionally built home; therefore, both types of homes are assessed at the same amount.
Banks and insurance agencies both say there is no difference between stick-built homes and custom modular homes in terms of approval ratings, and cost.
Banks and insurers are well aware that modular home construction strength and building standards exceed that of traditional stick built homes. There may even come a time where insurance companies take into consideration the higher structural integrity of a modular home and insure them at a lower rate.
However, until then, you can rest assured, modular home construction financing will not be a problem; modular homes hold their value in the same way as traditionally built homes; and ensuring your modular home will be no different either. Now that those questions have been put to rest, contact Avalon Building Systems for more information.
Many homeowners postpone their home construction plans as the fall and winter kick in, due to weather concerns and delays. Weather absolutely comes into play with traditional construction. However, cold and wintry weather challenges are largely mitigated when choosing modular construction. With this choice in home construction, it is possible to make solid home building progress throughout the worst of winter.
With modular building systems there are no weather delays associated with the modular home’s fabrication process. This is because the modules are built indoors where the weather condition cannot affect the process or the building materials. Site work is done at the same time and can be done on choice weather delays without delaying construction. When the modules are completed, they are then delivered to the actual site. The remaining 10% of the home building process, the final assembly and finishing touches, are performed. So in just a matter of 5-6 weeks, your modular home is completed and ready for occupancy.
If you are planning to build a home this winter, choose to build a modular home. You can pursue this path to a new home during any time of year. Contact Avalon Building Systems right away to get started with your dream home.

Our prayers go out to all those effected by the horrendous tornados that ripped through the American heartland. While very few things can stand up to direct hit from a F3, F4, or F5 tornado, the more common windstorms that occur frequently here in Portsmouth can do damage to your home as well. You significantly reduce the threat of storm damage to your home when it is constructed with modular home construction technology.
At the core of the modular home advantage is the fact that our homes are bolted together. Unlike traditional built homes that are nailed together, it is simple to envision which of the two types of construction is better prepared to stand up to mother nature. This is particularly meaningful for those homebuyers who will reside in extreme weather areas like us here in Westwood. Modular homes here in Westwood handle the strong northeast storm winds and the high winds associated with various named storms. A number of severe storms devastated the Northeast several years ago and it caused property damages reaching billions of dollars. We can expect more of that in the future.
The safe and sturdy nature of Avalon Building System’s modular homes are just two of the countless benefits of modular construction over stick-built homes. We welcome the opportunity to discuss the long list of advantages to include how modular homes provide optimal energy efficiency with low air infiltration so you will significantly lower your energy consumption and energy cost.
