Benefits of Modular Style Homes

When it comes to building a new home there are many questions and concerns people have. How long will it take, what will it cost me, who should I hire to build my house? These are all valid questions that deserve an honest answer. Although there is not a one size fits all response to these questions, we have compiled some information to help you make a more informed and confident decision.

What is the cost?

Just like on site stick built homes, modular style homes can be tailored to the customers specifications which alters the cost proportionally. However, modular homes tend to be more affordable than site-built homes due to the shorter build time, which will save you money on the overall construction. Modular homes are also much more energy-efficient, so your monthly expenses will be substantially less.


How long will it take to build?

There is a wide variety of homes to choose from, but on average it takes 2-3 weeks to construct the home in the factory. A factory-built home starts out as sections that have been built in a climate-controlled area. The finished sections are transported to the building site and then assembled with cranes. It usually takes 1-3 months to complete the home on site , depending on the size and scope of the project, given there are no significant weather delays.
