What is a modular home?
A modular home is one that is built indoors in a construction facility in sections called modules. The finished modules are covered and transported to the job site, where they are place on a permanent foundation and assembled by a builder. A modular home is not a mobile home; it is simply a home that is built off-site, as opposed to on-site.
How many homes have you built?
Our family has built over 1,300 custom modular homes.
What’s the advantage of modular homes versus site built homes?
Modular homes are built indoors so they are not exposed to the weather. They are built with superior quality because of better materials, jigs, and processes thus significantly reducing mistakes and errors. They are also built in half the time as on site built homes so you can be in your home a lot sooner.
What are the prices of your homes?
Since we are a custom builder it all depends on you and what amenities you want in the home and how big or small it is. We can build a home for less than $100,000 or a million dollar home and anywhere in between. The customers tell us what they want to spend and we work within that budget.
What is included in your typical home?
Our homes include the foundation, basement, house, 2 car attached garage, furnace, air conditioner, water heater, driveway, sidewalk and much more.
What is your typical price per sqft?
Every home we design and build are different prices because we design and build custom homes specifically for each customer. So, the sqft price is all over the board from $120-$180 sqft +/-. It all depends on what you want in a home like flooring, cabinets, brick, etc. Also, it depends on style too such as a ranch, 2 story, or cape cod home and of course how big or small it is. It’s like asking how much is a bag of groceries; it all depends on what’s in that bag that dictates the price. However, for a typical ranch home with full basement, 2 car attached garage, Energy Strength Spray Foam Insulation, Energy Star home, heating/air, quality products, and all while we manage the whole project from start to finish is around $140 sqft. It could be less, it could be more and there is much more included. However, whatever the price is we won't be under sold. We invite you to come into one of our Model Home Centers and talk to a New Home Consultant who will give you a close estimate on how much a home would be based on your wants and needs.
