Innovation Through Custom Modular Homes
Constructing off-site in a factory environment using modular construction techniques gives many fundamental green advantages over historic, site-built construction. It does this by diminishing site disturbance, cutting down vehicle traffic, and reducing the building costs of modular homes. Building indoors means delays due to weather are essentially eliminated. Materials and supplies are purchased, received and safely held in a dry warehouse so replacement because of weather damage or theft is eliminated. It also means that while your home is being built in the factory, that site development is happening concurrently and significantly reducing the the project timeframe. Modules are carefully sealed at the factory to secure your home while being delivered to your job site.
While construction of your home is happening in the factory, the site development is carried out simultaneously. On site building requires the foundation to be done BEFORE any construction can begin on your new home. Modular homes suffer limited schedule delays due to the elements. Building isn’t interrupted because a lumber yard drops materials arbitrarily around the home site. Your new home is placed on your foundation and secured on day one with little to no possibility of harm from theft. Your custom home is provided with the finishes you selected at a level of quality that can’t be matched with onsite construction. You get to move into your new home more quickly and with confidence in its construction which contributes to a healthy living environment.
