Factory construction environment
Modular homes built in massive warehouses are essential “manufacturing plants.” Think of how an automobile is made: each part is manufactured separately and assembled on an assembly line. This is very similar to how modular houses are built. All materials are pre-cut and framed, then made in pieces… all in one large building to keep materials and artisans warm, dry, and protected from bad weather…
Your house is built in modules (hence the name “Modules”) like individual blocks that, when put together, form the complete layout of your home. This is done so that each piece is small enough and sturdy enough to be transported by truck to your property yet large enough to minimize unnecessary walls and support structures. It’s designed to be the perfect blend of form and function, and because it’s all done under one roof, your project won’t be delayed by the weather!
Just like in the car factory, each worker in the factory is assigned a specific job; the window framer only frames windows, and the siding installer only installs siding. Carpet installers aren’t supposed to do shingles – they have shingles experts for that.
This is very different from the usual “on-site” construction process, where a handful of unskilled workers do various things on any given project. They are “Jacks of All Trades, but Master of None.”
Because modular home artisans do the same job, day in and day out, they are VERY skilled and VERY efficient. This means that a professional built every aspect of your home, and they did it quickly and with very little time or materials. This means less money and less waiting time to start enjoying your new home!
Have you ever driven through a construction site when it was raining or snowing? All these building materials that come into contact with the elements soak up moisture, warp the wood, and saturate parts of the building that are meant to be protected from the weather. That can’t be good for building materials, can it?
Right. It is unsuitable for the material and can affect the building itself.
Another benefit of building a modular home in a factory setting is that all the materials used in your new home are protected from the elements – because they are INSIDE. That means your wood stays dry and straight when it’s covered with shingles or shingles, and you don’t have to worry about moisture getting trapped in between.
Precise specs & extra stability
Correction. As we all know, modular homes are built in modules – individual parts of a house will be transported by truck to the site, then put together to form a complete home. As you can imagine, a LOT of logistics are involved in ensuring this process goes smoothly.
Modular home designers and builders must always adhere to exacting specifications to ensure that the parts fit together correctly. There’s no room for mistakes; testing at every critical point in the module building process. These checks ensure that your home modules have the stability needed for trucking over many miles and will fit together seamlessly once they reach their final destination.
Our finishing team will spend a few days on the home’s interior, stitching together the carpet seams, adding decoration, finishing the drywall, connecting the electrical and water lines, and securing the house. Your new satisfaction when you move in.
We can also do additional construction such as porches, decks, or garages at this time – these will be carefully constructed and will attach to your home for a beautiful finished product.
