Foundation & Set

Build a new home, vacation home, or even a commercial building at a fraction of the cost of a traditional build.

We are a Turn-Key modular home builder, so in addition to the modular home itself, we can take care of everything else; from building permits to septic systems, garages, and everything in between. However, if you want to take a more active role in the build, or if you are outside our Turn-Key Service area, Next Modular offers you the opportunity to order a custom modular home and finish the rest of these things yourself.

Our company will pour the foundation and deliver and set your new modular home. You would take over from there, and either DIY the rest of the build (the garage, septic, driveway, etc) OR contract out the labor locally using the subcontractors of your choice. This will save you thousands, since you are not paying a general contractor (us) to coordinate that work for you.

For a very in-depth look at how this works, check out our Foundation & Set process page.

What You Need to Know

Anything other than the home and foundation will need to be accounted for, including HVAC, well, septic, outside electric main/gas hookups, landscaping, driveway, etc.

Our Foundation & Set service is perfect for those who like DIY projects or “know somebody” who can do it for them. Even if you don’t want to do it yourself, you can contract out the work locally, using the subcontractors of your choice, which will save you money since you are not paying a general contractor (us) to coordinate that work for you.

These are some of the items not included in our Foundation & Set service.
  • HVAC system (furnace and A/C)
  • Building a garage or porch
  • All utility connections such as the well or water main hookup, sewer system and drains under the home, electric service and hookup, gas service and piping hookup,
  • Tree removal if needed, landscaping/lawn seeding
  • Gutters and downspouts
  • Anything else that is done on the property after the home is set on the foundation.
