Modular Home Questions & Answers

CAN YOU BUILD ME A GARAGE, BASEMENT, OR PORCH?

As a full-service dealer and general contractor; we can build whatever you want. 

You can act as your general contractor or for those who don’t have time to run a home building project; you can hire us to handle the details for you. We control every aspect of the building project for you.
  • Building permits
  • Surveyors
  • Clearing the lot
  • Digging the foundation
  • Wells and Septic Systems
  • Anything else that’s needed to build your dream home.
Our General Contracting fee is 13% of all site work that is managed by us.

And yes, you can hire your Uncle Bob to put in the septic system (assuming he’s licensed). When you choose to manage a portion of the site work yourself (like the foundation or well or septic, etc.), we will not charge you our General Contracting fee for that portion of the work.

DOES YOUR PRICE INCLUDE ALL THE OPTIONS SHOWN IN THE PICTURE?

The pictures and elevation drawings you see on our website often show finishes and items that are not included in the home price listed.

Here is a partial list of things that are considered upgrade/optional for your new modular home: Dormers on the home – garages – porches – landscaping – metal roofing – concrete driveways – stone veneer on home – premium vertical siding – dormers – kitchen appliances – stone countertops – solid hardwood doors – laminate or hardwood floors – premium cabinets (hickory, cherry, etc) – ceramic tile floors.

All of these optional items and finishes will need to be priced out on an individual basis. Please contact us for a complete list of standard specifications for your home.

Also, for all homes the HVAC system (Furnace and A/C), home foundation, garages, porches, and all Major Utility Connections such as well and water main hookup, sewer system and drains under home, electric service and hookup, and gas service and piping hookup are priced separately on a case-by-case basis.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO BUILD A CUSTOM MODULAR HOME?

The home itself is usually finished and set on the foundation in 3-4 months.

If the home is paid for with cash, we begin construction on your new modular home as soon as we have a finalized list of home options and your down payment.

For those with bank financed construction loans, we order the home as soon as the bank closes your construction loan and authorizes us to place the order.

Additional work, such as garages or landscaping depends on the complexity of the project
