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.
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.
Set & Finish includes setting and fastening the modular home to your foundation, fastening the various sections of your home together, crane rental fees (assuming normal lot conditions), finishing roof venting and ridge cap shingles, running PVC drain vents through the roof, house-wrap and siding installation on ends, aluminum soffit and fascia installation, porch light installation, interior marriage-wall drywall finish and trim work, repairing any transportation cracks in drywall, ceiling texturing at the marriage wall, carpet and linoleum transitions, adjusting interior/exterior doors as needed, and final interior touch-ups as well as a final sweep and vacuum.

Please Note: Unless specifically noted in the description, the 2nd floor of our Cape Cod Modular Homes will come as unfinished attic space for the price shown (Two-Story modular homes always come finished upstairs).
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.

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
