A modular home is a factory-built home with several prefabricated pieces for final delivery and assembly at the homesite. When building these homes, you get the benefits of a traditionally built homes as living spaces, just delivered faster and at a lower cost.
You don’t have to compromise when you build a modular home. Because these homes give you full flexibility with floor plans and features, you design a prefabricated and sustainable home from scratch.
Building these homes uses fewer materials and energy, making it a green building option
A home built indoors can meet the same building codes, standards, and materials as a home built outdoors. Prefab modular construction happens when the weather does not allow for outdoor construction. Also, site and foundation work for the location of the home happens simultaneously as the home is built back at the factory. As a result, these homes are a cost-competitive option in a growing market of prefabricated homes.
There may be the misconception that an energy-efficient modular home has a bigger purchase cost despite the savings that come later on. However, this is not always the case if the construction of the home occurs in an efficient and controlled factory setting.
Modular homes are the future of living spaces. They are an incredible investment for first-time homebuyers. Instead of searching for a home that already exists, homebuyers can select a plot of land and build a home that matches set goals based on their budget. Modular homes rarely depreciate over time because they’re set permanently like on-site built homes. These homes are a great investment for an existing homeowner as they will provide additional rental income. A modular homeowner in an area of high rental could pay off their home in 10 years or less.
A high-performance modular home is the ideal home of the future. It’s cost-competitive compared to a conventional home. Suits the comforts of its occupants, and saves money in the long run through energy efficiencies.
