I have recently thought about building a new home and the work and preparation that goes into it. There’s a nice selection of beautiful building lots available in the area but I already have one so that’s one less thing to think about. Being from the old school, I had only considered framing the house from the ground up on-site. As I was deliberating over plans, a friend suggested I look into modular homes. These homes are available in a wide selection of plans and dimensions. They are built in plants in a controlled environment and then the pre-built sections are transported to your lot where they are placed on the prepared foundation. The sections are then joined and any finish work completed. Because the interior and most of the exterior of these home are finished at the factory I would be able to move in sooner than if I built on-site. Also, I would have a fixed price on the modular building but not the option to make changes during the building process. I still haven’t decided what to build but I think the modular concept deserves additional research. I’ll let you know what I decide!
