Modular homes have been a solid fixture in the housing market for several decades now. What started out as a basic concept has expanded into a vibrant industry with innovative technologies and environmental friendly construction practices that even surpasses the stick-built industry. Modular homes are modern dwellings, complete with all of the standard amenities you would find in any conventional home.
Many Options to Choose From
One of the big advantages to modular housing is you get to choose the color of your home to the roofing shingles to the flooring materials and everything in between. And you don’t have to imagine what these choices will look like because in many cases your builder has a display center that allows you to see, touch and feel all the different materials and options that are available.
What Type of Counter Tops would you like?
It used to be that you only had a few choices when selecting a counter top. But, today customers can choose from granite, marble, stamped concrete or Formica. In addition to kitchen options there of course are many other features like custom fireplace, hardwood floors, theater room or custom windows. Today a modular home customer is not limited when it comes to selecting certain options like a Jacuzzi bathtub or six head shower head with custom tile work.
Larger may be Better
One big item that makes today’s contemporary modular home so different from it distant cousin of the past is size. In short, they are now available with far more square footage of living space then they have ever been before. Many custom modular homes are 3,500 square feet in size and some are even 8,000 or larger. In fact the larger the modular home is the more cost effective they become.
Fewer Delays and Less Stress
Modular homes offer quicker build times with less stress compared to traditional stick-built homes. The ease of ordering and knowing the home is being built in a controlled environment out of the weather is comforting. There are fewer sub-contractors to worry about and the process from begging to end is about six months quicker compared to stick-built construction methods. This all adds up to less stress and happier customers.
