A modular home is a house that is typically built inside in a factory setting. Once the home is completed it is transported by truck to the owner’s location. Basically, a modular home is one that is built off site and shipped to the final location. Since modular homes are built indoors they are immune to weather challenges and can be completed much more quickly and efficiently than typical stick built homes. The typical turnaround time on a modular home is weeks, rather than a year or so with a custom onsite build. Less waste is produced since the build is more controlled, making it a greener solution, while saving money on the final project. The builders have very specific protocols and standards which they are easily able to observe in the factory setting. Building codes are still in place and code standards are exceed by builders that Best Buy Homes works with.

Modular homes often offer custom options like a variety of floor plans, interior and exterior finishes and specific options that the client may select from. Many home builders also offer unique and modern design features. This style of building allows customers the chance to design their home to best fit their needs and desires, without the high cost usually associated with an onsite custom built home.

Modular homes are permanent housing solutions built on a foundation or piles. Some floorplans offer the option to add a basement, crawl space or garage. Once the home is complete in the factory it is shipped to its lot. The finishing touches are completed onsite.
