Many people dream of someday building their own home. Unfortunately, in today’s economy, this isn’t always possible. Or, is it? There is an option that will allow anyone to be able to have their dream home built to their specifications without having to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to do so. All they have to do is take advantage of modular building systems. Overall, it costs much less per square metre to have a modular home built than it costs to build a traditional home, and it doesn’t take nearly as long to build a modular home.
Design Your Dream Home
Unlike mobile homes, which are very specific in design, the possibilities are virtually unlimited when it comes to designing a modular home. The manufacturer will use computer software to design the home to your exact specifications, or you can use one of the plans that has already been created, and get the manufacturer to make modifications to make the home uniquely yours.
Benefits of Owning a Modular Home
There are many advantages to owning a modular home, in addition to the fact that they are less expensive and take less time to build than traditional houses. For one thing, modular homes are extremely energy efficient. This means that you are going to have lower energy bills. Because the sections of the home are built indoors, they are never out in bad weather while the rest of the house is being built. Another advantage is that they come in a variety of designs, and you can also have your own input when it comes to how the final product will look.
Be in Your New Home within Two Months
It can take many months to build a traditional house. When you invest in modular building systems, you can expect to be living in your home within two months of ordering it. Each section of the house is made in a factory, and then all of the sections are shipped to your land, and placed on a foundation that has already been laid. All that is left to do is for your builder to complete the project, which includes joining the sections of the house. The actual construction of a modular home takes a couple of weeks, depending on the design, and the work your builder does should take no more than three to four weeks. You can be living in your new home in less time than it would take to get the frame built on a traditional house.
