Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Modular Homes
  • Opening Intro -

    According to US News the number of modular houses has shown little growth in the past years, mainly due to a lack of information.

    In truth, the concept behind is quite huge and trending on continents such as Asia and Australia.


Here is what US citizens frequently ask when coming across the term.

What Does a Modular Home Stand For?

A modular building is built in a factory by pieces, which are later transported and assembled in the demanded place. You shouldn’t confuse them with a mobile home, as these houses are built on a permanent foundation and cannot be transported from one place to another. The materials needed in the construction process of a modular home are not different from the ones you would normally use in for a traditional home.

Will My Home Lack Personality by Looking Similar to Others?

As scary as this question may sound, the answer is no. You may assume that all modular houses look the same but that is not the case here, as the concept of modular home itself has no limits when it comes to design. You can come up with your own idea, but chances are you will find a plan better suited to your needs. Hassle free.

Every manufacturer shows their basic floor plans to the client, and the client can make as many changes as they wish. Clients can modify their standard plans to their hearts content. A home’s personality can always be highlighted not just by the interior or exterior, but also by the patio and yard. You can always upgrade your yard with customized furniture for that extra feel”, advise experts at Outdoor Furniture Online, an Australian based company offering designer pieces.

Apart from creating customized floor plans, the design details are the key here, depending on how clients visualize the dream home. As a modular home owner, you can even add an extra storeys to the house, set up a loft, add a kitchen or bathroom or even additional bedrooms. You can have three modular homes that have started from the same base plan, but they are all completely different.

How Much Does A Modular Home Cost?

For starters, a modular home is less expensive than regular built homes. If you choose one expect to pay between 10% and 20% less than you would normally pay for a standard house. Apart from the price factor there are many other advantages, the most important one is the modular home is a time saving concept. You can have your house ready in a matter of weeks. Imagine not having to deal with things going wrong, workers not doing their jobs right, delaying the work because of bad weather factors, and so on. Less time for construction means less money for the labor work.

What Else Should I Know About the Modular Home Concept?

The pieces for a modular home are constructed in specialized facilities under the supervision of highly trained professionals and factory inspectors thoroughly analyze the assembly and make sure that everything is set according to the legal standards. When building a standard house you never know the exact amount of materials you need and most of the time this degenerates into wasting lade quantities of materials and losing money. With a modular home this problem doesn’t exist.

They are actual properties and their value is calculated just like any other standard built home, with a huge extra: they are a “green space” with a far greater energy efficiency than standard built homes. The modular concept can also be used for office and commercial buildings.

These concept homes come packed with an in-built electric system, plumbing, roofing, and the interior is fully finished. So, US, time to upgrade!
