One of the most appealing aspects of modular homes is the time that can be saved when building a modular home. Unlike site-built homes, modular homes do not have to wait until the foundation is poured and dried to start construction. In fact, there are several processes that are able to be accomplished simultaneously that would otherwise take months to complete in a site-built home.
We work with our builders very closely to ensure that all the duties that need to be done are completed before the home is delivered. We do this so that you can move into your new home as soon as possible. Here are some of the actions that you can expect your builder to complete throughout the modular home building process:
Firstly, your builder should examine your property thoroughly. They should conduct tasks such as exploratory digging for soil testing to determine the best options for your foundation.
After these initial tests are completed, your builder should begin prepping your land for the delivery of your home. About a month before your home is ready to be shipped, you builder should start on jobs like:
- Designating an area for the construction trucks and the crane to operate
- Leveling the building area
- Building the foundation
- Preparing utility connections (gas, electricity, water, etc.)
