The Modular Advantage

Constistent Quality
  • Building homes in a climate controlled facility allows for more consistent quality due to uniform construction processes,employee training techniques and inspections.

  • While a 100% site-built home may have one or two inspections during the build, our homes go through 300 quality inspections and third party inspection before leaving the factory.

  • Once on site, they are again inspected throughout the setting of the modules and onsite finishes, this time by a local building inspector.

  • These homes meet and often exceed all requirements of locally adopted building and fire codes.

Energy Efficient
  • Because our modular homes need to be moved to the homesite, they are engineered to a higher standard of strength than stick-built homes. Drywall panels are nailed and glued during the build, all contributing to the modular home's increased energy efficiency.

  • This high performance construction transfers into heating and cooling savings for the homeowner.

  • Many times modular homes can require a smaller furnace or air-conditioning unit than a comparable site built home.

  • Energy efficient appliances are available as well.

Resource Efficient
  • Building modular homes in a factory setting greatly reduces waste because materials and resources are recycled and reused.

  • In stark contrast, a typical 2,000 square foot site-built home results in 8,000 pounds of waste that ends up in a landfill.

  • Modular homes are green by their very nature. Assembly in an enclosed indoor environment allows them to fulfill key components of green building certifications.

  • Less environmental impact on the land and community where the house is being set.

Design Flexibility
  • Modular home designs encompass the entire spectrum of the market. From affordable single-family and multi-family housing to high end luxury homes, we can build it all with modular.

  • A wide variety of modular home plans are available to choose from. We offer capes, ranches, split-level and two-story modular homes.

  • Many options are also available that will help customize your home to your own personal tastes.

  • Computerization (CAD) has enabled us to design any modular home to meet the particular needs of a homeowner.

Speed of Construction
  • Off-site construction of modular homes enables a quick turnaround between groundbreaking and occupancy.

  • Our homes are built in a fraction of the time needed for a comparable site-built home.

  • They are delivered to your homesite up to 90% complete and completely built overall in one-third the time of site-built homes.

  • Upon delivery to the site, your home can be set and weathertight in as little as one day.

  • Most work is done in the factory, so weather delays, missing materials and subcontractor no-shows are all but eliminated, saving time and money. This is especially important in a resort area such as the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

Cost-Effective

The highly efficient process of modular construction also results in:

 

  • Less interest on your construction loan.

  • No costly delays during due to weather.

  • Factory construction and the ability to quickly get your home under-roof on site protects your home's interior from the elements and safeguards your investment.

  • Modular homes are more tightly built and thus more energy efficient, which can result in lower heating and cooling costs for the home owner.
