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 HiPerformance 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 some key components of green building certifications, including the ICC 700 National Green Building Standard.

  • 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.
