After so many years of excellent modular home construction growth and adoption, I sometimes find it frustrating that confusion still exists over the meaning of this build process. So many people still confuse the term modular home construction with “manufactured home” or “mobile home” (think trailer). They are not one in the same. In fact, there are huge differences between them. A modular home is built off-site, in modules, to the same building code and uses the same materials as a site-built home. When you buy a modern automobile, what characteristics do you use to describe it? Do safe and healthy, energy-efficient, stylish, and quality built come to mind? Now,...

A new solar plant in Southern Nevada can generate energy both during the day and at night, overcoming what has traditionally been one of the biggest drawbacks to solar power. The Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Plant located about 225 miles northwest of Las Vegas is capable of generating 110 megawatts of power – that’s enough for 75,000 homes. While it’s not running at full capacity quite yet, SolarReserve says the facility is planned to ramp up to its full annual output over the course of 2016. The solar plant uses more than 10,000 mirrored heliostats spread across 1,600 acres to focus sunlight on a 640-foot tall central tower filled...
WHICH plastic gadget, fitting neatly in one hand, can most quickly improve the lives of the world’s poorest people? For the past decade the answer has been clear: the mobile phone. But over the next decade it will be the solar-powered lamp, made up of a few light-emitting diodes (LEDs), a solar panel and a small rechargeable battery, encased in a durable plastic shell. Just as the spread of mobile phones in poor countries has transformed lives and boosted economic activity, solar lighting is poised to improve incomes, educational attainment and health across the developing world. As previously happened with mobile phones, solar lighting is falling in price, improving...
Innovative designers do appreciate the efficiencies and flexibility of this building technique. Whether you’re looking for a new family home or a vacation getaway, a prefab home can be built in quick time with no compromise on quality. Factory made modular homes have come a long way from flimsy trailer park dwellings. Trend setting architects and builders are using modular building materials to create bold new designs with lots of glass and steel. Prefabricated housing comes in all shapes and styles, from streamlined Bauhaus to undulating organic forms. Every shelter should be built to withstand the elements, and engineers are making steady progress in developing storm-ready home designs. In...
As I was watching the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness the past two weekends I noticed how well prepared the horses and jockeys were for the races. Even the mud on the track at the Preakness didn’t stop the horses running all out. The horses were well fed, healthy and well groomed. The jockeys had their silks pressed and the colors were bright. The trainers had prepared the horses and were excited to hear their horse’s name from the loudspeakers. Owners were anxious to see if their horse could win. Bets were placed on every horse. It was Go Time! Then the jockeys brought their horses up to the...

Why modular? QUALITY:
The quality of today’s modular home is often unparalleled, due to several factors: Today’s factory equipment is powerful and state-of-the-art, producing a tight, sound and energy efficient home. The materials need to meet a consistently high standard because of the finely calibrated equipment being used in factory. Your home is created in a climate-controlled environment, where the materials are protected from the ravaging effects of weather. The consistency of an overseen, assembly-line process also leaves little room for mistakes or oversights.
The new modular homes are designed with the customer’s dream house in mind. From a cozy bungalow to a stately Victorian, your new home is made to order, giving you more creative control than working with most builders and contractors. Inside and out, this is your home, designed to match your vision.
One of the best points of building modular is the fact that your dream home can be delivered, set and completed in less than 6 months. This is considerably less time than most onsite homes, where weather concerns, small or inconsistent construction crews, back orders and equipment problems are just a few of the reasons for delay.
Green Building is a whole-system approach to building that takes into consideration 7 factors: 1. Lot Design, Preparation and Development, 2. Resource Efficiency, 3. Energy Efficiency, 4. Water Efficiency, 5. Indoor Environmental Quality, 6. Operation Maintenance and Homeowner Education, and 7. Global Impact, or, in other words, using products that are not harmful to the environment while partnering with other companies/suppliers that also work to protect the environment. Bottom line is that we are certified and committed to building the very smartest, greenest custom homes on the market.
Your new home comes with a 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty® (2-10 HBW®) that includes 10 full years of structural defect coverage for load-bearing components; 2 full years of systems coverage against defects in wiring, piping and ductwork in electrical, plumbing, heating, cooling, ventilating and mechanical systems; and 1 full year of coverage against defects in workmanship and materials.
It’s very easy.
