Why Go Hybrid Modular Construction for That Next Custom Home?

We love building hybrid modular construction for our smaller, green built and green certified custom built homes. By getting a large portion of the custom home built in one of our many factories we can specify the exact manner and conditions under which your new home is built. We can also incorporate many more "green" features into the home at a fraction of the cost that it would cost to do on site while stick building. In our opinion, there are no negatives with custom modular home construction in today's market if using the best companies to build your modules.

The total time it takes us to build a home is reduced from 6 to 8 months to around 3 to 4 months since many actions are happening simultaneously. The modular factory builds the modules while we are installing the foundations, this cuts construction time greatly. Also, bad weather is no longer a major concern. All trim out of home, decks, porches and site built garages are site done after the modules are set on the foundation. Our modular hybrid homes are all built to a high green standard and are typically 30% to 40% more energy efficient than a code built home.
