Modular Home vs Site built
Building Modular Homes all Around Michiana !! Call - 574-797-0079
The question that lingers on everyone’s mind when looking into modular homes, “what exactly is this, and how is it different than a regular home?”. At Michiana Modular we’re pretty used to the question, and one that we are quite rehearsed in answering. We hope to lead you to choosing the perfect one for your home, so then we feel we’ve managed to explain the differences correctly.
One of the largest factors when it comes to anyone considering a home is price. Investing in where you will spend the rest of your life, probably, living isn’t an easy decision, and though we would all like to think of as money not being a large influence, in more cases than not it is, and knowing what you’re going to be making payments on your home for many years to come, planning ahead can be crucial. A modular home from Michiana Modular has the capability to save you tens of thousands of dollars in the short, and long run.
Another large factor that comes into play when choosing a modular home versus a site built one is the time in which you can have your home. With a modular home you aren’t restricted by the weather, as all of our fabrication takes place off-site and indoors. With this potential delay, you can see your home built shelved for months while waiting on the weather to cooperate. This isn’t an issue you face with a Michiana Modular built home, as we can have your home assembled and ready to go in weeks rather than months.
A third area in which we attempt to bring you the most choice possible is the options that you have for your home. One of the biggest benefits to a site built home is the level of options in which you are presented over the course of building, the ability to pick and choose each design to give you the overall finished product that is exactly as you picture it in your mind. At Michiana Modular though, we also bring you this same level of option, and ensure that each home that we present to our clients is the exact match to their mental images.
It’s easy to think of potential negatives to a product we’re not familiar with, and one query that we hear a lot is asking whether or not a modular home has the same strength as a site built one. To which we reply, yes. Between the two, the only difference is the build location. Rather than building outdoors at the mercy of the weather, we build indoors, everything else in the process is virtually identical, giving you all the benefits of a site built option, with the lower price of a modular home, and the same level of options.
