Q&A for Modular Homes ~ You Ask, We'll Answer
WHAT DOEs my PRICING INCLUDE?
1) The MODULAR HOME itself (built to our standard specifications)
2) MODULAR HOME SALES TAX
3) DELIVERY to your lot within 100 miles of our location
4) SETTING the mobile or modular home on your foundation, and
5) COMPLETING the interior and exterior FINISH WORK after setting.
*There is an allowance of up to $3,000 in crane fees. Anything over will incur an extra charge, but this does not happen often in our immediate local area."
Also, the pictures and artists renditions you see on our website along with the floorplans typically show optional mobile and modular home upgrades: garages, porches and other things (such as landscaping and driveways) that will need to be priced out in addition to the mobile or modular home sale price. We price these on a case by case basis.
Anything other than the home itself will need to be accounted for, including the foundation, HVAC, well, septic, outside electric main/gas hookups, etc.
For all homes, the following items will have to be bid in addition to the modular home itself: the HVAC system (furnace and A/C), home foundation, building a garage or porch, all utility connections such as the well or water main hookup, sewer system and drains under home, electric service and hookup, gas service and piping hookup, tree removal if needed, landscaping/lawn seeding, gutters/downspouts, and anything else that is done on the property after the home is set on the foundation.
Could you add on a GARAGe (…A BASEMENT, PORCH, ETC?) For us?
Yes! As a full service dealer and general contractor, we can build whatever you'd like.
Many of our clients don’t have the time or desire to run a modular home building project. In that case, it's very convenient to hire us as their General Contractor. We can handle every aspect of the building project for you, including obtaining building permits and hiring surveyors. We can hire and oversee subcontractors to clear your lot, dig and construct the foundation, put in the well and septic system or hook up to city utilities. If a garage, front porch or back deck are part of your plans, we can make that happen in smooth succession.
You are free to manage your own modular home building project. You can simply hire us to build, deliver and set a custom modular home on your foundation if you wish.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO BUILD MY CUSTOM MODULAR HOME?
You can usually move into your modular home within 60 to 90 working days.
For custom modular homes in the Tri-State area, the time frame is typically 60 to 90 working days. The 60 to 90 working day estimated time frame starts when we place your modular home on order at the manufacturing plant. For an all cash purchase, we order your home as soon as we have finalized the list of modular home options/décor selections, sign-offs and your down payment. For bank financed construction loans, we order your home as soon as the bank closes your construction loan, receive down payment and authorizes us to place the order.
