My husband and I have rcently thought about building a new home, because ours doesn't suit our needs. We don't want to sell ours and buy another one because the location of our property, and when we bought it, we got a really good deal. We have 2.8 acres, and it is all pretty much flat lawn space. We love where it is at, but the layout of the house is horrible, and there is really no way to build onto it. It just isn't laid out to do any add-ons. He said something about a home building kit. I am not sure what he is talking about. He said when you order it, the home comes in pieces, and you pretty much anchor it and put it together. Anyone have any ideas on what he is talking about, and where I can find more information? Thanks!!
All these answers below are great, but I need to know where I can get more info on modular homes. Websites, phone numbers….
He could be talking about a SIP wall home (structurally insulated panels–1/2 inch OSB on both sides with foam material in the center). The home comes out in pieces, each with electical/plumbing chases already in the wall at regular intervals. They are well insulated and generally erected with a crane or skytrack (lift truck with extending boom).
Or a more complete, modular style home where the pieces are larger and more complet, placed together like puzzle pieces for a quicker finished product.
The layout in each is only restricted by your imagination and your pocketbook.
