There are many things to consider when you’re in the market for a new home. From budget to layout, you often have a vision for the kind of home you’d like and the kind of lifestyle you want it to support.
Have you considered a modular built home?
While modular construction is new to many people, the technique has actually been around for well over 100 years. In this process, modules are manufactured in a factory environment, then transported to the site where they are fit together to build the home. It’s a tried and tested process that improves on conventional construction in many ways, and results in a home that is virtually indistinguishable from a site-built home.
Here are seven reasons why a modular built home is the right choice for you:
A modular built home is constructed to fit your needs. The shape and size of each building can be customized, and there are a variety of interior and exterior finishes to choose from. With this amount of flexibility, you can build the home of your dreams that matches your personal taste and lifestyle.
It looks great
Whether you want floor-to-ceiling windows that capture the vast views of nature, a home with a modern look fit for the city, or even something more rustic, modular built homes have unlimited aesthetic potential. They come in a variety of designs, giving you the freedom to choose what best suits your vision.
It can be built in less time
Building in a factory environment, away from the elements, has many perks. One of them is that the construction of modules takes place at the same time as construction of the on-site foundation. Offsite construction also prevents delays that take place due to weather or theft. This means your home can be move-in ready up to 50 per cent faster than a conventional site build. In fact, it can be ready in as little as six months.
It’s durable and high quality
Your home is built using the same durable and high-quality materials as conventional site builds. Throughout the modular construction process, materials are subjected to rigorous quality control. They are protected from outdoor elements like rain and snow that can cause damage and reduce the integrity of the structure, which ultimately results in a strong, top quality structure that meets or exceeds building codes.
It’s cost efficient
If you’re looking to stay on budget, then a modular built home is the right choice. By establishing time efficiencies through offsite construction and protecting manufacturing materials, your costs can be well anticipated and kept on track.
It can be multi-use
Part of the additional flexibility of modular built homes is that they can be applied to different needs beyond a single-family home. The structures can be as big or small as needed. This makes them perfect for laneway housing, a self-contained living space on the same property as a single detached home that can usually be accessed from the alley or back lane. An option like this maximises the use of your already existing property, with additional space for family members or potential rental income.
It’s inherently friendly to the environment
The lean modular construction process is, by its nature, “greener” than other construction methods. Offsite building means less environmental disturbance and less construction waste, and the overall efficiency of the factory construction also makes the process more sustainable.
