This website is for those interested in
purchasing a modular home or those considering one and wishing to learn more
about them. I will share my experiences and lessons learned while
acting as the general contractor on mine in the St. Louis,
modular homes, I found a lot of information supplied by builders or sales
agents. I am trying to add another perspective to that - that of the
customer as well as being heavily
involved in the planning and scheduling of the project.
I am not a general
contractor by profession, so the information that I am providing here is
just my experiences and may not be typical of all modular home construction
projects. In addition, this was not your typical building lot.
There was a lot of work to be done to get a driveway to the where the house
was to be built.
attempting to put together in one place all the information that I gathered
over about a year while clearing my lot in preparation of a road, building
site and septic system drain field area.
The topics covered in this website are:
My story -
this is a little background about how and why I chose this type of home
home builders - a list of builders and the states they work in
Modular home costs - site work costs usually not covered in the cost of
things I learned the hard way having my home built
Pictures of our home being delivered, set on foundation and the interior
I hope you learn
something here that is helpful in your project!
