There can be many advantages to commissioning a custom modular home, the first obvious one being the price. Everyone dreams of being able to save a lot of money, but in the world of homes that dream can become a reality. More and more people who are in the market for a new house are realizing modular homes are definitely the way to go. But while that is obviously a main consideration, especially in light of today's economy, there are other benefits that can be achieved too. It is possible to be completely involved from the very first day when choosing to purchase a custom modular home. When buying a regular house, you peruse local listings or visit realtors' offices, go and view the houses and say either yes or no.
With custom-built houses, things are completely different. If you have a plot of land available to build on then all you need to do is find a builder that specializes in the type of house you want. A lot of companies that build this type of house will also be able to help in procuring the land to build on also.
Being able to have a significant say in the design of your new house is also a plus factor. How many rooms you require and even what shape they are to be, is all up to you, the buyer. You can choose from a range of building and construction materials, and because the construction cost for these houses is usually always fixed prior to construction, prices are often guaranteed for longer periods of time. This is the complete opposite of buying a regular home from the housing market where the price can change from day to day.
The speed in which your house will be built will also have a considerable impact on the overall price. Because of the very nature of your new house, most of the main structure will be assembled in a factory and then delivered. Therefore you will, for the most part, be paying for factory work wages instead of the higher cost of professional on-site carpenters etc. In the long-term, because your house has taken a significantly less time to build, repayments on a loan or mortgage will be fewer, saving even more money.
All manufacturers of these houses will have a wide array of designs and standard plans available for people with no design experience or preference. It is possible with modern technology to have a house that is absolutely stunning in design, with vaulted ceilings, angle bay towers and steeply pitched roofs making the house look spectacularly modern, while at the same time traditional. All designs and style preferences can be catered for, and adjustments easily made in the planning process stage. It is even possible to start off by using a standard plan, and alter it to your own specific needs or requirements. Luxury fixtures and fittings, wheelchair accessible doorways and floor plans and even the landscaping of your finished garden, can all be decided upon before construction even begins, saving even more time and money.
