How Long Does A Modular Home Take to Build?

GettyImages 145130950 scaled How Long Does A Modular Home Take to Build?Whether you’re a first-time buyer or looking for a change from your current home, modular homes have so much to offer. With a modular home you get to choose the floor plan of your house, as well as interior and exterior fixtures. You can also look forward to a much simpler design and construction process.

While traditional home construction is associated with an extended project length, which often becomes even longer as complications arise, modular homes can be designed, planned, and constructed on a much shorter timeline. Here’s what you can expect when having a modular home built for your family.

Planning & Design

Choosing a floor plan is often the first step in the process, one that requires a lot of thought. For example, the size of floor plan you choose must match the size and layout of your property. You may also want to customize your floor plan, which makes your modular home unique to your tastes and style. This part of the process can take as little as one week or several weeks to complete depending on your input. Your modular home company will also need to apply for permits to work on your property, which adds to the planning and design time.

Site Evaluation & Preparation

Similar to traditional home construction, the property where your home is being placed will need to be surveyed and evaluated. Land clearing is also performed, which can entail removing rocks, tree stumps, and other impediments. From there, soil is graded so the ground beneath your modular home is level. Some modular homeowners also choose to have a concrete slab poured before the home is constructed. In general, the site evaluation and preparation process usually take about five weeks, although larger plots of land may take longer to prepare.

Building Your Modular Home

The construction process for a modular home typically happens much quicker than a traditional home build. This is because the components of your home are built off-site in a factory, and then shipped to your property and constructed by your modular home team. In some cases, the entire home can be constructed in as little as four weeks, depending on the size of the property, its layout, and the fixtures you choose. Compare this to a traditional home build, which can take as long as six months in some cases.

A decreased construction timeline is just one of the many benefits available to modular home buyers in Albuquerque. If you’re interested this innovative and efficient process, our team at Fiesta Homes is happy to discuss your options.
