Celebrating 50 Years of Earth Day!

Did you know that April 22nd marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day?  As we adapt to the restrictions of social distancing, one thing we can celebrate is our shrinking carbon footprint. During this newfound journey, we are here to serve our clients today and tomorrow building energy-efficient homes designed to soak in natural light and ventilation. Modular construction maximizes the use of building materials and utilizes waste to energy practices which means far less waste in landfills.  A tighter building envelope combined with the insulation package we include in each home means greater energy efficiency and savings for the homeowner. Our homes are better for the families living in them and for our environment. What are some easy ways to reduce that carbon footprint even more?  Continue to reduce and consolidate trips to the store. Pick up needed items for neighbors and alternate trips to the store with friends. Wash and carry your own reusable shopping bags a

National Association Of Home Builder's Research Shows Benefits of Modular Housing

When home buyers pay closer attention before construction starts, they are especially likely to see the advantages of modular construction, according to panelists at a press conference held today at the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Fla. Research shows that a typical modular home is built more quickly when home buyers make timely decisions.

“Builders are looking for new solutions in today’s challenging economic climate,” said Kevin Flaherty, vice president of marketing for Genesis Homes and Champion Home Builders Inc., based in Troy, Mich. “When homeowners choose modular construction, as they often do, they experience measurable savings in cost and time."

The time and cost savings can be measured with the U.S. Census Bureau’s data on housing starts. “The Census Bureau publishes characteristics of new housing, but typically doesn’t show detail for modular homes,” said Paul Emrath, NAHB vice president for survey and housing policy research. “By tabulating the Census data ourselves, we can see the characteristics of today’s modular homes in some detail, and compare modular to site-built construction.”

The data show that a typical modular home started in 2010 has three bedrooms (71.6 percent), two full bathrooms (56 percent) and vinyl siding (83.9 percent).

When compared to site-built, a notable difference is how quickly modular homes tend to be built. The average time from start to completion for a modular home is five months, compared to 6.9 months for a site-built home, and this average savings of roughly two months has been consistent over time. Modular homes also tend to be slightly smaller, with an average of 1,902 square feet compared to 2,387 for site-built, and less expensive, with average permit value of $76.80 per square foot versus $94.34 for site-built. 
It is necessary to base the cost comparison on permit value rather than price, because about 80 percent of modular homes are custom built on the owner’s lot and therefore record a sale price, unlike site-built homes that are often built speculatively for sale at some point in the future, Emrath said.

The Census data show that modular homes are located more often in the north central and east coast Census divisions. Additional research conducted by the business planning and marketing consulting firm Hallahan Associates uses permit data to analyze trends in modular home construction by state. “During the past five years, there has been a visible trend of modular home market share growth in key states like New York and Virginia, where modular has an established history,” said Fred C. Hallahan Jr., founder and principal of Hallahan Associates in Baltimore.
