First, we need to understand what a modular home is. A modular home, the same as a manufactured home, is built indoors. They are constructed to either an A277 or a Z240 code. An A277 is generally designed to be put onto a crawlspace foundation or a basement, while a Z240 has a steel frame under it to be placed on blocks onto any solid surface, such as a gravel or cement pad.
Since a modular home is constructed in a factory, the overall costs end up being lower than a site-built house. The efficiencies come from having all the trades and materials in one place, as well as eliminating weather as a construction variable.
Our homes are fully customizable, as we have an engineering firm design each unit for the specific customer’s needs, as well as the requirements for the location of the home (i.e, climate zone, snowload, etc.). While we have examples of floor plans on our website (https://twinriversmodularhomes.ca/), we can arrange walls, windows, entrances and all other features to suit the flow of living and to accommodate the space it is going in.
The modular home only takes about six to eight weeks to be constructed at the factory. Then, using specialized equipment, it is shipped to the location and our crews install it and finish it on site. Depending on how the home finished, it normally takes about four weeks to have it move-in ready once it has arrived.
All things considered, the final product ends up being at least 15 per cent less expense than a stick-built house. A 1,400-square-foot home (a doublewide unit with three bedrooms and two bathrooms) will come in at about $300,000. This would cover all the costs to have the home ready to be moved into, while the customer would still need to prep the site with whatever foundation the home would be going on and provide the utilities.
The estimated cost of a modular home can vary depending on the location of where the home is going. Our office is near Mount Paul in Kamloops/Tk’emlúps, so we consider the cost of transport and travel for our setup crew from there.
