Forward-thinking builders have long sought ways to improve the traditional stick-built, on-site process. Enter prefab, whose most recent iterations offer the latest in quality control, speedy delivery, innovative materials, and sustainability—a long way from its early 1900s roots of Sears, Roebuck & Co. mail order. Prefab has undergone fits and starts. Resistance has come in a litany of perceptions, from inferior quality that conjures visions of mobile homes to the belief that standardized designs leave little or no room for customization to fear that workers’ jobs will be axed. But Frank Baker pushes back. Thirty years ago, after working for General Motors, Baker started a company that makes SIPs...

Why modular? QUALITY:
The quality of today’s modular home is often unparalleled, due to several factors: Today’s factory equipment is powerful and state-of-the-art, producing a tight, sound and energy efficient home. The materials need to meet a consistently high standard because of the finely calibrated equipment being used in factory. Your home is created in a climate-controlled environment, where the materials are protected from the ravaging effects of weather. The consistency of an overseen, assembly-line process also leaves little room for mistakes or oversights.
The new modular homes are designed with the customer’s dream house in mind. From a cozy bungalow to a stately Victorian, your new home is made to order, giving you more creative control than working with most builders and contractors. Inside and out, this is your home, designed to match your vision.
One of the best points of building modular is the fact that your dream home can be delivered, set and completed in less than 6 months. This is considerably less time than most onsite homes, where weather concerns, small or inconsistent construction crews, back orders and equipment problems are just a few of the reasons for delay.
Green Building is a whole-system approach to building that takes into consideration 7 factors: 1. Lot Design, Preparation and Development, 2. Resource Efficiency, 3. Energy Efficiency, 4. Water Efficiency, 5. Indoor Environmental Quality, 6. Operation Maintenance and Homeowner Education, and 7. Global Impact, or, in other words, using products that are not harmful to the environment while partnering with other companies/suppliers that also work to protect the environment. Bottom line is that we are certified and committed to building the very smartest, greenest custom homes on the market.
Your new home comes with a 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty® (2-10 HBW®) that includes 10 full years of structural defect coverage for load-bearing components; 2 full years of systems coverage against defects in wiring, piping and ductwork in electrical, plumbing, heating, cooling, ventilating and mechanical systems; and 1 full year of coverage against defects in workmanship and materials.
It’s very easy.
