How Long is the Process of Building a New Modular Home?

How long is the building process for building a new home? Hi… I’m Todd Rutledge with Legendary Homes. That’s one of the most common questions I get is: How long will the building process take?

In this video below I explain how long the construction normally takes.

Here’s the direct link to the video:  https://youtu.be/gNPLfFhh5PE

The first part is getting the modular home ordered. Redman Homes is our main manufactured home manufacturer. They typically run around 8 weeks out to get the home built. I checked the first part of February and off line dates were middle of March. So they were about 6 weeks out to build the home at that time. As we get closer to spring they will typically run about 8 weeks. Closer to fall time can be between 8 and 10 weeks most years.

If you have financing to get. It’s critical to get the paper work into the bank so they can get that process going so we can order the home. The bank will want a signed contract with the costs and what’s going to be done on your new home. They will give the building contract to the appraiser. That’s generally the first step in the process of financing of building your new home.

The home will be built and scheduled for delivery for about 2 to 4 days after the off line date to give them time to be sure to finish it up. Once delivered to the building site it will be about a day or two after delivery when the house will be set on the foundation.

From that point, I tell people to plan on about 60 days from the day of set. I try to shoot for 30 days, but I’d rather tell you to plan on 60 days and have it be 30 days then to tell you to plan on 30 days and have it be 60 days.

Of course, there are variables that can come into play on how long it takes to complete the construction of a new home. Such things are weather. If too much rain then that can delay things.

The most common delay is getting power to the house. To get power to the house we need to get the house set and then the electrician will come and install the service on the house. Once he’s done the electrical inspector will come and inspect it and then it’s the electrical inspector that notifies the power company. Most commonly Consumers Energy for most of our areas.

We are at the mercy of the power company at that point and sometimes they will show up fairly quickly and sometimes it can take them a while to get there and run power to the house.

Once power is on. The plumbers will come and run the drain lines and connect the water lines and they will check to make sure there are no leaks. They can usually get this done in one day shortly after power is on. Once done they will call and get the plumbing inspected.

Once power is on we can also get mechanical and electrical finish inspections. And then once those 3 inspections have passed we can call the building inspector and get the inspection done for the final. That is what we need in order to get the certificate of occupancy.

That’s the process of building a house. If you have any questions or anything Legendary Homes can help you will, please call Todd at 517-206-2435

Todd was a pleasure to meet with...We've been looking for quite some time to purchase a home, but this seller market has been tough, so we decided to look into modular homes. Todd was able to get us into a consultation quickly, answered all the questions we had for beginners, broke down the pricing and potential unanticipated costs, and presented us with a great deal of material to go home with and review. Eventhough we were able to get an offer accepted on a home within a couple days of meeting with Todd, we will definitely be considering a modular home with Legendary Homes for our future purchase. Thanks Todd!

I cannot say enough good things about Todd Rutledge & Legendary Homes. I was frustrated with the running around, people trying to take advantage of my lack of knowledge and the time that I had to spend researching what I needed to do in order to make my move a reality. Then I found Todd. He gave me the information & tools that I needed, he understood & worked with my budget & he showed great professionalism. He was timely & considerate. But most of all, he showed great integrity. I know that I can trust him to look out for my families best interest. He went above and beyond. Thank you Todd!!

I appreciated Todd taking the time to speak with me at the model house about the various options and things to consider when building a home. He was clear, direct, and easy to work with. Legendary Homes works with Redman Homes, which offers solid construction and just a few decisions to make in terms of finishes. For those who get analysis paralysis, this is a blessing! Definitely worth a look if a solid, simple home is the goal.

Todd was extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. We had some questions he didn't have answers for, but he quickly researched and gave us an answer the next business day. I especially enjoy how candid he is with the cost of everything, it gives me confidence that he's not trying to minimize the costs or hide charges for later. Once we find our land, I will be coming back to see Todd.

My husband and I would highly recommend Legendary Homes! From our first meeting with Todd, until we moved in, we had a positive experience. He did everything he said he would and completed the job in an extremely timely manner. Todd listened to us and made sure we were happy with our new home

After contacting several builders in our area, we found that Legendary Homes was by far the most upfront and honest about the costs associated with building a modular home. I started reading Todd's blog and quickly realized he was the best fit for us. We were trying to decide between a couple of pieces of property so Todd volunteered to meet us at each site to give his input. He was very patient with us and quickly answered all of our questions about the process. I would highly recommend Legendary Homes to anyone who is considering building a home.
