Cost of Having a Ranch Style Modular Home in Michigan
The quality of a ranch style modular home may even surpass that of site-built homes despite having a lesser costs. Construction inside a factory also means the components of the home aren’t exposed to extreme temperatures or weather conditions as they would be at a job site leaving the end result or modules in high quality. Consistency in modular home construction is enhanced because the modular home is built by a single source rather than many subcontractors.
Another advantage is that modular homes are nearly complete when they arrive at the site. Carpet, vinyl, and other flooring are installed at the factory along with the trim, and walls are painted or tiled. Plumbing and electrical work are completed at the factory, too, with utility connections made at the site by the local contractor, who directs the project and assembles the finished modules. That cuts cost.
Costs of a Modular Home
The total modular home project typically costs about twice what’s paid to the factory for the modules. This covers the foundation, septic or sewers, well or water lines, the driveway, a little landscaping, connecting the plumbing and wiring between modules, and hooking up the home to utilities. Included in the total cost are shipping charges of around $4,000, and $1,000 for a crane to place the modules.
Most modular companies allow customers design flexibility, according to the National Association of Home Builders. Manufacturers are most willing to do custom homes when plans come from architects practiced in modular construction.
For greater design flexibility, have your local contractor install some materials after the modules are in place.
