House building process

Sign a contract

Decide what you want
What type of house do you want? Do you want a ranch, colonial or another style? How many floors, bedrooms, bathrooms and how much square feet of space would you like? Where would you like to build? (Most modular builders will only service a specific area.)

Look at our modular home builder reviews". Most of the builders will ask you to fill out a contact form so they will know what information to send you. Usually, it will take a few days for them to send you this information and a price estimate for your project. Make sure your builder is certified and in good standing with the Better Business Bureau.

Start planning, designing and technical drawing preparing.

Architectural Plans

Once you decide on a builder, your next step is to choose which plan of theirs you would like or if you want any add-ons to their normal plans. Based on your selection, the builder will prepare house plans and architectural drawings in about 2-6 weeks. Check out our sneak peek at some modular floor plans. Each manufacturer has unique plans but this should give you a good sense of what you can expect your house to look like.
