While some companies are still sorting through the aftermath of the recession-hit housing market of 2008, others are busy filling orders. Although custom homes for the average buyer has become a thing of the past, kit homes are now becoming a viable option.
When we learned about Modscape, it was being touted as the prefabricated custom home of the future. How can a prefabricated home be a custom home?
Evidently, it is all about selecting the modules and options. It is surprising how many available choices and configurations are possible. Once the buyer makes all of the individual selections a home can be constructed within 12-weeks.
Using economically sustainable materials, such as plantation timbers that are made for durability low energy use, Modscape is committed to recycle, reuse and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Environmentally-sound production methods and practices are integrated into their business model. So it seems they have thought of everything.
This is how the process works:
- Consultation and site inspection
- Client selection: the modules and floor plans
- ModScape moves into action in their 5,000 sq. ft. facility
- Delivery and installation
We didn’t realize that the installation is the biggest difference.
The fact that the homes are constructed on the Modscape location sounds like a daunting task. However, because the parts are installed prior to delivery, they are assured to work together perfectly, all before leaving the Modscape facility.
Other kit homes are built and shipped so the assembly is done on-location. This practically guarantees on-site challenges and possible up-charges if anything was made off-spec and needs to be retrofitted.
Since the company is already equipped for moving completed structures, Modscape, is ready for all possibilities. Think about it. Got a new job in another city? Pack up and take your home with you because these homes are transportable.
Modscape isn’t only a residential solution. They have customized structures for organizations such as: the Merrifield Project, a multi-use complex in the City of Hume, and the Oxygen Use Facility, a youth center in Moreland.
