Some people who make the decision to build a modular home approach the process with some reservations — especially folks whose previous experience with homebuilding or purchasing is limited to traditional “stick-built” homes.
At Westchester Modular, our more than 30 years of modular home experience enables us to make the process as smooth and seamless as possible. What is it like to build a modular home? We invite you to read the testimonial provided by Julie G., one of our many satisfied clients.
What Is the Modular Home Building Process Like?
Julie G. was looking to build a new home in a cohousing community in Saugerties, NY. However, there was only one remaining lot in the community, and it presented a host of design and construction challenges. Julie consulted with Deb, her agent, who contacted Westchester Modular for guidance. After a series of telephone and in-person meetings, they were able to develop a workable plan for developing the lot and building Julie’s new home.
“Since I wanted all the living area to be on one level,” said Julie, “I chose the Cape style. After determining the dimensions that would fit on the back part of the lot between the manhole and the water line, I scratched out a floor plan. Deb and I spent an afternoon in her office with the Westchester rep while he laid out the floor plan on his computer and the three of us collaborated to figure out the best way to configure the rooms.
“On the day that Westchester set the boxes,” Julie continued, “it was almost unbelievable how the crew managed to get the crane and the flatbed trucks down the narrow road and in place, with perfect precision. Every single aspect of the delivery went off without a hitch.”
Julie Experienced a Flawless Modular Home Installation
The construction of Julie’s new home took only 12 weeks, during which time she developed a strong personal relationship with the builder and subcontractors. She was pleased with the way that everyone involved in the project went “above and beyond” to ensure a successful outcome.
“This was truly a turn-key project,” Julie remarked. “Deb managed every aspect, and all I had to do was pick out materials and colors. And it was fast: the floor plans were started in April, the modules delivered in mid-August, and I moved in before Thanksgiving.”
