    On Site

    While your home is being built at the plant, we will be busy preparing your lot including excavation, backfilling, servicing and preparing a structural pad for your foundation. We will then install concrete footing and walls with standard steel reinforcement. We understand that the most important part of your home is it's foundation and we make sure it is done right.

    Delivery

    Your home will be wrapped up and secured on hydraulic flatbeds and shipped to your site. Once onsite we will crane the home onto the foundation, or simply lay it on a concrete pier foundation using hydraulics. Either way our crews will be there every step of the way. Once the modules are in place they will make sure the home is tight and ready for exterior crews to begin work.

    Finishing

    Once a multi section home is installed on the foundation and tight, it is approximately 80% finished, and the finishing work can begin. Finish work includes a little bit of everything - roofing, siding, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, drywall, plaster and paint. On a typical single storey home this would take approximately 4 weeks. A single section home can be ready for occupancy in just a few days from delivery as it only requires utility connections, decking and skirting.
