A Mod is simply a living space or commercial space; a home, a rental suite, office, guest house, pool house, in-law suite, cabin or cottage, multi-unit apartment complex, barber shop, restaurant, etc.
A Mod does not come with its own land, but fits very well as a primary residence or in your back yard as secondary dwelling, or in remote areas and as a cabin or Airbnb.
There are several neighborhoods that have the applicable zoning requirements to accommodate a Mod as a primary or secondary dwelling. Most cities allow you to look up zoning based on your address via their website.
From design, to permits and completion it typically takes 6-12 months. Permits vary by jurisdiction and can be as quick as 1 month or as long as 6+ months. The quicker you begin the pre-construction phase the sooner you can have your home! It typically only takes us 10-12 weeks to actually build your home.
There are a number of ways to finance a Factory-Built Home: Home Equity Line of Credit, Construction Mortgage, Refinance Plus Improvements, Refinance, Purchase Plus Improvements, and many other ways.
We use a highly efficient certified 2lb polyurethane closed cell foam, which essentially eliminates any air gaps or air transfer. This keeps your Mod cool in the summer and warm in the winter while not hurting your wallet!
A Mod is inherently modular, it comes together in modules and can be dismantled back into its original modules. A Mod is typically welded to a permanent foundation and bolted together onsite. With the right tools and approvals, you can relocate your home in the future.
A Mod can be outfitted in a way that it creates more energy through solar energy than it uses on an annual basis, creating a truly green and sustainable living space for generations to come.
Yes, since our R-Series and C-Series are built with used shipping containers the containers may contain small dents or imperfections.
Mods are projected to be shipped within 12 weeks of the construction deposit. This time frame is possible because the bones of each and every Mod stay the same. As much as we would love to let you customize to your hearts content; wall locations, cabinet locations, the placement of fixtures, and mechanical systems in our R-Series are unable to be altered. This ensures efficiency, quality, and speed in the manufacturing process. Our C-Series have more flexible due to the nature of commercial projects.
