Advantages of Modular Homes
Typically Modular Homes price out from 25% to 30% less then a contractor manufactured home. These price reductions are a result of the benefits resulting from factory modular construction.
Raw materials are bought in quantity, instead of by the Home, resulting in a much reduced material cost. Whenever a modular home is constructed, it uses efficient construction assembly techniques. Further there are never any weather delays which results in a greatly reduced labor cost.
Savings in Time:
Modular built houses are built much quicker than conventional homes. Once the Design plans are approved by the County, the home is then scheduled for manufacture. At that point, it takes just a few weeks for the Modular house to be finished and ready to ship to the site or lot. At the same time, that the design and the home manufacture is occurring, the builder or home owner can work at preparing the site.
Typically a regular site built house would not begin until the lot was totally prepared,which of course just adds more time to completion. In addition, Modular homes are inspected several times during the manufacturing process and are at least 80% complete when they arrives at a building site, which greatly reduces time constraints for any inspections.
Modular homes are built inside a controlled Factory Environment.
The house and it's building components are always well protected and are never subject to destructive weather conditions such as rain and wind. Meaning your Modular home will never be subjected to the bad weather results such as excess moisture soaked lumber, damaged drywall, wet insulation and warped doors.
Modular houses typically go up in value the same as a conventionally built home. In fact once they are finished it is generally difficult to see the differences between conventionally built homes and modular homes.

A Jacobsen Home is naturally Green due to the way our homes are constructed. Our controlled building environment allows us to store materials inside out of the weather, reducing moisture content in the lumber and other susceptible building materials we use. Our construction methods also produce less waste, reduces labor cost, and conserves energy. We recycle products to prevent the waste of potentially useful materials, which reduces the consumption of fresh raw materials, and reduces Energy consumed in conventional waste disposal. This all adds to the lowering of Greenhouse gases.
