Frequently Asked Questions

Ready Built- Modular - Manufactured, what's the difference?

Ready builts are a fully constructed pier and beam home that are built on our yard and moved to any location throughout Texas. Manufactured home often referred to as mobile homes or trailers represent an entirely different type of building system than ready built homes and are constructed to a different building standard. This standard, the Federal Construction Safety Standards Act (HUD/CODE], unlike conventional building codes, requires manufactured homes to be constructed on non-removable steel chassis. Many communities have placed restriction on where manufactured homes may be located. Ready built homes look like any other home. Ready built construction doesn't stop with houses. We can produce many different types of engineered structure, such as banks, schools, office builds, and hotels.

How does a Ready Built save time in the construction process?

All this work has been going on simultaneously with work at the home site during the permitting, surveying, grading, and the building of the foundation phase. This is not possible with a site built home.

What if I want to do some of the finishing work myself?

Most of our homes are delivered 98% completed with the remaining finishing touches done when the home is on site. Though we can construct to any stage.

Are there expenses other than those previously mentioned that I should anticipate?

Yes, after your home is delivered, in addition to complete set up, it will be necessary to complete the plumbing, electrical, and gas hook ups. These items and others can be included in our contract proposal. We will also advise you whether any other the services will be required during the "set" stage of your home, and can include it in our contract if it is.

Can I really customize my Ready Built?

Absolutely. The process starts by reviewing plans to find the kind of home you want. The number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and square feet can be used as the basis of our design and then the customization begins. We are able to alter many plans to fit the site to utilize the natural surroundings.

Can I get a garage with my Ready Built?

Yes! Because of the need to transport the essentially finished structure over the highway, these and other requested attachments such as porches and decks are generally constructed on site after your home is delivered and set.

Are there a lot of features to choose from?

Of course. We have a number of suppliers that you will be able to select almost everything from the hardwood floors to the crown moldings to custom cabinets stainless appliances and your choice of lighting fixtures.

How long will it take to build my home?

This depends on the size of the house and the amenities you choose. With consistent quality and speed being one of the advantages of this type construction, a home consisting of two modules can be manufactures in about three to four weeks. Once this is complete, the finished modules are transferred to the building site and set on the foundation. The final completion, which is usually handled by a local builder or contractor who does the final finish work and utility connections and can often be complete within about three to five weeks. Keep in mind that weather does not affect the building of the modules like a site built home, which is the major portion of the construction process. Weather can however affect the initial surveying, grading, and building of the foundation, and also to a much lesser degree, the finishing up after delivery of the module.

What if I want to do some of the finishing work myself?

Most of our homes are delivered 98% completed with the remaining finishing touches done when the home is on site. Though we can construct to any stage.
