You have several ways of building your new home: Site Built
Systems Built Homes:
- They are constructed entirely at the building site.
- They conform to all state, local or regional codes where the house is located. o Often called 'stick-built' houses.
- A well-built, cared for site-built home generally increases in value over time, although its location plays a key role in value.
- Construction time can be 6, 9, 12 months depending on weather, availability of materials and subcontractors, and the builder.
- Cost overruns and charge orders are more prevalent.
Also known as modular or factory built.
- Construction time is 30-90 days
- They are built in sections at a factory in a climate controlled environment.
- They are built to conform to all state, local or regional building codes at their destinations.
- They are transported to the building site on truck beds, then joined together by factory and/or local contractors.
- They are sometimes less expensive per square foot than site built houses.
- A well-built systems built home should have the same longevity as its site-built counterpart, increasing in value over time with location playing a key role in value.
