As a licensed builder, Today’s Homes can take care of getting the different phases of the building project done, from the beginning to the end. So, you can sit back and watch, or get as involved as you would like in completing the different phases on your own.
We can assist you with:
Getting the right floor plan and options for your needs.
Pulling permits needed for the project.
Site excavation and septic system.
Fresh water wells.
Foundation or basement.
We can complement your building project by building an attached garage, covered porch, sun room, deck or a pole barn.
We can even help guide through insurance replacements caused by unforeseen circumstances.
With site-built construction, contractors do not really “build” a home, they assemble components like we do. Site-builders purchase building components (i.e. roof trusses, studs, floor joist, OSB decking, windows, doors, cabinets, drywall, shingles, electrical wire, bath fixtures, floor coverings, etc.) from local building supply companies that ship these materials to the individual job-sites for assembly. At each job-site, the materials they use are exposed to weather, theft, and vandalism as well as the site-built assembly process is extremely inefficient.
In contrast, our modular manufacturing partners purchase brand name materials direct from the suppliers in large quantities and assemble them in their production facility under controlled conditions, out of the weather. Using sophisticated cutting equipment, precision jigs and overhead cranes to assemble components, the craftsmen that build your home have the benefit of working under “ideal conditions” resulting in efficient and timely construction of your new home.
Building modular, off-site constructed home allows for substantial cost savings in almost every area of the building and financing process.
- Bulk Material Purchases:
Our manufacturing partners purchase lumber and brand name materials in huge quantities resulting in lower cost.
- Controlled Environment:
A clean plant, indoors, avoiding inclement weather, results in greater labor efficiencies, lowering cost. Less Material Waste: Recycling plus warehousing our materials in a secure environment, with protection from weather and job site theft, lower cost.
- Manufacturing Technology:
Precision equipment and efficient material handling result in more accurate construction with fewer mistakes and lower cost.
- Quality Control:
Our homes are built to the appropriate building code required by each state, inspected by both Crest and Independent Third Party Inspection Agencies . This results in fewer construction errors and lower costs.
- Construction Time Period:
Since our homes are delivered to the job site about 75% complete, total construction time is greatly reduced, incurring less interest and quicker occupancy.
- House Plans:
Our manufacturers provide the necessary plans for building permits and complete construction without requiring an architect, lowering costs.
- Financing Cost:
Quicker construction time with fewer interest charges, result in less cost.
- Code Compliance and Quality Control:
All of our modular, off-site constructed homes comply with the International Residential Code (I.R.C.) as well as the National Electrical Code. These are the same State and Local building codes that your local site builders have to comply with.
Every home we build is inspected by an independent third party inspection agency to see that they conform to each state’s building code. Each home undergoes rigid quality control inspections and testing from framing to final finish details including electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems.
- Energy efficiency:
Your energy cost will depend greatly on where you live, what type of heating (natural gas, propane gas, electric or oil) and your life style. Each one of our homes is built with energy conservation in mind. Come in and visit with us and let us show you our energy saving features.
