Modular Home Design
Benefits of Modular
Modular homes are residences built in a controlled factory environment in sections, or modules, and then transported to the construction site. They are then installed on permanent foundation and by professional installers. Modular homes can reduce construction time by 30- 40 percent, getting you into your new home faster so you can enjoy it longer. Traditionally homes can take many months to complete, but modular homes are assembled on site and usually finished within a few weeks from the time they are set. Prefabricated homes offer many advantages because most modular construction can be completed in less time than site-built construction, for example, the cost of interim construction financing is significantly reduced or eliminated.

Home & Site Modeling
Along with the architectural design services Design-Build-Live offers site planning and home modeling. Rarely are building sites ready for setting a mobile home, so we analyze each site to evaluate grading, terrain, site access, and other relevant features. We model your home and your site, both in 3D, to determine the best placement and orientation of your home.
We will also work with you through the actual development and preparations of the site including marking the boundaries of the property and home layout, clearing, and leveling the land as needed, site access including driveways, and adequate clearing for work equipment. We will also work into our models as needed utility placement, easements, hardscaping, or other relevant features.
This service is offered with our architectural design, or for plans that you may already have. By using your building plans, we can model the home to scale for placement in the site model and terrain.
