Ready to Go Green with a Modular Home?

by Eden Homes 09/22/2019

Being environmentally conscious is important to you. Your goal is to produce less waste in as many avenues as possible. You want to control your carbon footprint. If any of these statements describe you take a moment before you start drawing up plans for a stick-built home and consider your modular options. Prefabricated houses are an excellent option for those seeking to build green and live sustainably. Here are some of the ways you can go green by buying a prefab.

Less waste during the initial build. There are many ways modular home manufacturers can control waste, where traditional builders can't. Each home, or section, is built to the same specifications, so estimates for material needs are more accurate and prevent builders from purchasing in excess. Workers assemble the same parts or series of designs multiple times, rather than creating completely different models for each project. Continuity gives them the ability to hone their craft and produce a quality piece each time. Factories can invest in stationary technology and machines to help workers ensure accuracy.

Quality materials and build equal less waste later. Modular homes build to tight specifications, and builders follow strict guidelines in controlled environments, so there is less risk of error during the initial build. Such a process can save on the cost of materials to repair mistakes found soon after the home is complete. The construction of modular homes is also sturdier than stick-built homes. Prefabricated pieces typically use more joists and framing in a tighter build so that they can withstand travel from the factory to your property. Sturdier construction will delay and even permanently prevent the need for repairs and remodeling from home aging or weather damage.

Energy efficiency for less waste over time. Builders construct modular homes to be highly energy efficient. Strategic placement of bathrooms and kitchen allow for shorter piping systems that transport hot water more efficiently. Quality control during construction prevents gaps and seep between floors and walls for better environmental monitoring. These homes help you save energy and reduce your carbon footprint throughout their lifetime.

Affordable green technology. Modular homes are more cost effective to build and install than traditional stick-built homes. The cost savings allows the builder, and you, more room in the budget to upgrade to high-efficiency furnaces, air conditioning systems, and appliances. Additions like solar paneling become an option from the start and help you enter your new green life on the right foot. For living green, a modular home might be the best option for you. Speak with your property realtor and lender about your eco-friendly home desires to get the best advice for your home purchase.
