Comparing Methods of Construction

Here at Custom Smart Homes, we specialize in the modular construction of your new home. However, we are aware that there are other methods out there so here is a comparison of the options available to custom home buyers. As always, if you have any questions or concerns at any time during your thought process or as you choose the option for you, please contact us. We look forward to assisting you during this exciting time!

A custom home can be built in one of two fashions, our preferred method of modular or the more traditional stick method. There are some major differences between the two that can be highlighted by looking at some major thinking points.

The Natural Factors

It is no secret that Mother Nature possesses a fury like nothing else. While the weather here in Eastern Tennessee is usually calm, it can get a little rocky at times. When considering your method of new home construction, it is important to keep Mother Nature and her possible effects on your plans in mind.

A traditional stick built home is built right on your property. While this may seem like a good idea, it can be a bit troublesome when you consider the weather. Being as these properties are constructed in the elements they are certainly open to anything that may happen. Weather may also force your builder to change their timeline, meaning you may also have to change your moving timeline.

On the other hand, a modular structure is not built on site. Rather it is built in our climate controlled factory allowing us to work through any weather conditions. Being built inside also protects the structure from any debris that may be kicked up during a storm.

Selling In the Future

Selling a traditional stick built home is something that can be handled either by the owner, or ideally by a real estate agent looking to get the most out of the property.

However, if you plan to sell your manufactured home, there are a few things you are going to want to check. The most important of which is, if you have leased the property the home is on because you live in a community, make sure that the home can stay where it is.

At Custom Smart Homes, we look forward to creating dreams for each of you. As you make your construction choice, feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have.
