My brother-in-law works for a modular home production company.
He drove the truck loaded with a modular affordable home, and he helped set up on the property where it would stand for the next several decades.
He loved his job and said the houses were easy to set up, but they didn’t build them as well as they could be. He said it took a team of five people to take the modular affordable home off the truck and put it together. It came in two pieces and they put them together with large clips. Once all the trimming was in place, you didn’t know where one part of the modular affordable home started and the other ended. He said they called them modular affordable homes, but the cost was almost twice as much as it cost to build them, even when you added in the shipping and men’s pay for putting it up on the property. I looked into a modular affordable home after my divorce. I didn’t want to keep the farmhouse I lived in during my marriage, and I didn’t want to take it from my ex. He gave me a settlement, but I didn’t want to spend it all on a home. When I saw the price I had to pay for a modular affordable home, I rented an apartment for a while and saved the money. Eventually, I would find a home I really liked, and it would be a home and not just a modular home. I didn’t need to buy a home within weeks of being divorced.
