Stay awake and alert while spending money on building a new home! Plan, Then Build – Have the details in place before you start building. That means not just knowing how the floor plan will look but knowing how the rooms will be finished.  This process takes place before you sign final construction contract.  Pick your finishes including cabinets, flooring, tile, windows, doors, etc. Hire the right people.   Make sure you get all licensed contractors and professionals. Make sure they are properly insured.  Make sure the General Contractor has experience. Don’t build too big. Sure, you may have a lot of stuff, and you might look longingly at mansions and want...

Posted by on Dec 27, 2016 in Blog |

Palm Springs a mere 2 hours from Los Angeles, Orange county and San Diego has been a hot bed of modern contemporary architecture  since the 1920’s when visionary modernist architects  designed sleek, modern homes that have embraced the desert environment.  These homes are known as Desert Modernism homes and have been home to many of Hollywood royalty including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., George Hamilton, Bob Hope, Albert Einstein Bing Crosby, Kirk Douglas, Cary Grant, and Jack Benny Desert Modernism design are homes that have a lot  of glass, clean lines,  and contemporary  features while focusing  on outdoor/indoor living to take advantage of the fabulous desert weather...

Custom Homes Built Using Shipping Containers

Posted by on Dec 27, 2016 in Blog |

Shipping Container Homes are environmentally friendly and can also be an affordable option that allows people to make homes they otherwise couldn’t afford to if they used conventional building materials. Homes are springing up around the world featuring the latest trend in green building: Transforming a shipping container into a home. As a home building material, these containers actually have a lot to offer. Because they are abundant, recycling them as a living space is both environmentally friendly and inexpensive (they typically run between $1,000 and $2,000 per container). The steel bones are structurally stronger than a wood frame. They are mold proof, fire proof and termite proof. On...

Turning Shipping Containers Into Tiny Homes

Posted by on Dec 19, 2016 in Blog |

In the world of tiny houses, gone are the days of mere conventional timber framed housing. Tiny homes are built from a wide assortment of materials and structures. From micro eco-pods to converted buses, tiny homes are revolutionizing the way in which we view housing. One of the current trends within tiny home architecture is re-purposed or ‘up-cycled’ shipping containers. This Re-Purposed Shipping Container Turned into a 1 Bedroom ¾ Bath Home is a stunning example of the type of home you can manufacture with a wild imagination on a shoe-string budget. Shipping container construction also referred to as ‘cargotecture’, is a form of architecture that utilized steel intermodal...

Developers & Architects Turn to Prefab Construction to Solve labor Shortage

Posted by on Nov 16, 2016 in Blog |

A persistent labor shortage of construction workers across the U.S. is prompting some of the nation’s largest home builders to experiment with a model they once derided: factory production. In the U.S., only about 2% to 3% of homes built in recent years are classified as modular, according to the Census. In other parts of the world, that share is significantly higher. More than a third of all homes in Austria and Sweden are built using off-site methods, and in Japan more than three-quarters of all detached homes are pre-assembled, according to industry research. But throughout the U.S. housing recovery, builders have suffered from a shortage of skilled labor,...

Retailers Benefit from Mod Stores Built Using Prefab Construction

Posted by on Nov 15, 2016 in Blog |

Retailers seek efficiency and certainty when structuring their plans for expansion. Dialing in target demographics, traffic counts, daytime population and surrounding tenant mix are the key performance metrics used in developing a strong retail growth model and predicting the potential of a new store location before it is even open. In addition, retailers have, over time, begun to decrease their store size and are designing more efficient footprints that cater to the habits and trends of their consumers. Through the process of eliminating wasted space and trimming up costs, finding a better method of project delivery and construction is becoming more necessary. Retailers are now looking to prefab construction...

Why modular? QUALITY: 

The quality of today’s modular home is often unparalleled, due to several factors: Today’s factory equipment is powerful and state-of-the-art, producing a tight, sound and energy efficient home. The materials need to meet a consistently high standard because of the finely calibrated equipment being used in factory. Your home is created in a climate-controlled environment, where the materials are protected from the ravaging effects of weather. The consistency of an overseen, assembly-line process also leaves little room for mistakes or oversights.

DESIGN: 

The new modular homes are designed with the customer’s dream house in mind. From a cozy bungalow to a stately Victorian, your new home is made to order, giving you more creative control than working with most builders and contractors. Inside and out, this is your home, designed to match your vision.

SPEED: 

One of the best points of building modular is the fact that your dream home can be delivered, set and completed in less than 6 months. This is considerably less time than most onsite homes, where weather concerns, small or inconsistent construction crews, back orders and equipment problems are just a few of the reasons for delay.

It's Green! 

Green Building is a whole-system approach to building that takes into consideration 7 factors: 1. Lot Design, Preparation and Development, 2. Resource Efficiency, 3. Energy Efficiency, 4. Water Efficiency, 5. Indoor Environmental Quality, 6. Operation Maintenance and Homeowner Education, and 7. Global Impact, or, in other words, using products that are not harmful to the environment while partnering with other companies/suppliers that also work to protect the environment. Bottom line is that we are certified and committed to building the very smartest, greenest custom homes on the market.

It’s guaranteed. 

Your new home comes with a 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty® (2-10 HBW®) that includes 10 full years of structural defect coverage for load-bearing components; 2 full years of systems coverage against defects in wiring, piping and ductwork in electrical, plumbing, heating, cooling, ventilating and mechanical systems; and 1 full year of coverage against defects in workmanship and materials.

It’s very easy.
