Eco-Friendly Homes with Modular Construction – New Bern, NC

Even though interest rates are rising, they are still low and many are trying to take advantage. Additionally, home inventory is low, so more families are opting to build a home.

Homes built with modular construction have many advantages including energy efficiency, style and economics. At HandCrafted Homes Builders we offer hundreds of modular home floor plans and  styles with state-of-the-art craftsmanship.

Our modular homes are stronger and greener than traditional construction. All our modular homes are built in a controlled environment which allows us to build homes from the inside out. During construction, the modules are constantly subjected to quality-assurance inspections more frequently than is economically feasible on site. This means that modular homes stand up better to both weather and time.

For those of you who want to build green, the modular construction process itself makes our homes more eco-friendly.  Modular construction eliminates bowed walls and the taller wall panels eliminate horizontal joints which account for reducing air infiltration by up to 60%!  All of our homes are ENERGY STAR® ready. This means that it is ready to be installed by one of our builder partners as an ENERGY STAR® certified home.

As the real estate market rebounds, and more homeowners decide to build. For more information on modular construction, contact Handcrafted Homes Builders
