Modular home builders construct a home from "the floor joists up" in controlled conditions within a factory. All elements that depend on actual site conditions are the responsibility of the owner or his/her site contractor. Below is a sample list of what is not typically included in the construction or pricing of a modular home. Keep these items in mind when planning the construction of your new modular home.

  • Land

  • Foundation

  • Utility trenching and installation (telephone, cable, gas, water, sewer and power)

  • Utility hook-ups to modular home after set

  • Plumbing groundwork

  • Furnace and hot water tank

  • Plumbing lines and heating ductwork below floor joists

  • Driveways and sidewalks

  • Eavestroughs and downspouts

  • Basement teleposts

  • Basement windows or doors

  • Window coverings

  • Development and Building permits and fees

  • Engineering costs (i.e. soil tests, engineered foundation)

  • Surveying

  • Final Grading and landscaping

  • Exterior steps to garage or grade

  • Interior staircase (to basement if there is one)

  • Floor covering for interior staircase

  • Exterior hosebibs

  • Parging or "skirting" of foundation

  • Verandahs, porches, decks, railings etc...

  • Garages or garage foundations
