AOLD HARBOR HOMES LLC
The house arrived in 4 pieces. It was set on the foundation and connected, 8 hours later there was a house on our lot.  Finish work took about 8 months to complete.  We have never had an issue with this house.  Keith Hutchings did a wonderful job. This house is more than we ever expected. It is extremely well insulated and the craftmanship is excellent.  Keith's team is unlike other builders I have used. They clean up after themselves, ask questions, stay in contact with the owner. This process couldn't be easier.  People are afraid of not having options or have a poorly built house when they think modular, don't!  They are so much cheaper, you can design them any way you want, it is quick- you get the instant gratification of having an house up in an afternoon.   We love our house and are so happy that we choose Old Harbor Homes to build it.

APentagon Builders Inc
Mike's Pentagon Builders saved me! I was way over my head with my modular home. I remembered I had used Pentagon Builders years ago in my parents’ home with excellent results and realized it was time to contact Pentagon Builders once again. Thankfully, Mike stepped in to get me to completion. He discussed all options and listened to my wants and needs. He worked miracles on my build. He and his crew were kind, neat, and professional. Due to Pentagon builders I now have the beautiful home I wanted. I will be using Pentagon Builders for all my new projects.

AE and L Builders
E&L Builders handled our tear down and new build for stem to stern. OUr situtation was a little weird, but E&L took us on with enthusiam and focus. Our design was approved by Arlington Permits in May, the house was demolished un July, the modular home arrived in August and we occupied by Thanksgiving. What a whilrwind and all down very well. They handled all aspects of design documents, permit review, project coordination and supervision of final inspections. Clark from E&L was our main contact and was steadfast in keepingour project on track while his company was in their biggest year for projects. So we intejected our proejct into their 2005 work plan and they handled our project alongside everything else. They did a great job and were totally stand up. We would recommend E&L to anyone thinking of a modular building project and we would be happy to entertain a visit to our home to see the results of what we consider a quality project.

AUNIQUE CONSTRUCTION
We cannot say enough good things about Unique Construction and the company s owner, Mr. Jimmy Dean. We interviewed 6 other builders before selecting Mr. Dean. Quite simply, he is one of the nicest people we have ever met. Also one of the most conscientious, responsible, trustworthy, generous, patient and fair-minded. Mr. Dean s work is outstanding. After 35 years of experience, he knows construction inside and out, and he has a long list of references who sing his praises. He is a perfectionist who will not rest until he is certain he has done the job right and the client is satisfied. He never takes shortcuts; he always wants to do the job the right way, as he puts it, even if it entails more time and effort on his part. Mr. Dean stayed within budget and finished on schedule. He never nickle-and-dimed us. Quite the opposite, in fact. He gave us a number of items we never thought to ask for in the contract (e.g., back splashes for counters, mirrors larger than requested, extra towel bars, etc.), and yet he never charged an extra cent for these additional items. And towards the end of the project, he agreed to take on some additional work which we had neglected to include in the contract. Until we insisted on paying him for this additional work, he had no intention of billing us for it. Additionally, Mr. Dean has an artist s eye and impeccable taste. For example, when tiling our showers, he offered to create border designs for them. As a result, we ended up with two gorgeous showers instead of the plain, unadorned ones we had planned. Mr. Dean keeps the work site impeccably clean. (In fact, during the project, our town inspector was bringing other builders to our house to show them an example of what a well maintained site looks like). Mr. Dean did an excellent final clean-up and left the property in pristine condition. Finally, throughout the project, Mr. Dean was extremely easy to reach by phone as well as email. As first-time remodelers, we tended to get nervous about things. Almost every evening we sent Mr. Dean at least one email (sometimes a whole barrage of emails) asking him questions about various issues. He promptly (and very patiently) replied to every single email, responding to every question and concern raised. And unlike other builders who disappear once the project is complete (or in some cases, even before the project is complete), Mr. Dean has remained just as reachable as always, even after completion of the job. Mr. Dean does both modular construction and conventional construction. We chose a modular addition. (A modular house or addition is indistinguishable from a conventionally built house or addition. However, modular construction is much faster, less disruptive, usually less costly, and environmentally friendlier. And modular structures are less prone to mold). In summation, it has been an absolute delight working with Mr. Dean, and we would hire him again in a heartbeat.

FE and L Builders
Lots of mistakes during building process. Working with Clark to fix issues with Heating and Air system and gaps in hardwood floor. Not very responsive lately.  Let me know if you are considering using E & L and need more info.  I have lots of interesting and strange stories about our dealings with Clark. For example: After Clark finished the second floor several cracks appeared over about 4 months in our walls on the first floor.  Clark said he wanted to wait until 12 months have passed before coming and fixing the cracks.  Then after 12 months he told us the cracks were not the result of the new floor being added, he said they were the result of the first floor settling.  I thought that was very strange, because they did add 15 tons of weight on top of our house.  He insisted that the weight was so well distributed, that it didn't cause the cracks.  I told him that I thought settling was when the ground (after being recently dug up for the foundation) settled and caused the house to move slightly and this could cause cracks.  He said, "yes, your first floor is settling and its not the addition that is causing it".  I told him I thought it was strange for a house built in 1964 to just now decide to settle.  Again he insists that the new cracks were not the result of his work.  Very strange. The heat pump Clark added freezes up and makes a lot of noise during damp and cold nights.  He says there is nothing wrong with it.  I have googled this and see it is a common issue when the defroster is defective. Another quick example is the hardwood floors have a 4 mm crack right down the seam of the two halves of the modular.  Clark is saying that we need to use a humidifier and it will go away.  It is clear that it is the result of the modular shifting (also probably the same cause of the cracks downstairs).

ABay State Leisure Homes, Inc
The job went extremely well. Bay State was prompt, efficient and gave great value. Chris Priore, the owner, is a stickler for quality. On the few occasions when his guys did something that he didn't think was well done, he made them rip it out and start over. (He didn't know I was looking). Chris is also a good planner and problem solver. He would regularly foresee upcoming staging issues and have a plan in place so that the work did not slow down. Also, there were problems on a number of occasions for which he came up with great work-arounds. One example: Our previous contractor had miscalculated the two planes of the porch roof so that they were not going to join correctly and would look terrrible. Chris thought on it and came up with a clever use of molding to hide the defect. The Bay State guys were on the job every day cranking out the work and finished on schedule. We were very pleased with the end result.

ASHORT HILL DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION, LTD
Working with Chuck (owner) and Jose (foreman) at Short Hill was amazing. We were really lucky to find them. We originally started working with a builder from Middleburg who was controlling and unpleasant. He was qualified, but we didn't click, so we stopped the process. We instantly clicked with Chuck and are so glad we chose him. He was very patient with our constant changes of mind and indecision. He worked hard to cram as much value into our frugal budget as possible and never pressured us to spend more. He clearly enjoys his work, has years of building experience, and has knowledge of just about anything you could think of related to building. And he's just a very nice guy. He even came up with clever ideas to ease the stress on our elderly cats, and found a way for us to have access to the washer/dryer so we wouldn't have to use a laundromat for 6 weeks. Those were our 2 biggest concerns and he personally took it upon himself to ease our stress. He has a variety of very talented, trustworthy sub-contractors that he's worked with for years, which was comforting. Once we decided on a design, the job moved along surprisingly quickly - 6 weeks to basically restructure the bones of the house and rebuild the interior of the living end of the house. The site was kept as clean as possible, inside and out. The carpentry was excellent, all the detail work neat and sharp. Jose ran the show competently day to day, and Chuck was by regularly and did some of the work himself - especially the creative, unique features. We had absolutely no complaints - Chuck and Jose are even pickier than us, and take great pride in a job done right, and leave nothing undone. We are still stunned at how smoothly and pleasantly this project went. It was truly a pleasure working with Short Hill. And we hope to have them back for future projects.

Mike Fusco Builder
Business Description: PLEASE GO TO MY WEBSITE * http://www.mikefuscobuilder.com *Full service residential contractor. I have recovered from some health issues and I am fully back to work. Custom Modular Homes, Custom Site Built Homes, Custom Remodeling. 37 years construction Experience. 32 years construction management 22 years as a licensed GC. I generally work within a hour drive of Strasburg Virginia. Some estimates I charge for or require a deposit. This is if I must draw plans or many hours of work are required. Most estimates I do not charge for. When I need to draw up plans I need to charge for that time and will apply this cost toward the project if I am hired. Only contact the phone number or email on my website. The experience thus far in Virginia has been a really good one. Happy to work with DIY clients. I also offer modular home owner builder packages. You can save some money without the risks involved with stick building. I have a cad design program and a 3D home design program. The 3D program is good for letting a client see what a project will look like before it is constructed. The CAD design program can display 3D but is less user friendly. My service area for projects would be NOVA as far out to Manassas and up to Ashburn and through the Northern Shenandoah Valley. At about a hour drive from Strasburg Virginia. I may travel farther for larger projects, just call to see if I am able to work on the project. The picture on the Angie's List website is of a remodeling project I completed. For now please go to my website to see pictures of projects. I am a General Contractor and work on larger projects and I also work on smaller projects. Sometimes small projects lead to larger projects. NOTE: I am lead paint RRP certified, thus, houses built before 1978 will be on a case by case basis for remodeling.

What Do Modular Homes Cost?

Modular homes cost between 10 and 20 percent less than comparable stick-built homes. For a ranch home that might cost $250,000, you can get a new modular home for $211,638, saving you $38,362.

Just as the homes near your neighborhood have different amenities and prices, so too do modular homes. A pricing factor unique to modular homes is the travel distance between the home's construction factory and your homesite, though the freight charge is minimal. Consider these price factors for a three-bedroom, two-bathroom 1,780-square-foot ranch house:

  • Land: $15,000
  • Base home price: $93.000
  • Customizations: $32,000
  • Site Preparation: $6,500
  • Foundations: $22,250
  • Taxes, fees and freight: $10,906
  • Button-up work (connections, travel repairs, interior finishing): $17,000
  • On-site construction: $10,000
  • Utilities hookups: $3,000
  • Permits: $1,982

What are Modular Homes?

Let's get this out of the way immediately: a modular home is not a recreational vehicle.

A modular home does not sit on wheels. It goes nowhere. It is a less expensive way to build the home of your dreams than having a house built stick by stick on site.

Modular homes are factory-built homes crafted using the benefits of assembly line manufacturing and the craftsmanship of individually built homes. Rather than order one kitchen sink, a modular home builder orders 100 kitchen sinks, gaining deep discounts for volume. Storing all the building materials at a factory not only saves money, it protects everything, increases efficiency, and reduces labor costs. 

Modular homes are planned, designed, cut, laid out and assembled in a large indoor space. Weather does not delay work; materials are at ideal working temperatures year-round. 

Advantages of Modular Homes

Sure, a modular home is 10 to 20 percent less expensive than a stick-built home built on your property, but is it better or stronger? 

Since the materials are warehoused and can allow a manufacturer to turn out new homes weekly, more money can be spent on better quality materials while still gaining bulk discounts. Substandard raw materials can be weeded out, rather than worked into a home. 

Every home is inspected at every stage of construction in the factory, before third-party inspectors see the finished product. 

Modular homes often have to travel in pieces for hundreds of miles. They are built solidly to withstand the road trip, so they can easily withstand the occasional windy day once in place on your site.
