Good question! How many words can you use for the same thing?!
They’re all trying to describe the same thing – a home built in a factory and then transported to site once it is nearly 100% complete. One thing to be clear about – a ‘kit home’ is something quite different.
A ‘kit home’ is just all the materials you need to build a house and then you have to either build it yourself or employ a builder (a.k.a. hard work!). A modular home comes out of our factory fully built and just needs to be delivered to site and placed on its foundations – which we do for you.
So call them what you like – ‘Modular Homes’ is the predominant term used these days.
The advantage of a Modular Home?
Most folks think the advantage of modular homes would be that they’re much cheaper than traditional building. Perhaps if you wanted very standardised homes without the ability to customise them to your needs they would be a cheaper option. We believe the fantastic advantage of modular building is that we can give you a fixed price and a delivery time. What you’re getting is COST CERTAINTY. Building a home is a scary process. Research shows that on typical building projects, 61% run behind schedule and 49% run over budget. With Uniplan and our modular building system we give you cost certainty.
What benefit does Uniplan offer?
Our mantra is to “Make it Easy”. Everything, right from the beginning of the sales and design process, is designed to make it as easy as possible for our clients. We will come and inspect your site to make sure access is OK. We handle the entire council process for you from start to finish. We give you concept drawings and budgetary pricing so you can evaluate different options at the early stages so you can work out your best option. We can steer you in the right direction for finance as we have some great banking partners we work with. In a nut shell, we love whatever Uniplan can do to make the home building process easy and hassle-free. Right at the moment we are finding new ways to keep our clients better informed during the building process as it’s important for you to know what is happening at each stage of the way.
