FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is a Modular Home?

Modular homes are essentially the same as a site-built home built by your local builder G&G Construction, Inc. only installs BOCA-style modular homes which are built to the same building code as a site-built home.

What is a Modular Home Shell?

An unfinished modular home, also called a "shell", is a modular home that arrives from the factory, is set up by G&G Construction, Inc. on your foundation, and has finished exterior walls, windows and doors, a roof and sub-flooring, but does not have drywall, plumbing, electrical, siding, cabinets, fixtures and flooring. The cost of a modular shell is more than half of a finished modular home. Call us at 888-993-6437 to find out more about Modular Shells.

What are the benefits of a Modular Home?

A modular home is constructed in a controlled environment and then transported to your site in sections by G&G Construction, Inc. Since your home is constructed in a controlled environment, it can be completed within a fraction of the time as compared to site-built homes because the construction process is not slowed by weather, theft and other factors.

Modular Home vs. Manufactured (Mobile) Home

Modular homes are not the same as "manufactured homes". Manufactured homes, or mobile homes, are another type of building system. Many communities have restrictions on where manufactured homes can be located. Modular homes and site-built homes are constructed to the same building code required by your state, county and specific locality and therefore are not restricted by building or zoning regulations.

Cost & Financing a Modular Home

Banks and Lending Institutions treat BOCA modular homes and site-built homes as the same type of construction for financing. You will find that the price of a modular home is almost always lower per square foot than a traditional or "stick" built home of comparable size.

What is included in the "Base Price" of your homes?

G&G Construction, Inc. base price includes delivery and setup of your home within 100 miles of Spruce, Michigan. The base price also includes all of the standard items that come with the home (see the manufacturer's spec sheets for more details). The base price does NOT include your site preparation work such as the foundation or basement, well, septic, porches, decks, etc.

How long does it take from start to finish to get a modular home?

On average, it takes between 4-5 months from the time you place your order until you can move in. Factors such as the type of home you purchase, the amount of lot clearing & excavation your site requires, the county you will be building in, the addition of a garage, porches or decks, all influence the amount of time it takes to complete your project.
