What are Modular Homes and How Much do they Cost?

Modular homes are a great option for individuals or families who want to have their own home that’s unique and personal to them but doesn’t want the hassle and expense of building from scratch.

Currently, less than 10% of homes in the UK are modular, but that number continues to grow every year due to the array of benefits modular homes offer. But what is a modular home? And more importantly, what is the cost of one, both financially and in terms of practicality?

At ModCon Cabins, a UK-based modular home expert, we’ve taken the time to break down the necessary information for you in this informative blog.

What is a Modular Home?

A modular home is a prefabricated home that’s constructed in sections inside a factory setting and then shipped to the designated location before being assembled on-site. This type of construction offers several advantages over traditional on-site construction methods.

Modular homes are built to local building regulations prior to being shipped and the sections can either be bolted together or snapped in place, depending entirely on the type of modular home.

The Benefits of a Modular Home?

Modular homes have various benefits to both the construction process and the homeowner.

One of the main benefits modular homes offer is quality control. All modular sections are built under controlled conditions within the factory, meaning that variations, discrepancies and issues that are often caused by weather or on-site labour delays can be eliminated during the build process.

Given the specific approach to construction, modular homes can also be completed in a shorter period of time. This means that modular homeowners are able to move into their property at a quicker rate than those building from scratch or buying an established property. At ModCon Cabins, we specialise in a swift and prompt construction process to bring your home to you as soon as possible.

Additionally, every modular home that we manufacture is built from the finest materials available on the market, something that is not often used by competitors or in conventional construction methods. This brings a new level of quality to our modular homes, making them more durable and long lasting.

How much does a Modular Home cost?

In terms of cost, modular homes offer greater value for money per square meter than other traditional construction methods. Depending on the size and design, modular homes can cost as little as £300-£1,500 per square meter compared to £3,000 per square meter for conventional buildings.

The price for a modular home can however fluctuate when a number of factors are considered. This includes:

  • The type of materials that are used
  • The size of the modular home being built
  • The design layout of the building
  • Necessary site preparation needed prior to installation
