What is a Ready- to- Move Home? Is it the same as a modular or mobile home?
A Ready-to-Move home is NOT the same as a modular or mobile home.
Modular homes are typically constructed in factories in two or more pieces. The pieces are then sent to the site to be fitted together.
Mobile homes are prefab factory built structures that are permanently attached to a chassis before being transported to site. The materials used are typically not comparable to those used in stick or ready-to-move building, making them restricted in many areas.
Our Ready-To-Move homes are fully constructed and finished on our yard, and the completed home is loaded onto moving beams connected to the moving truck. The home is then delivered to your site and placed onto your foundation. The process and materials used for building our homes are very similar to those used in constructing site-built homes. Almost every aspect of your home can be customized to suit your needs and wants.
What type of materials and processes are used in your Ready-To-Move homes?
At Freeland Home Builders, LLC, we always “Build it like we own it.” We use high-quality materials and stay up-to-date on building processes and modern technology.
Our homes are inspected by a Certified Building Official, ensuring that every aspect meets or exceeds the IRC Building Codes.
Can I change the floor plan?
Yes, you can. We have a selection of plans available that we build, but can also modify any of our existing plans. The options for your Ready-To-Move home are almost limitless.
Can I choose the colors, cabinets, flooring, etc. for my home?
Of course! The choices are endless, and they are up to you. We have a large selection of samples and can also direct you to several of our suppliers for an expanded selection of some of the products for your home. When you are ready to purchase your home, call to set up an appointment, and we will help you through the process of choosing everything you will need.
What type of equipment and processes are used to load, move and unload a Ready-to-Move home?
We employ the services of a mover who is licensed, bonded and insured and has over 50 years of experience.
Can these homes be moved to coastal regions?
Yes, they can be moved to lower lying areas with higher elevation requirements and set on stilt foundations.
Does a Ready-to-Move home get damaged during the move?
Freeland Home Builders, LLC takes extra steps during the construction process to minimize any damage that may be done to the home during the moving process. However, almost all houses will experience some minor cosmetic damage, such as drywall cracking and nail pops. Some of the fixtures in your home (solid surface countertops and some light fixtures) will not be installed in your home before the move to protect them from damage. After the home is moved onto your property and power is hooked up, we will send service people to repair those damages caused by the move and install any remaining fixtures and materials not previously installed.
