WE ARE HOME BUILDERS

Did you know that in Texas, site-built home builders are not licensed but modular home builders are? And as a licensed modular home builder, Lone Star Modular Homes runs it business just like any site-builder would. We design the home, spec it out, and then build it. Both modular and site-built homes are “stick-built” homes. “Stick-Built” simply means building your home one stud at at time.  We just choose to build the home in a factory environment to better control costs and quality.

All of the materials – from framing, roofing, and plumbing to cabinetry, interior finish, and electrical – are identical to what you would find in conventional site built new home. The most important thing to understand about modular construction: it is not a product or a style of home, but it is a “construction technique”.

ALL BUILDERS USE SOME MODULARIZATION

Technically anything built and bought off site is modular. Site builders modularize parts of the home too. Items like pre-hung doors and windows, cabinet units, and roof trusses are modular as opposed to built on site. Site builders use them because they can be built better and more cost effectively by specialists in a factory than they can be built on site from raw materials. A typical site-built home may use up to 30% modularized components. Some builders have even extended this approach to include larger components, such as panelized walls and pre-formed concrete foundation systems.

We look at modular homes the same way. They are made of sections built in a factory because it drives down cost and time while improving quality controls, and the rest we build on site. Imagine what it would mean to the cost and quality of your next car if it were assembled in your driveway often in rainy conditions. You can begin to understand why modular is the natural next step for new home construction in Texas.

BUILT TO THE SAME CODES

Modular or site-built, the homes are built to the same exact building codes. The State of Texas has adopted the International Residential Code for One- and Two-Family Dwellings  for both modular homes and site builders. This means modular homes are using exactly the same construction techniques and materials as are site builders.

But factory construction allows for much tighter construction, temperature, and moisture controls and quality assurance oversight not found when building on site. Our factory partners were chosen because the construction techniques and material selections they use meet our high expectations.

QUALIFY FOR THE SAME MORTGAGES

Since a single family modular home is built to a local building code just like a regular home, it is also financed just like any other home. It qualifies for FHA, VA, USDA, and Conventional Mortgage loans.

Furthermore, modular homes will appreciate over time just like a site-built home, will enjoy the same interest rates as site-built homes, you will have a full choice of lenders, and the same home insurance coverage options as site-built homes.
