This is a great way for practitioners of sustainable living to take it to the next level.
What are Modular Homes?
Modular homes are residences built-in a climate controlled factory environment in sections, or modules, and then transported to the construction site, where you have purchased the land. Once completed, they are installed on permanent foundations and completed by professional installers. It is also a possibility to install without a foundation, in some areas.
Modular homes can reduce construction time by more than 35 percent, (4 months to build) getting you into your new home faster, so you can enjoy it longer. Site-built homes can take a couple of years to complete, while modular homes are assembled on site and usually finished within a week.
Thanks to innovations such as solar energy shingles, spray-in airtight insulation, and energy-efficient windows and doors, many modular homes satisfy the Green friendly requirements out of the box, plus there is a tax break in the US. These modern construction designs are up to 90% more energy-efficient than traditional construction methods.
The pricing is a mix bag for these eco-friendly homes. There are modular homes that can be completed for $18,000 – $500,000.

“The future is here now, why use methods that have not evolved in 50 years? Let’s be the change we want to see. Choose sustainable housing.” We have the technology we need to implement it and adopt it faster.
