  This is a comprehensive list of cost factors in building a modular home. The purpose of the worksheet is to give you lists of inherent costs in building your home. While costs and services tend to vary greatly with location, your estimate will be more accurate if you use this list as a guide to check local costs and / or rates. An additional 5% figure should be added for unforeseen expenses. If the monies are not utilized, it can be re-directed to the costs attributed to moving in.

Notes

You must also consider the location of the house on your site and the amount of clear space necessary for the crane and the boxes in the vicinity of the foundation. If your septic system will be in the set area, you must wait until the house has been set to install the system, otherwise damage to your system will result. Consult with your qualified Modular Solution representative before you start any site work.

This listing is presented as a "guide" to assist you during the planning stages. Each project varies by design.
