System-built homes are engineered to be strong. In fact, a government study by FEMA following hurricane Andrew found that system built homes performed better then standard site-built homes. The report says: “System-built homes appear to have provided an inherently rigid system that performed much better then conventional residential framing.”
A stronger home is a safer home. Your home will last longer, require less maintenance and sustain less damage in the event of an earthquake, hurricane, wind storm, etc.
During the construction process, our prefab homes generate about 80% less waste then standard site built homes. A controlled factory setting allows us to use construction materials in a more efficient manner. In addition, waste and poor workmanship caused by weather is eliminated. The National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) states, “There are tremendous benefits to building parts of the home in a controlled facility, materials are protected from the weather and used in a more efficient manner.”
ENERGY STAR qualified appliances use 10% to 50% less energy than standard appliances. ENERGY STAR qualified appliances save energy, save money, and help reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants.
BENEFITS OF ENERGY STAR QUALIFIED APPLIANCES
1) Lower Utility Bills. Appliances account for nearly 20% of the average household’s energy use. A comprehensive package of ENERGY STAR qualified appliances can save up to $80 a year in energy costs compared to standard appliance
2) Improved Quality and Durability. Energy-efficient appliances often include quality components surpassing those found in standard appliances.

The Price Builder will give you a pre site quote pricing depending on the information you provide it. There are a number of factors that influence pricing such as engineering requirements, shipping distance, local contractor costs, finish materials options selection, lot complexity and site location. In general, the finished ADU home including all the onsite costs such as foundation, driveway, utilities, excavation, decks, and finish materials, cost anywhere between $290 to $360 per sqft. Once our sales specialists are given the full site feasibility report by our on site engineers after your property inspection, you would get the statement of work with the final price in the contract.
