The single biggest difference between a system-built home and one built on-site is the building location, one is built on site and the other is built at an off-site Build Center with all of the advantages that go with that. Both are built to the same building code with the same materials. A site-built home has no financing advantage, no appraisal advantage and no appreciation advantage over a custom system-built home. Our homes have 10-year structural warranty at no additional cost, something very few site-built homes even offer. A system-built home is over-built so that it can be transported to the site and set on the foundation.
Just about anywhere that is accessible for the trucks that deliver the house. Before entering into a contract for the sale of a house, we review the building site and route to confirm that we will be able to get the house onto the site.
