What It's About:
Modular construction is a method that takes a home plan, divides it into modules that can be built in a factory, and then ships it on a carrier to a home site. What many don't realize, however, is that just about any home can be built offsite—even custom homes with intricate designs. As a custom builder, turning any part of the construction process, much less 75%-85% of the home, can be a scary proposition. But as the home building industry faces grueling labor constraints and unpredictable material cost, the time has come for all builders, even those focusing on a small volume of unique dwellings, to build smarter. In this presentation, you'll hear from Ken Semler, a builder that utilizes modular construction for homes nationwide, on how modular can meet your needs. A pioneer of the modular industry, Ken recently partnered with ArchitecturalDesigns.com to take over 6,000 home plans and certify their ability to be built using modular construction.
