Inspecting Your Transportable Home

 

Make around three appointments (depends on the duration of your construction period) to see your transportable home being built at various stages.

Seeing your portable home being made in a systemised environment is a very unique experience. Some of the automated robotic factories that produce relocatable homes are colossal in size. The employee numbers far exceed the numbers of staff and labourers you would ordinarily see working on a traditionally built home on a block of land. These types of factories are very occupational health and safety conscious; earmuffs, hard hats and safety glasses are compulsory. You will be guided through the factory to your transportable homes location on the production-line in this extremely busy workplace with many restricted areas.

Depending on the level of automation, your portable home may remain stationary or slowly progress daily down the production-line as stages are completed. Regardless, your home will be amongst many other relocatable homes in various stages of construction. It is very impressive to see so many people working on your home at any one time. Carpenters, electricians, plumbers, inspectors, building supplier representatives, fellow home-owners and forklift drivers all busy working on the homes as needed. Once finishing their portion of the work; they move to the next portable home. This is one of the great benefits that is unique to premanufactured modular homes; the tradesmen are hired full-time in most cases and are readily available. Unlike traditional building methods where there are quite often long delays waiting for tradesmen to arrive; as they juggle many clients projects at the one time in an effort to make more money.

Typically, you could expect to see between one and six other transportable homes being built at the same time as yours, depending on the company. The completion of a relocatable home building is between 10 and 60 working days; with 3 months being the average delivery time.

 

Transportable Homes Appointments

Make sure you discuss your need to view and visit the modular homes progress during construction with your premanufactured homes building contractor. It probably wouldn’t hurt to make a formalised note in your contract indicating your visits coinciding with production benchmarks.

Visiting times must be at a time suitable for both parties. From a building contractors perspective, your visit is very important to them but you must understand they are extremely busy and working towards very tight deadlines in highly structured environments, usually . If you ‘drop in’, don’t be surprised if your request for a sneek-peek is denied. Remember, if they stopped for every home owner that ‘dropped in’, your house would no longer be built as economically possible and therefore would be more expensive.
