How a Two Story Home Plan Can Help You Get the Most for Your $

Tuesday, November 17, 2009
If you are looking to get the most house for your money, a two story home plan probably makes the most sense for you. As long as you and your family members are willing and able to climb the stairs several times a day, a two story home plan can provide you with significant cost and functionality benefits over a one story design.

Cost Savings: With a two story design, you can essentially double your square footage without doubling your building cost. How? You don't end up paying for roofing on the first floor square footage or foundation on the second floor footage. Also, when you stack the square footage over two floors, you decrease your home's footprint, enabling you to build your home on a smaller lot which may save you on land purchasing costs.

Energy Savings: Once your home is built, you will save money in heating costs by having a second floor. Why? As we all know, heat rises, and the second floor will absorb some of the heat from the living space downstairs. Additionally, all Ryzen Homes are built with an
energy efficient home envelope, which ensures that the heating and cooling you are paying for stay inside no matter what the weather outside.

A two story home plan significantly decreases your cost per square foot to build. In fact, Ryzen Homes is running a special on the Tamworth Colonial, starting at $135,600 through April 2010. That is less than $85 per square foot! Click

Top Five Reasons to Build Modular

Saturday, February 21, 2009
1. Planning Stages in the Shortest Amount of Time.
That means close collaboration with Ryzen Homes on the drawing board and on site. It's in your best interest to see that you get the home you want, where you want it, when you want it, and at a price that meets your budget.

2. Completed Homes in Less Time Than Stick-Built Construction.
Because the site work and home construction can be completed simultaneously, it translates into shorter time frames, fewer financing charges, and happier homeowners.

3. Your Plans or Ours. 
Our construction methods allow you a broad range of design flexibility. Our full time Engineering Department utilizes Computer Aided Design (CAD) to design each home we build and for the home of your dreams.

4. More Sturdy Than Stick-Built Construction.
Because the building components are shipped as modules, their construction must be more durable than that necessary for on site buildings. Additionally, this makes a Ryzen Home ideal for the demanding conditions of a harsh New England climate.

5. Modular Construction Reduces the Possibilities of Cost Overruns.
You and Ryzen Homes agree on the cost of your home before it is constructed.
"Surprise costs" are virtually eliminated in the modular home building process. This is real expectation management!
