For new construction in Maine, Modular homes and panelized construction is superior to site-built homes with several key differences. We will build your home under the protection from the elements and the weather never plays a roll in damaging or mildewing your structure. We build to a better tolerance than most site built homes because we are supervised by a third-party and we have systems in place to maintain the highest quality of product. Our homes also must be built to survive the travel from our factory and the crane ride on to your foundation. When it comes to building new construction, modular and panelized homes are the answer you're looking for.
