Step by Step

Our Process

This is an informational guide to provide you with an overview of the modular home construction process.

Process

 Find an Approved Building Lot

The initial step of building your dream home is acquiring a piece of buildable property.  Westchester Modular Homes works with local independent builders who may be able to assist you with land search. An important note, prior to purchasing any parcel of land you will want a Westchester Modular Homes Independent Builder to evaluate it’s potential.

#1

Choose a Westchester Independent Builder

Westchester Modular Homes works with local independent builders who have been approved and trained to build our modular homes in a specified region. Your Westchester Modular Homes Independent Builder will work through preliminary budgets with you and discuss the modular home construction process in detail. Contact us for a list of builders covering your area.

#2

Secure Financing

Securing permits and construction financing for a Westchester Modular Home is the same as for a conventional on-site built home. Your chosen builder will be securing the required permits for your project. Westchester Modular Homes customers can select almost any local financing source or we can recommend a bank that is familiar with the Westchester Modular Homes Building Process.

#3

Design Your Home

You can start with a standard Westchester Modular Home design and modify it to fit your needs and wants with the help of our in-house designers.  You can also bring a layout you’re already in love with, you can involve an architect of your choice, or work with the independent builder you select to create a completely custom design utilizing our special in house CAD program Chief Architect.

#4

Finalize Your Order

Once you have completed the conceptual design, the builder will order the house from the factory. The Westchester Modular Homes Engineering Department will complete the plans necessary for the building permits while you are finalizing your financing and making your choices for countertops, bathroom fixtures, cabinet styles and exterior colors via the Westchester Modular Homes Virtual Design Center. With the help of your builder you can also customize your future home even further.

#5

Building Starts

Once your builder has completed the building permit process, the site work and the foundation is started and at the same time your home is put into production at the factory. In seven short days your home is completed as per the approved plans and ready for transportation to the building site. The factory set crew will be doing the setting of the home on the foundation prepared by your builder.

#6

Home Delivery & Setting

The modules that make up your new home are carefully delivered to your site in preparation of the actual set of the home. Westchester’s own factory set crew then carefully lifts all modules into place, joins them together and secure them to the foundation. At the end of the day your home is set, secured and weather tight on the foundation ready for completion by your builder.

#7

On Site Finishes

Now that your home is set, the builder can get started on the completion process. Electrical, plumbing and heating connections are finished up. Exterior siding is finalized along with porches, decks, patios, walkways and garages. Some minor interior carpentry and drywall button up is done prior to the installation of floor coverings and kitchen appliances. Outside, the builder is completing sewer and water connections along with final grade and seeding the lawn.

#8

Inspect & Enjoy

Enjoy and feel comfortable that your custom built Westchester Modular Home is covered by a 10-year structural warranty with our 2-10 Homebuyers Warranty Program®. Your builder will go over the completed home with you making sure all details are just as you ordered them, close all open permits, and obtain the Certificate of Occupancy for you.
