Below are some Frequently Asked Questions about modular homes and modular home building; If you have a question you do not see, please contact us.
What kind of basement will my modular home have?
We provide concrete block, poured in place concrete, or pre-cast.
Do I need to own my lot "free and clear" before I have my modular home built?
No, in many cases we can incorporate the lot cost into the total mortgage so any loan on the lot can be paid off.
Can you also add on a garage, porch, or deck to my modular home?
Yes, and in most cases, our prices are the most affordable.
Why should I buy a modular home rather than a site-built home?
We build either, so it's your decision. But if your plan can be constructed as a modular home, in our market, you may save $8-$10 per square foot, and that's significant. Some plans, while they can be built using modular technology, may be too intricate to build economically. So in these cases maybe a site-built home is the best bet. And in some cases it may be impossible to deliver and set a modular home on a foundation if it is necessary to travel down a narrow and winding lake road, etc. We're always available to evaluate your site to help you decide.
What kind of financing is available for modular homes?
A modular home is a conventional wood frame home built to the same architectural standards and codes as any site built home. Therefore a modular home can be financed by all Conventional, FHA, VA, and even SONYMA loans.
Do I need to have my own lot?
No! We maintain a list of lots and land for sale, and own lots that customers can select for their new modular home.
What kind of homes do you build?
We construct site built homes and modular single-family homes, as well as duplexes, professional offices, and specialty buildings such as barns and camps.
How much of the project does Fox Hill Homes do?
Most of the time we provide a turn-key job, or everything from soup to nuts! But some customers are interested in being their own General Contractor, so we can supply the home to their specifications and set-it on their foundation. They are responsible for site development, foundation, and heating, electrical and plumbing.
What kind of heating system do you provide?
Although the most common lately is a forced hot air and central air conditioning combination, we also install hot water baseboard, and in floor radiant heat. Electric baseboard can be used, but it is more common in cottages, etc. In any case, the emphasis is on efficiency, so the heating/cooling units used are the highest efficiency installations available.
How do I pay for the lot, and still have enough money for the down payment and closing costs?
This is the best game in town. Pick out a lot. Fox Hill Homes will provide a site evaluation. If it's suitable, WE will purchase the lot, provide "in-house" construction loan financing, build your new modular home to your plan and specifications and sell the completed home to you. That way, building a new modular home is as easy as purchasing an existing home.
