Is modular construction an option to build your new home? Main Idaho Real Estate Insights
The architect designed their dream home and the price was $2M. "The cost was way too much to build." Hanna said. "We couldn't afford it." So the couple turned to Hanna's father, Charles Hanna, a civil engineer who recommended a cheaper construction method: modular housing.

Total projected cost: $1,017,000. Time from start to finish: nine months.

Compare that with the 12 months or more it takes to build a comparable custom home and it’s easy to see why modular might be the wave of the future as the U.S. home-building industry shakes off the recession.
