Snow and Cold Can't Stop a Modular Home Set

One of the biggest benefits that many modular home factories don't mention is that modular homes can be set in just about any weather conditions except rain and high winds. Just wait a day and they can be set. All this works well if the factories can actually get the modules delivered to the jobsites.

With all the snow that has hit the East Coast the past month, many modular home factories have completed homes setting in their yards waiting for the roads to be opened. With the large number of new modular homes heading to Long Island and the New Jersey coast to replace homes destroyed by hurricane Sandy, many factories have dozen of modules covered in snow with no delivery dates available. Talk about good news and bad news.

However, when a modular home does make it to a job site, like this one in Maryland that got 12" of snow last week, setting the home becomes just another day at the office for Express Modular and their set crew, Modular Home Erectors.  The home was built by Icon Legacy Custom Modular Homes in their Selinsgrove, PA factory.

Here are some pictures of the two day set. In the last picture you will notice a site built home next door that was started in December and is still open to the elements and it looks like nobody has worked on this house for days. Wonder where all the snow that blew into the house will melt to? The wood subfloors maybe!

Notice that this house is getting a hip roof

Site Built House Next Door Standing Empty. Notice that no contractor has been there in two days and the front door and some windows have been left wide open to the snow.
