Building a Modular Home

Bob meets with Pat Fricchione from Simplex Industries to discuss the process of constructing a modular home and the reasons why prefab is an attractive building method in the eyes of many.

Clip Summary

Bob meets with Pat Fricchione from Simplex Industries of Scranton, PA to discuss the modular home industry, specifically in western Massachusetts (though Simplex delivers homes all over the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states).

Today's modular homes are designed to meet the needs of the modern discriminating homebuyer. The materials used in a modular home are essentially the same as those used in a site-built one.

Modular homes can be customized or built from existing floor plans. (Plus, the homeowner gets the advantage of buying in bulk for all the materials in the home). And it's always perfect weather in the factory, so there are no delays due to rain or snow.

A typical home can be built in a week at the factory and delivered to the home site in ready-to-assemble pieces.
