I am getting close to buying a modular home from Select Homes in Mocksville N.C. I am looking at a home built by R-anell. Can anyone recommend Select Homes and R-anell? Also would love to hear advice and what experiences others have had with the purchase of a modular home.

We have a modular in the high country - 2900 sq ft; 1.5 story. Second floor was built on site. The modular is essentially a shell. Hardwood floors and ceramic tile all installed on site. Hardy plank all around - installed on-site. 9 ft ceilings; granite counters, upgraded cabinets and lighting. Modular is very energy efficient; solid construction. There are some people who steer away from modular homes -- maybe they think it's a 'trailer/mobile home' -- far from it/no comparison. If you purchase a quality modular, the construction and materials are no different (or better) than on-site stick built. And remember, the home is built indoors so the wood is not exposed to the elements and it has to withstand 60 MPH winds in transport. It took them one day to set both halves on the foundation. Our home came from Salisbury -- I don't remember the company name. My $0.02 worth of advice: exterior doors have a chance to lose their 'square' in transport. Might want to consider having them installed on-site after the house is set. The marriage wall is usually a double 2x4. Some people don't like the look of it but if you plan right and possibly use interior french doors between rooms with the 'think' wall, it becomes practically unnoticeable. Best of luck ...
