Customization of design

News

Unibilt Custom Homes is more than just our name. 100% of all homes built by Unibilt feature differing levels of design customization. Invariably the one question that is asked during our monthly factory tours is, “Can I change the floor plan from the one I see in your catalog?” The answer is always a resounding “Yes you can!”

At Unibilt Custom homes all materials used in the construction of your new home are stored indoors, under roof and are never exposed to rain, ice, sleet or snow. Lumber, drywall, insulation, roof decking, floor decking and wall sheathing are always kept dry, either in our 85,000 square foot plant or in our 15,000 square foot warehouse. Our critical materials are delivered dry and kept that way.

What is the difference between mobile homes and modular homes?

News

That question is asked hundreds of times across the United States by bankers, realtors, zoning officials and the general home buying public. There is a clear difference in the two. The term “mobile home” has been replaced in technical and legal jargon by the term “manufactured housing” in recent years. To further confuse the issue modular homes often are referred to as off site built, pre-fabricated, industrialized, systems built, as well as other terminology that has been used in various situations. In general manufactured homes (formerly mobile homes) are built to comply with a code developed in 1976 referred to as the HUD Code. This code requires that any home built to comply must be attached to a permanent chassis---a steel frame. In general due to this steel chassis the structural elements required differ from those required for modular or conventional construction. (For example 2x6 floor joists can be used versus 2x10 floor joists in modular or conventional home construction.)

Unibilt delivers and sets every home we build.

News

Unlike many modular manufacturers, Unibilt employees deliver homes to customer sites with our company owned transporters and trucks. This eliminates a middle man or outside sub-contracted freight company as well as a sub-contracted set crew. Our professional team is headed by two individuals with over 60 years of combined delivery and set experience----all while employed by Unibilt. Unibilt is unique in that we not only set homes with the use of a crane (as others do) but also when feasible we can also place your new home on its permanent foundation by using “roll-on” equipment. This translates in to cost savings for our builders and customers. Savings in the thousands of dollars can be realized when the “roll on” method can be utilized. While this method of setting homes is not always feasible (two story homes must be set with a crane) we take every opportunity to save homeowners money when possible.

TALL WALL Standard on Every Unibilt Home

News

Unibilt installs TALLWALL by Norbord on all exterior walls to save our homeowners on their energy bills, year after year. During one of our recent monthly factory tours, we were asked a great question, “Why is the exterior sheathing installed vertically instead of the way most other builders do it?” While traditional builders install plywood or osb exterior sheathing in a horizontal fashion (4x8 sheets), Unibilt applies all exterior sheathing in 4x9 or 4x10 sheets, which are fastened vertically-----all seams are on a stud, no gaps for air infiltration. Further the sheathing now ties in the top plate with the floor joist rim plates. Stronger, tighter, and just plain better construction!
