There’s a nice piece of family land about fifteen miles outside of town. Rolling hills. Private drive. Great place to build that beautiful new home. One choice would be to build it conventionally, the old-fashioned way. To do that, you might hire Freddy the Framer and his crew. Every day – except the rainy ones - they show up at the site in their trucks, rolling in and out of the muddy construction field. They pull their framing lumber from the pile (over there, sitting in the mud) and frame up the structure of the house. Freddy the Framer’s a good sub contractor and a good businessperson. He pays his crew their wage, and gets a decent profit. He includes the cost of running his truck back and forth from town every day, back and forth, day after day until his job is done. Burning gasoline. Wearing down his tires. Freddy and his crew trudge through the mud. They try to keep the floor clean, sometimes they have to scrape the bottom of their boots off on a few wall studs, but no worries, Donny the Drywall guy will cover it up. They use the porta-johns on the front lawn, take smoke breaks, lunch breaks, mid-day breaks…and Freddy’s crew is pretty good. Most of the time they clean up their Coke cans & chip bags (though they can’t seem to keep their cigarette butts off the ground…)
Or we can help Freddy the Framer keep his tires from the wear and tear by building Modular. Dry lumber, kept under cover, assembled on precision jig tables in a matter of hours…forming a tight, dry, square module that will be delivered to the jobsite and set on the foundation in just a few hours.
