Find an Approved Building Lot
The initial step of building your dream home is acquiring a piece of buildable property. Westchester works with local independent builders who may be able to assist you with land search. An important note, prior to purchasing any parcel of land you will want a Westchester Modular Independent Builder to evaluate it’s potential.
Choose a Westchester Independent Builder
Westchester works with local independent builders who have been approved and trained to build our modular homes in a specified region. Your Westchester Modular Homes Builder will work through preliminary budgets with you and discuss the modular home construction process. Contact us for a list of builders covering your area.
Securing permits and construction financing for a modular home is the same as for a conventional on-site built home. Westchester customers can choose a local financing source or we can recommend a bank that is familiar with the Westchester Modular Homes Process.
Design Your Home
You can start with a standard Westchester Modular Home design and modify it to fit your needs or bring a design you’re already in love with and our builder will work with you on a completely custom design utilizing our special CAD program.
Finalize Your Order
Once you have completed the conceptual design, the builder will order the house from the factory. The Westchester Modular Homes Engineering Department will complete the plans necessary for the building permits while you are finalizing your financing and making your choices for countertops, bathroom fixtures, cabinet styles and exterior colors on Westchester Modular Homes Virtual Design Center.
Once your builder has completed the building permit process, the foundation is started and at the same time your home is put into production. In seven short days your home is completed in the factory and ready for transportation to the site.
Home Delivery & Setting
The modules that make up your new home are carefully delivered to your site in preparation of the actual set of the home. Westchester’s own factory set crew carefully lifts each module into place and secures it to the foundation. At the end of the day your home is set, secured and weather tight on the foundation ready for completion by the builder.
On Site Finishes
Now that your home is set, the builder can get started on the completion process. Electrical, plumbing and heating connections are finished up. Exterior siding is finalized along with porches, decks, patios, walkways and garages. Some minor interior carpentry and drywall button up is done prior to the installation of floor coverings and kitchen appliances. Outside, the builder is completing sewer and water connections along with final grade and seeding the lawn.
Inspect & Enjoy
Enjoy and feel comfortable that your custom built Westchester Modular Home is covered by a 10-year structural warranty with the 2-10 Homebuyers Warranty Program®.
