The world of prefab and modular homes.

Homeowner shares modular lessons

Link to Homeowner shares modular lessons

I came across while perusing some news the other day:

This website is for those interested in purchasing a modular home or those considering one and wishing to learn more about them.  I will share my experiences and lessons learned while acting as the general contractor on my modular home in the St. Louis, Missouri area.

When researching modular homes, I found a lot of information supplied by builders or sales agents of modular homes.  I am trying to add another perspective to that - that of someone purchasing a modular home as well as being heavily involved in the planning and scheduling of the project.

Sections of the site include:
background information
a list of modular builders by state
lessons learned
pictures of all stages of the process

The site is barebones, but informative.

I have been looking for a site where pre-fab home owners can share their experiences and look for solutions to the problems that these homes may present AFTER building. For example: Post and Beam trapezoidal windows are nearly impossible to shade. It would be nice to see if anyone else has found an answer to this. This would help others in the design process as well. In addition- prospective buyers might want to know when a company replies by saying "we are not in the shading business" when a request to solve that issue comes their way. Are there others who agree? Any advice?
