In September, Charles Bevier of Building Systems blog mentioned a 2-page spread in the Fall/Winter 2008 issue of Better Homes & Gardens' New Home Magazine (BH&G).
BH&G shines the spotlight on the Gull Island.... The design is one of many Poole has created for ... the Southeast market, homes that are turnkeyed by a network of authorized builders.
The blog post summarizes comments by Bill Murray, general manager of HandCrafted, on the advantages of modular construction:
less time (120 days full turnkey versus 12 to 18 months for site building the old fashioned way)
modular units are constructed in the controlled environment and sealed from weather before shipping to the jobsite
The issue will be in newsstands through November.
