After choosing your perfect modular home design and piece of land, you must decide how you want your home positioned on the site. Positioning will differ for each location, which can often make this process challenging because it is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Here are a few helpful tips to assist you with your decision.
- Easy Access: When choosing a site, try to select a spot that has easy access to the road. This is not only cost-effective when installing a driveway, but will also make it easier for your home to be delivered and installed!
- Focal Point: If your new piece of land offers any views, definitely position your home where you will be able to enjoy them every day. Having a good view can offer additional value to your home and make the overall atmosphere even more enjoyable. Including a deck, patio, or large windows with your design can also help make the most of your view.
- Positioning of Your Home: If possible, try and face your main living areas (living room, kitchen) toward the north. This will allow you to gain the maximum amount of natural sunlight in the rooms that are most often used. This is also beneficial during cold winter days by letting the sun warm up these rooms, which can save money on your heating bill as well!
Although all of these tips are not able to be implemented with each individual house, hopefully you will be able to utilize at least one. Once your modular home has been placed on the foundation, it is a permanent structure. Keep these tips in mind when picking your ideal location.
