If you’ve been considering a prefab home for your dream home in the Colorado mountains, you may have some unanswered questions. Here at SmartPads, we want to educate and inform the community of the benefits of building a modular home (or prefab home) in Colorado.
Whether you’ve searched for “custom prefab Colorado” or “custom modular Colorado”, we want to ensure you have the accurate information to make an informative decision for your dream home.
What’re the differences between “prefab homes” and “modular homes”?
Many people wonder about the difference between prefab homes and modular homes, and they are essentially the same thing. Prefab homes and modular homes are built off-site in modules (or sections) and delivered to the home site to be assembled onsite.
Can you do a custom prefab in Colorado?
Yes, here at SmartPads, we build custom prefab homes that are stylish, efficient, and cost-efficient. Not only do we offer pre-designed plans, but we also create custom modular homes to be delivered throughout the state of Colorado. Each home is built to the highest standard and meets state and your local building department/county engineering requirements. Our design experts can work with you in creating a custom modular that suits your lot, topography, and incorporates all the design elements you are looking for in a single-family home.
What type of customization is available?
At SmartPads, we can build homes as small as 400 SQ/FT and well over 4000 SQ/FT that are 3 levels in height. We accomplish this by configuring the home to be built in modules that come together to form 1 larger structure and set onto your foundation. We can adjust existing plans, create a custom design, or offer pre-designed plans. Pricing varies based on customization.
What type of finishes are in SmartPads homes?
We allow customers to choose finishes to match their individual style based on the Smartpads pre-determined selection choices and have expert designers to help with the process and offer suggestions. As far as exterior finish materials, we typically use a range of exterior metal finishes, with combinations of tight-knot cedar, hardy plant, and other pre-engineered siding selections. On the interior, we allow customers to choose from an array of highly curated finishes, all luxurious and stylish. Examples include granite or quartz countertops, hardwood floors, expansive window sets, and high-end appliances (for an upgrade). For insulation, we use closed-cell foam insulation on the walls and ceiling to ensure the insulation values are efficient and lower your energy bills.
What type of site can a custom modular home be built on?
Smartpads can build your custom modular home on a variety of lots. We’ve built homes on graded lots with walk-out basements, homes on a flat lot with a crawlspace foundation, and everything in between. As long as the lot can be accessed via semi-truck, we can deliver our homes to the site!
Can you deliver a custom prefab home to any Colorado mountain town?
SmartPads can deliver custom prefab homes to any location in Colorado, as long as a semi-truck can access the site. Often times our product works especially well in luxury ski towns where building costs are higher. Here are the top ski towns for Smartpads: Aspen, Vail, Telluride, Steamboat Springs, Crested Butte, Winter Park, Breckenridge, and any other town in Summit County. However, if your Colorado town is not listed, we can serve most any mountain town in Colorado.
