Ready to build? Use this checklist to find out if you’re ready to build your SmartPads prefab home

Building a SmartPads luxury prefab home is an exciting journey that offers unmatched personalization and efficiency. But how do you know if you’re truly ready to embark on this adventure with SmartPads? Here’s a helpful checklist to guide you:

  • Location, Location, Location: Have you secured land where you envision your home nestled in the picturesque landscape of the Mountain West?
  • Design Vision: Have you spent time envisioning your ideal home design? From floor plans to finishes, getting a clear picture of what you want will make the design process smoother. Take a look at some of our existing mountain modern home designs to choose which one is best for you or to get ideas if you are exploring our design-build option.
  • Finances in Order: Have you assessed your budget and finances? Do you know how much you are pre-qualified for if you plan to finance your project? Except for upgrades, the cost of a SmartPads prefab home is fixed when you sign a contract, but there are additional costs such as hiring a GC to oversee site preparation, foundation work, permitting fees, shipping, setting, and stitching of the home once on-site.
  • Wish List & Must-Haves: Have you made a list of features and amenities you can’t live without? Our team will work closely with you to incorporate your must-haves into the design.
  • Project Timeline: Do you have a rough idea of your desired project timeline? Our custom prefab home process reduces build times to under 6 months.
  • Permit & Zoning Research: Have you looked into local building codes, permits, and zoning regulations?
  • HOA: Is there an HOA in the neighborhood where you are looking to build? If so, are there design guidelines that could preclude modular construction? If so, do you have a clear understanding of those guidelines?
  • Technical Checklist:
  1. Do you have a soils test?
  2. Do you have a land survey?
  3. Do you know what utilities are available? Ex: septic or sewer, well or city water, electricity, natural or propane gas.
  • Flexibility & Collaboration: Are you open to collaboration and being flexible with the design process? Our design-build option thrives on teamwork and creativity.
  • Quality & Sustainability: Are you committed to investing in a high-quality, sustainable home? SmartPads prefab construction ensures excellence and eco-friendly living.
  • Excitement & Enthusiasm: Most importantly, do you feel genuinely excited and enthusiastic about embarking on this journey with SmartPads? Your passion fuels our dedication to creating your dream home.
