Our Modular Home Building Process

Building a custom home has its perks. On top of giving you the freedom and enjoyment of making your dream home a reality, when you partner with the right homebuilders, you can count on:

  • High quality, reliable construction
  • Affordability
  • Transparency, efficiency, and peace of mind

Part of that transparency, efficiency, and peace of mind comes from knowing exactly what to expect when you partner with a particular custom homebuilder. 

Whether you’re a first time home builder or you’ve been through this before, the building process can feel daunting and endless. Here’s the good news: everything from working with real estate agents, finding land, and choosing your floor plan can be simple and enjoyable.

Here’s what to plan from the homebuilding process when you partner with Carolina Custom Homes:


Buying your land.

Do you already own land, maybe inherited from a family member or passed down through the generations? Or maybe you got a good deal on it several years ago and it’s finally time to do something with it. Or, like plenty of folks who decide to build a home, maybe you need help finding and buying land on which to build your new home? If this is the case, you can rest easy knowing that when you partner with Carolina Custom Homes, we’ll help you find the land and buy it for you outright. This way, we can include it in the final cost of building your home without putting you through the hassle of managing multiple loans and payments. 

Getting land is often one of the most stressful parts of building a home, and far as we know, we’re the only home builders who offer to buy and bundle the land with your building cost, which we think is a pretty obvious solution. Why wouldn’t we want to make the building process easier for our customers and ourselves? 

Really, it’s as simple as it sounds. 


Finding a floor plan.

Shop our floor plans, take a virtual tour, schedule an on-site tour, and even customize your favorite floor plan. Whether you choose from one in our showroom or design your own from scratch, we just want you to love your new layout. 

Need help choosing the right floor plan? We’re here to guide you through the process and help you find the right fit for you and your family!


Get an honest final number.

Once you’ve decided on all of your customizations, like styles, appliances, and upgrades, you’ll send your final choices to your builder, and we’ll be able to offer you an all-in price point. If you come in under or over your ideal budget, our team will be able to suggest the best adjustments to your design to meet your lifestyle, preferences, and your budget without any surprises.

Hang tight while we build your new home.

We’ll start out by building the modules of your home in our climate-controlled factory setting here at our facility in Burlington, NC. While our team is building your home offsite, we’ll also start clearing and grading the lot for your home if this wasn’t already completed beforehand.


Building your home on your land.

Once we’ve made sure the modules of your home are up to par and complete, we’ll finish the building process on-site. Since modules are built off-site, you can trust that progress won’t be interrupted by common weather and construction delays. Once it’s all put together, we’ll connect your utilities, add additional siding, and install all of your chosen appliances and fixtures.

Final Step: Moving In!

This is where the magic happens. It’s time to turn your new house into your dream home. You’ve got the perfect floor plan, top notch appliances, and your favorite paints and finishes, so now it’s time to fill it with your belongings and flex your interior design skills. 

Sounds easy enough, right? To chat more about the process, tour our on-site floor plans, and address any lingering questions or concerns, choose a time to meet with Carolina Custom Homes. Don’t worry, there’s no pressure to commit. Building a home is a big step, and we want you to make the best choice for you and your family.

  • Would you prefer a one-story home or multi-story home?
  • Do you already have land and if so what’s it like and where is it located

The rest is really just showing them the model homes and finding out what is important to them in their new home.

Finally: Walk through some of our most popular floor plans. We swap these out occasionally, so keep an eye out for anything new you’d like to see. Keep in mind while your wandering that any of our floor plans can be customized to better fit your lifestyle.
