TURNKEY CUSTOM MODULAR HOMES

COMPETENCE
BRD Builders is working with Westchester Modular Homes Inc., the leading custom modular homes manufacturer in the Northeast, to bring you the best building experience possible. We are an approved Westchester Modular Homes builder and will be working with you on any and all aspects of your new dream home, from the initial consultation to the finished move in ready residence. Since 2000, BRD Builders has become recognized as one of the leading general contractors in the State of Connecticut. As a licensed major contractor with $30M in bonding capacity, BRD Builders has the resources and buying power necessary to competitively deliver on a multitude of projects.

QUALITY
All of our modular homes are custom designed, precisely engineered and build in sections at a climate controlled state-of-the-art production facility operated by Westchester Modular Homes, Inc. in Wingdale, New York. The factory delivers to nine states in the Northeast including Connecticut. Depending upon the level of the selected finishes and options as much as 85% of the work may be completed at the factory. While under construction the modular components undergo stringent quality control inspections at every stage of the process. In the end they are certified to the building code of your site's location before leaving the factory.

STRENGTH
The factory builds your new home to your specifications taking into account your local building codes. They do use about 33% more structural material in the building process to be able to transport the modular sections to your building site and lift them with a crane onto the foundation. Furthermore, the factory employs state of the art building techniques and materials to make your home even stronger and more energy efficient. There are never any ommissions or shortcuts. The building materials and components used are of equal or better quality and strength than that of stick-built homes. This makes our custom modular homes stronger, tighter and much more energy efficient.

TIMING
Our BRD Builders crew does all of the necessary site prep work and then installs and readies the foundation and drainage system. While your home is being build at the factory we bring in all utilities such as power, cable, communications, gas, municipal water and sewer hook ups, or install well and septic systems if needed. The standard modular components are usually completed in the factory within two to three weeks. They are then scheduled for delivery to the construction site once the site prep has been completed. Because we can work parallel to the factory, we are able to shorten the typical construction process by about 50% compared to a stick-built home, saving you time and money.

CHOICE
We will build your dream home as you envison it, using the construction brand names you can trust. The factory offers Andersen windows, Merillat kitchens, Delta faucets, American Standard tubs, sinks & toilets, Whirlpool appliances, TruDefinition shingles, Monogram siding, just to name a few. Of course, BRD Builders can supply also many other brands, options and upgrades to further customize your new home as you like. You can also add garages and sheds, covered porches and patios, inground pools and hot tubs, various exterior materials and details, custom stone work and stucco, specialty flooring and moldings, custom kitchens and baths, and so much more.

SERVICE
We partner with trusted and tried suppliers or providers to offer a complete, high quality turnkey construction service experience. This starts with the conception and design of your home taking into account your needs and wants, facilitating the site work as needed, the setting of your custom modular home onto the foundation, and it's subsequent completion and customization as per your instructions. Every step of the entire design and construction process is managed by us in a precisely choreographed, timely manner, with quality controls, checks and balances along the way to ensure you receive exactly what you contracted us to deliver: Your new dream home.

Our modular homes are by design and the nature of the production process far healthier for your family, your budget, your neighborhood and the planet than stick-built homes.

#1 - BUILDING SITE EVALUATION & PREPARATION

The first step of any residential construction endeavour is to find and purchase a buildable lot in the area you want to live in. We have longstanding relationships with Realtors throughout our CT service areas which are often able to accommodate our clients and find them the specific type of property they are looking for. Prior to purchasing any land you should consult with us to find out what its potential is and what site work we need to do in order to get it ready for the building process.

#2 - CUSTOM HOME DESIGN & BLUE PRINTS

Once you have a lot we will start designing your new home based on your input. You can select any of our standard home styles and customize them to your liking. You can also work with us to create your dream home from scratch or have your architect consult with us. Our designers use Chief Architect software which can show you your new home in 3D. Once you approved the final design our drafts persons will create the blue prints, have them certified and give them to the factory to start work.

#3 - CONSTRUCTION COST ESTIMATES & BUDGETS

We will work with you to create a detailed construction budget based on your final blue prints and the options you selected such as kitchen cabinetry, counter tops, faucets, flooring, tiles, siding, and more. There are of course the utilities, heating, A/C, power, water, etc. that need to be worked out a well plus the driveway, walkways, patio, deck, porch, garage and the landscaping items. We will work it all out with you to the last line item and we can even help with finding suitable financing.

#4 - BUILDING APPLICATIONS & PERMITS

Once the plans have been drawn up, the construction budget has been established and financing has been secured, we will help you to create and submit the building application and pull all permits with the local building department. We will take care of all inspections and also help you to close all permits and obtain a Certificate of Occupancy for your new home at the end. We promise to guide you through the entire process in a professional and timely manner.

#5 - FOUNDATION & DRAINAGE INSTALLATION

With the building permits in hand we will start the site work such as tree removal, grading, excavating the foundation pit, install the agreed on foundation and drainage systems, supply and install backfill where needed. We will have our reliable sub contractors bring in power, cable and telecommunication lines, establish water and sewer connections, or install well and septic systems if there are no municipal systems nearby.

#6 - MANUFACTURE OF HOME & SITE SET

While we are doing all of this the factory has started to build the modular components of your new home based on the agreed upon blue prints. They are also installing everything else you selected from their options menu. Once all sections have been completed they are transported to your building site. The factory set crew will carefully position and secure your new home on the foundation we prepared for it and button it up. This is usually completed in one or two days.

#7 - UTILITIES INSTALLATIONS & HOOKUPS

Your new home has been placed onto and secured to its foundation and is now ready for us to install and connect all the utilities. Heating and cooling systems are installed and hooked up at that time. In many cases we will be able to connect the home to the municipal water and sewer lines and in other instances we will have to connect it to well and septic systems. No matter what the requirements are, we will make sure everything is permitted, done to code, inspected and signed off on.

#8 - GARAGES, PATIOS, DECKS & PORCHES

The same goes for any additions such as a garage, deck, patio and/or covered porch, supplied and installed by us or our reliable and trusted sub contractors, wholly based upon the agreed upon construction plans. All will be done to the highest standards and with premium materials matching or complementing your modular custom home as per your selections. It all will be as originally permitted, to the local codes, inspected and finally signed off by your local building inspectors.

#9 - EXTERIOR & INTERIOR FINISH WORK

While the factory set crew installed and secured your new home and buttoned it up there are still a number of items that need to be completed by us and our time tested sub contractors. Some minor interior sheetrock work, trim applications and painting is to be done where the individual modules have been joined. The agreed upon interior and exterior upgrades, which are not available and provided by the factory, are delivered and installed by our crew.

#10 - DRIVEWAYS, WALKWAYS & LANDSCAPING

At the same time we may install the driveway, walkways and all the landscaping features ordered by you. The yard will be prepped for seeding grass or sod will be installed. Maybe you included an irrigation system and pathway and/or deck lighting? Flower beds, bushes and trees are laid out and planted if the time of the year allows for it. Otherwise this will have to wait for the appropriate planting seasons. Maybe we are also installing an outdoor pool and deck? Or a hot tub? A playground?

#11 - FINAL CHECKUPS & CLOSING OF PERMITS

At the very end we will check every single item we agreed upon to make sure all is just like you wanted it. If anything needs correcting we will make sure it gets done in a timely and professional manner. We will again confirm that all inspections are complete and all permits are closed. We even make sure your Certificate of Occupancy is in your hands together with your house keys. Enjoy your new home.
