Are you a developer, contractor, designer or just someone who loves prefab? Email us at to get in touch. We would love to see if there's a fit.


All of our designs are completed using 3D software that allows us to import and detail your site, building model, sun and shading among other things. Check out our Design Catalogue that you can download on any page on this site for a more detailed explanation of the steps involved in designing your Built Prefab modular home.
Yes. Built Prefab can build structures to meet any energy and/or construction standards such as R2000, LEED, Energy Star, Passive House, Built Green, Living Building Challenge, or others. Energy-efficient homes are more comfortable, healthier, and less expensive to maintain and live in. Meeting these standards requires consideration at the start of the design stage of your project, which really means let's talk about this as soon as possible if it's on your mind.
We do custom work, but we don't take every single possible custom project. Let's discuss your vision.
You can call or email us at any time for consultation at no charge.

Production, Delivery and Sitework

Actual build times typically vary depending on size and number of modules, but factory time may be as short as one month and installation could be as short as a few days. Please refer to our Buyer's Guide to understand other time factors such as design, permitting and procurement among others.
We work with a production partners in various locations depending on the final destination of the project.
We serve all of North America, other than California. Sorry, we have friends there we can refer you to.
The amount of work to be completed on site is dependent on the model, your site and the overall scope of work detailed in your design. In some cases, it could be a matter of days; however, if you have a complex design installation may take over a month.
The answer is yes we can, but with the caveat that our preference is to install our homes on a crawl space or screw pile system. If you decide to build a basement we recommend that you work with a local contractor to complete the basement finishing once the units have been completely installed.

Cost and Finance

Please check the Build and Price tool for pricing informatin. If you are interested in a custom design please contact us for more information.
We do not offer internal financing; however, we have recommended lending institutions we have worked with in the past who have experience working with prefab and modular projects.
