Every home we provide has an approximate build time, this refers to how long it will take until the production of your home is complete. The day your home is finished is called the offline date. That is the date your home comes off the production line and is ready to ship to you. Manufactured homes are built in a factory and go down an assembly line. Each section and person on the assembly line handles a different part of the job. One section will handle framing the walls, another will handle electric, another will handle plumbing. In the photo below, the home has been framed and electric and plumbing are done. It's just waiting for windows, siding, and a roof before it's ready to come offline!
When Home Nation places an order with a manufacturer, that order is added to the manufacturer's backlog of homes and will be built after all the orders placed before it are built. Building a manufactured home only takes a matter of days or weeks, however, manufacturers have dozens to hundreds of existing orders at any given time. They must build all those existing orders before they can build your specific home. For some manufacturers, it may only take a few weeks to get to your home order, for other manufacturers, it may take a few months to work through the backlog.
Home Nation will place your order once you're ready to move forward, which means you'll get a home specifically built for you! It may take time to build your home, but this will allow you time to prepare your property. From pulling permits to pouring a foundation, it's important to make sure your property is ready for your home once it's offline and ready to ship! While it may take time to build your home and prepare your property, when your home finally arrives, it will all be worth the wait!
