If you want to save costs during home construction in the Yukon, you might want to consider a modular home.
Modular homes are built in a factory before the modules are shipped to the site and placed on a foundation. The carefully controlled environment in the factory avoids exposure of the materials to the weather during construction and reduces waste generation, making these homes better value for money and quicker to build.
The Yukon has some good modular builders, and we’ve listed the best ones for you in this article.
Western Modular Homes
Western Modular Homes builds multi-section luxury houses as two-story and one-piece units. All homes are custom-made at its Nisku Facility as per client specifications.
Customers can easily choose from a wide range of floor plans through its sales center and website. However, the homes are not outfitted with a frame or vinyl wallboard.
If you prefer a DIY approach, the team at Western Modular Homes can help resize or customize one of the existing drafts or create a plan from scratch per your needs.
The firm also specializes in building homes on-site at your chosen location and will transport everything itself. If you have construction experience, you can ask it to drop off the materials for you to assemble.
Although Western Modular Homes is based in Alberta, it will, at its discretion, provide homes in other provinces, including the Yukon.
Lindal Cedar Homes
Lindal Cedar Homes provide prefab houses to the Yukon territories along with Calgary, Edmonton, Northwest Territory, and Columbia Valley. Since 2000, the founders have guided clients in building their dream houses on a budget and without compromising the environment.
