Alaska Modular Home Builders
Modular Homes - Alaska
When building a modular home in Alaska you must take into consideration the area of
the site you wish to build on. In general, modular homes in Alaska are subject to the
same standards as the International Building Code, which is the same as any site built
Several of the cities in Alaska also have building codes for their particular location as
well, so plans for a new modular home must be submitted locally to the city.
For the modular home builder pages of this website I try to include only local modular
home builders, rather than manufacturers, however some people when deciding on a
modular home like to contact the factory to find the house they want, then decide on
the builder later, sometimes using the builder recommended by the manufacturer.
If you are gathering information this way for a modular home project in Alaska it is very
important to consider your exact location when choosing a modular home company.
Alaska is a very large state and the cost of transporting a modular home from the
factory to your building location can sometimes be a significant amount. In general, the
closer to your future home site, the better.
This is particularly true when you are building a home that requires multiple trucks to
transport the modules. However, if you find a company that produces modular homes
that you really like and they are reasonably close, you should still price it out and see
what the costs would be.
Sometimes there is a big difference in labor costs from one city or state to the next, so
if you live in an area in Alaska that is expensive, the transportation costs may be offset
by the cost of labor and you may be able to get your dream modular home for the same
price as one from a manufacturer that is closer.
The main thing you want to make sure of is that you are working with a builder that has
experience building modular homes in Alaska and is familiar with the regulations in
