Mansfield Custom Homes is the authorized regional builder dealer for Huntington Homes of Vermont. This family owned business has a track record of building quality custom homes built using the efficiency of modular construction. Unlike other modular house “factories,” Huntington strives to provide quality, innovative homes and building solutions. Huntington Homes is very good at what they do, and many home designs are well suited to the efficiency and speed of a modular construction option.
Mansfield Custom Homes was first attracted to Huntington Homes in 1992 when owners Darrow and Margaret Mansfield saw the value in the product firsthand when they built their first new home. Since then, Huntington has been continually innovating and improving, and the homes being built today are among the most solid, efficient, and beautiful we’ve ever seen. We love building these homes and our customers love living in them! All modular plans can be customized to whatever extent you like, adding custom touches and built-ins, porches, decks, sunrooms, mudrooms, garages, and walkout basements are all routinely part of the services offered.
Starting in the early 1700′s, Yankee craftsmen pre-built house frames in their own yards and transported them to the house sites around town. This method of construction took advantage of: familiar building conditions, access to tools, decreased travel time for the craftsmen, and consequently, increased efficiency and quality of home building. Huntington Homes, Inc. continues the tradition and ingenuity of these original craftsmen.
A modular home is an off-site traditionally framed (or stick built) home built in a controlled environment and then transported to your site for final assembly. Each home is built to the local building codes for where the house is being delivered. Huntington Homes use the same materials and construction techniques that any quality on-site builder would use. However Huntington Homes installs them with more accuracy. Rather than cut rafters with a speed square and a circular saw, Huntington Homes uses jigs and a $10,000 radial arm saw. Rather than cut wall studs to length, they are purchased pre-cut. Rather than squaring roofs 2 stories up in the cold rain and snow, roofing systems are squared at ground level with jigs.
These are the kind of innovations and efficiencies that can only be accomplished in a controlled environment. You new home is solid, straight, and the materials have never been exposed to the weather. Anyone who has watched carpenters framing a stick built home in the pouring rain knows how much this improves the quality of your new home.
