A beautiful custom home from the ground up

On a warm day last week, Adams stood on Sunrise Drive looking up at her new home. It has only wooden studs where the interior walls will go, and a hole where stairs someday will lead to the basement. But the new roof is there, 3 feet taller than the old one.
“And so it begins! A beautiful custom home from the ground up for our clients in North Brunswick, NJ. Check back often and watch as we make our clients dream home a reality!”

Modular Addition to Home

How much is a prefab addition

The average national cost of adding a room or building an addition is $42,348, with most homeowners spending between $20,989 and $65,327. This data is based on actual project costs as reported by HomeAdvisor members.

Many homeowners eventually come to that daunting dilemma: whether to buy their dream house or transform their current home into that dream. Once you make the commitment to build an addition, you've probably decided to go down the latter road. This decision might be something you've long considered, or it may have been thrust upon you by an expanding family. In either case, recognize that this will be a profound investment in time and money, but one that, if done properly, will enhance the value of your most important investment: your home.

Prefab Construction

Do You Know The Difference Between Prefab Homes Construction And Manufactured Homes?

When talking about different kinds of homes, there may be some confusion in regards to the terms used to discuss what kind of house is being built. Prefab, Modular, Panel Built, and Manufactured are sometimes mistakenly used interchangeably, but they all mean different things.​

Prefab housing

Short for Prefabricated housing, “Prefab” is a broad term that encompasses several different types of building. Technically, any home that has sections of the structure built in a factory and then assembled on site can fall under the “prefab” designation. Both Modular and Panel Built fall under the umbrella term of prefab, but just as different types of dogs are all canines but differ from each other, ​​

Modular and Panel Built both qualify as a prefab, but are still different.

Panel Building

As you can see in the video to the right, panel building is accomplished by laying down the floor and then lowering each section of wall in to place one at a time.
This type of construction can be useful in building houses that don’t work neatly as modules and it can be just as structurally sound as other types of prefabricated building. The commercial prefabricated building is often done this way as it allows for wide open spaces and high ceilings. It is also much less expensive to transport a building in panels than in modules if it is large enough.

In the video, you will notice that both the first and second story floors are bare when they are lifted in. This is not always the case. Sometimes manufacturers will already have placed anything that can be bolted down. Toilets, sinks, dishwashers, and anything else that can be properly secured during travel can be pre-attached to the floor and cabinets and light fixtures can be pre-attached to walls. This means less work for the builder and saved time and money for you

Home Addition Builder & Remodel Cost Guides

These major Building projects can be scary and expensive. But doing homework on the front end can help you develop a firm budget, a clear vision and a more fruitful relationship with your contractors. It might also lessen the fear factor. Start with the biggest, broadest questions - What do you hope to accomplish with the project and how much do you have to spend? Then your contractors can help you work your way to the smaller questions about specific materials, etc. That kind of strategic planning should bring clarity to the project, which could be the most valuable asset you bring to the table

Design Space Modular Buildings

​​Size and Complexity of the Addition or Remodel
Some cost factors here are obvious, such as the size of a porch or extra room. But the nature of each project carries levels of complexity that might not be immediately apparent. Early on, you'll want to get a handle on how many general contractors, electricians, plumbers, carpenters or decorators you'll need to complete the project. You'll also want to consider the cost of permits and inspections. Then, budget at least some extra cushion for the unexpected. An example: Perhaps you have an older home, and when your contractors tear up your carpet, they discover structural problems with the flooring or maybe the plumbers find old pipes that need to be replaced. Hope for the best, but plan for at least a bit of the worst. 
There are convincing arguments to be made in favor of prefabricated housing.

Budget for an Addition or Remodel

Once you have your plans in place, remember that you can always make changes that modify your budget as you go. For example, maybe get a mid-grade carpet instead of the highest grade available. Wait for a sale to purchase items like paint, appliances or new windows. Use coupons. Look for rebates. If you have the time, plan your remodel or addition as early as possible and start purchasing items you know you'll need early. This way you are incurring a slight cost over time and not a large cost all at once. You may also be able to afford a higher end product that you would normally not be able to afford if you tried to purchase everything at one time.

Workers for an Addition or Remodel

Depending on how your size-and-complexity plans work out, you may find you need one general contractor, or you may find you need a team of specialized professionals. For example, if you are doing a remodel, you may want to start by consulting an interior decorator. But, as with hiring any home professionals, you want to be cautious about whom you choose. For instance, watch out for decorators who offer free services - these can actually be a manufacturer's representative pushing certain products. Besides narrowing your options, you may pay more in the long run. A flat-fee decorator might look like a great bargain at the outset, but make sure that this person won't insist on acting as your exclusive buyer agent. You don't want decorators who will steer you toward marked-up products that carry larger commissions for them. Always check prices you get from your decorator against retail.
You may also need to hire people that you didn't even think about - such as a structural engineer. The structural engineer inspects the foundation, infrastructure, curtain wall, insulation and building envelope. Through careful inspection and comparison to the approved building plans, the engineer can ensure that the actual building meets the drawings provided and that any necessary corrections are made. While this might be an extra cost that you didn’t initially anticipate, the safety of your structure is paramount, and this simple exercise can save you money and legal hassles down the road.

Addition Exteriors

Because the interior for an addition can be so involved, it's easy to forget or discount the effort needed to make the exterior shine. You will need to consider the siding and roofing materials you would like to use to finish this space. And you might weigh the quality of exterior materials against their visibility. Also in the cost of the addition, be careful to factor in the permits needed and the work needed to prepare the foundation.
The Value of Your Remodel or Addition

Yes, these big projects can be daunting undertakings. But driving the projects moment must be your goal to reap the benefits once it's done. You will have a more beautiful and functional home. And if you execute your project strategically, you'll find that its worth considerably more than when you started. Kind of makes all the sawdust and fear worth it.

I'm really surprised at the other review on this site (looks like one bad perspective, and 2 of their friends).
Our experience with MCS was stellar. I've used them for a large and a small project, and I've since recommended them to a few friends and colleagues - 2 of them went through with projects and had similar, positive experiences. The modular addition was a great approach and Christian was a highly responsive contractor. We added nearly 1000 square feet to our house, and only had to spend a weekend at a friend's house, saving us a TON of money (if our addition would have been built onsite, we'd have had to rent an apartment for a longer stretch). We tried a number of contractors and really were met with very sketchy folks, scarce referrals, and questionable estimates - and that's if they got back to us at all. Christian called us back EVERY time, was straightforward with what costs would be, was spot-on with our estimate, and though time ran a bit longer than promised, there were hiccups in the process on our end and on theirs - and really, with any large project, you have to expect that. Throughout MCS was honest and transparent about it all, which we really appreciated. We love our addition, and MCS still checks in with us after over a year to see how things are going. In looking at the other review, I'm left wondering if they were realistic about all that goes into a big addition. With any large project, you have to have some expectation of complications If you are looking for someone who will be responsive, honest, and not disappear in the middle of a project (I've heard nightmare stories about other contractors) and really diligent in following up, MCS is all that and more. I can't say enough about how happy we are with their work.
