How to Get Started Building Your Custom Home

At Epoch Homes, we’re dedicated to helping you create the fine custom modular home of your dreams. You’ll work with a Recognized Independent Epoch Builder, who has received training in the Epoch Homes process and will be the prime contractor on the job.

After you’ve finalized the design of your home, the builder will contract with Epoch Homes to manufacture it. The builder will also clear the site, obtain permits, provide for well drilling and septic installation, excavate and pour the foundation and oversee the setting of the modules.

The builder will then hire plumbers, electricians and carpenters to finish the house, and do a walk-through with you to address any final details.

Epoch Homes are sold through a network of Independent Epoch Authorized Builders who are trained in the Epoch process. Before we sell to a new Independent Builder, we have confidence they will deliver superior service to you, their customer. We will introduce you to the builder in your building area, or you may choose to use your own. All builders must have the appropriate state licenses, insurances and building experience and attend Epoch’s Builder Training.

Many banks will offer to prequalify you for a construction loan to help you define your budget. Epoch works with many lenders on a regular basis. You may also want to speak with your builder about lenders with which he, or she has had a good experience.

ready set

Ready, set, BUILD!

Epoch Homes are built in a controlled setting with a full-time crew: no weather delays, storm damage or labor diversion. Once “on line,” an Epoch Home can be built in three to five weeks  all while the foundation is constructed and the site is being prepped for delivery. Make an appointment with your builder to see your home while it’s being built!

Delivery and set

Our modules are built extra strong, to withstand the rigors of highway transportation. Once on site, your home can be “set” in a day or two, and handed over to your builder for finishing. The builder will then use his crew of plumbers, electricians and carpenters to finish the house.
