We have many people contact us at various stages of the building process. As you consider the benefits of building a new green modular home, consider setting up a no-obligation meeting with us to go over pricing and our build process. You can get started by reviewing all the information we provide on this website, check out some of the floor plans as a guide and also visit our modular factory partners websites and floor plans.
A good way to learn more about the modular construction process is to tour the factory in person to see a home being built. Ask us about getting a tour from one of our factory partners!
Our pricing is competitive, based on your choice of house style/design/finishes.
This has the details of what is included and what may be upgrades for your new home.
NYS Building code warranties all new construction from 1 year from when the Certificate of Occupancy is obtained from the Municipality.
Carina also offers warranties on all our new home builds.
Foundations have a 10-year warranty as per NYS law: http://www.lawserver.com/law/state/new-york/ny-laws/ny_general_business_law_777-a
Every home we build is customized to your individual tastes/style. You tell us what flooring you want for each room. Pricing will depend on the type of flooring you select.
The standard is carpet and vinyl which is included in the turnkey pricing.
Local lenders have construction loans which may allow the purchase of the land as the first ‘draw’ on the loan. This makes the process easier if you need to leverage the purchase of land with the house.
Contact us for our list of local lenders that we have worked with and will provide excellent loan products for construction of new homes.
All our prices include a full unfinished basement. We typically use Superior Walls (www. superiorwalls.com) which is a type of insulated, pre-cast concrete foundation. We can also work with block, ICP, cast in place, or any other foundation you are considering. Again, this is a customized decision that we would work together to determine what foundation is best for your use/needs.
We have done many geothermal installations since 2003. With the tax-credits available federally, the cost of geothermal becomes much more reasonable and provides a quicker return on your investment. More and more clients are also adding solar, sometimes with the construction but more likely after they move in. We can prepare the house for future installation of solar (and geothermal) for those planning on investing in these technologies in the future.
See our Testimonials Page to read more about how our clients have benefitted in the cost-savings of going geothermal.
No! Your price only changes if you change the amount of material provided. We encourage you to design your home with us.
Yes, we always have some new homes under construction that we can tour you through with advance appointments. We also have some clients who are willing to have you tour through as well. Reach out for an updated “driving tour” map of Carina homes we’ve built since 2003.
