How long does it take to build a modular house?

Modular homes are solutions that are known all over the world, especially in Canada or Scandinavian countries. Also in Poland, they are quickly gaining popularity, which is mainly due to their advantages. One of the most important is certainly the fast turnaround time. How long does it take to build a modular house? What determines the implementation time of this type of project? These and other questions are answered in this article.

Fast turnaround time is one of the main advantages of a modular house

As mentioned in the introduction, one of the most important advantages of modular technology is the fast turnaround time. This is due to the fact that modular summer houses are built even within a few weeks, and living in all-year-round buildings is possible already 2-3 months after the project is selected. In their case, however, it is also necessary to make an appropriate foundation, and information on this can be found at the link: As you can see, the construction of modular houses is much faster than in the case of traditional, brick buildings. Many people, however, still do not fully believe it, and the term "modular house - realization time" is one of the most searched on the Internet in the context of modular homes.

What will the delivery time of a modular house depend on?

Czas realizacji projektu domu modułowego wynosi zazwyczaj około 2 miesięcy, a w przypadku projektu znajdującego się pod linkiem: budowa trwa 6 tygodni. Od czego zatem uzależniony jest czas budowy domu modułowego? Przede wszystkim od uwarunkowań konkretnego projektu, takich jak powierzchnia domu, czy zastosowane rozwiązania. Jak wspomniano w poprzednim akapicie istotny jest również fakt, czy ma to być domek letniskowy, czy dom całoroczny. W tym drugim przypadku konieczne jest również wykonanie odpowiedniego fundamentu, co leży zazwyczaj po stronie inwestora. Czas realizacji uzależniony jest również od zastosowanej technologii budowy domu modułowego, który może powstać z keramzytobetonu lub opierać się na drewnianej bądź metalowej konstrukcji szkieletowej z odpowiednim wypełnieniem.

What else does the construction time of a modular house depend on? Returning to the floor space area, it should be noted that in the case of modular houses with a built-up area of up to 70 m2, it is not necessary to obtain a building permit. Modular houses without permits mean fewer formalities, which directly translates into the possibility of faster living "on your own". The speed of project implementation certainly depends also on whether the investor chose a typical project available in the catalogue of a given company or decided to introduce individual changes to it. The latter solution is available more and more often, but it should be borne in mind that it not only extends the construction time but also increases its costs.

Where is the actual construction of modular houses taking place?

Modular technology stands out from traditional construction technologies because the actual construction takes place not at the construction site, but in a specialized factory. Depending on the manufacturer, the factory can produce up to 90% of ready-made elements, which are then transported to the construction site and assembled together. This solution means that modular houses are built regardless of the season and the weather conditions. It also makes it possible to dispense with the use of concrete and traditional masonry mortars.

One of the advantages of modular houses is precision and high quality of workmanship. These facts also arise because individual elements of modular homes are made in factories. Thanks to this, they can be manufactured with great care, as well as with the use of modern machinery, which translates into accuracy and the highest quality. The elements produced in factories fit together perfectly and are an accurate representation of the design assumptions.

How long can it take to assemble the building on site?

As mentioned in the previous paragraph, modular houses are made in specialized factories, and at the construction site, only the assembly of individual elements that are joined together is carried out. So how long can the work on the construction site last? Assembling a building on site usually takes several days, and such a short implementation time is mainly due to the fact that the individual elements fit together perfectly. It is also worth emphasizing that professional teams that deal with the assembly of modular houses perfectly know the technology used and design assumptions. Heavy equipment is also in operation at the construction site, which facilitates the transport and positioning of heavy building elements. When discussing the issue of assembling a modular house on the construction site, it should also be emphasized that the entire process is not only fast but also clean. This is mainly due to the fact that only ready-made elements are delivered to the construction site, which is not modified or matched in any way. Therefore, the investor does not have to worry about keeping the construction site tidy, or with the remnants of materials that are characteristic of traditional construction technologies.

Summing up, it should be said that modular technology is by far the fastest building technology known so far, and how long a modular house is built depends on a few basic issues. Regardless of them, a modular building may be ready for occupancy even after less than 2-3 months from the selection of a specific project.
