The General Contractor's Responsibilities for Building a Modular Home

A brief summary of Chapter 7 "The General Contractor's Responsibilities" (51 pages) in The Modular Home , by Andrew Gianino, President of The Home Store

As noted in chapter 5 (20 pages), " Selecting a General Contractor ", your GC needs to complete three types of construction tasks to build your modular home: the site work, the "button-up" work, and the construction of site-built structures.

The site work includes everything done to the land so you can build a home on it. Some of this work is done before the home is delivered, and some of it is done after. The site work tasks include:

  • Clear the land of trees and shrubs

  • Dig a foundation hole
