Modular Construction Might Save Time and Money

Written By Editor on 5/26/21 | 5/26/21

Howard Kipnes, president of Cedar Knolls, a custom homebuilder located in Ronkonkoma, explains that his company specializes in modular homes on the East End. These, he says, can be built faster – typically in half the time of traditional construction – with superior, consistent quality control inside a factory. They exceed energy efficiency standards and most are priced less than stick-built homes.

“There’s little that we can’t do in modular today,” he says. “We’re doing more custom work. Features such as screened-in patios, second floor decks and balconies and smart home integration are becoming more common. With the coronavirus, more people have relocated out east. We are designing more private spaces, home offices, bedrooms with ensuite baths and children’s play and study areas.”

Great rooms and other large open gathering spaces were better suited to weekenders, Kipnes says, but people staying for extended periods want more individual space.

“We do complete turnkey construction – including architectural plans and permit expediting,” he says. “Buyers a year ago wanted something immediately, but now that they’re more committed to staying out here full time they’re willing to wait for a new custom home. We can build any features available into the house: the latest green features, smart home wiring and automation. Cameras, Wi-Fi-enabled locks and other security devices are very popular.” Every home Kipnes builds is a custom job – clients don’t have to pick a particular model.

Many favor two-story homes. Modern farmhouse designs are particularly popular now. His homes typically range from 1,000 to more than 4,000 square feet. More land is currently available on the North Fork and in the town of East Hampton, he adds.
