Homes by Brill is proud to be an authorized Stratford Homes partner. This allows us to bring Stratford’s economical housing concept to more families in Des Moines and the surrounding areas while ensuring the highest quality construction and management through each home build process.
A modular home is one that is constructed in a warehouse rather than on site at a homeowner’s property. Depending on its size and complexity, the home is usually constructed in multiple pieces, like building blocks. These pieces are then transported to your property, where they are professionally installed and assembled by Des Moines home builders on a permanent foundation. Modular homes are also called system-built, factory-built, or prefabricated (“prefab”) homes.
Stratford Homes has been building exceptional quality custom modular homes since 1973. Their mission is to deliver quality and savings to each homebuilder through construction efficiency. Each modern Stratford Home offers superior value, attractive styling, comfortable living space, and energy efficient features. The company has built nearly 12,000 customized modular homes and buildings throughout the U.S. and Canada, each one carefully crafted using the latest knowledge, methods, and materials. Stratford’s homes are every bit as durable, safe, and structurally sound as traditional homes built fully on site.
Once you decide on a design for your home, Stratford builds each structure in its Rathdrum, Idaho, manufacturing facility, just like it would be constructed on its permanent foundation. Each step of the manufacturing process is closely controlled under ideal conditions, and both in-house and third-party inspectors perform rigorous testing to ensure the structure meets stringent building code requirements. Once the build is complete, the home is partially dissembled and shipped to its destination.
Homes by Brill will work with customers in the Des Moines metro area to find land, arrange financing, and plan for their new Stratford Home. Once it arrives from the factory, Homes by Brill is the general contractor (GC) for the project, coordinating and managing the entire installation process from permits to punch list. The GC is responsible for coordinating the on-site aspects of the home building process, including permits, excavation, foundation, finish carpentry, HVAC, and garage construction. This ensures that each Stratford home is built with the same high level of quality as our other on-site builds.
