The environmentally responsible nature of manufactured homes starts at the very beginning. Our manufactured or modular homes are built in a climate controlled factory, where supplies are bought in bulk. The construction methods produce less waste, reduce labor cost, and conserve energy. Recycling or repurposing unused products further prevents waste, which reduces the consumption of fresh raw materials, and reduces energy consumed in conventional waste disposal.
At Jacobsen Homes, we store materials away from the elements and recycle wherever possible to save energy and reduce waste. We recycle scrap lumber, aluminum, copper wiring and even cardboard and styrofoam packaging. These materials, as well as steel frames, vinyl lap siding and metal crates can be repurposed to create new products as opposed to costly disposal.
When designing a manufactured home, these green best practices save on costs for both the present and future.
