Copy of North view

When you think of the option of acquiring one of the best steel kit homes, the first thing to come into mind is the cost of acquiring one. Sometimes, it is much easier to think that this type of home comes with a fixed price tag, one that is similar to cars. You may think that every model has a fixed price but in truth, they do not. Actually, the costs of kit homes are much more complicated than that.

Right now, there are number of kit home selections that you may be able to choose from. Many manufacturers today may have a dozen, or even more, kit home models that are available and oftentimes, the prices of these models will be posted in the manufacturer’s website or even a brochure.

When you ask about kit home prices, make sure to ask the entirety of the costs. Sometimes, you may only learn about the frame kit prices, or the price for the frames used. A Lock-up kit would automatically increase the level of the price to about 20% and if a full kit will increase the price to 35-45%. All of these three kit prices are for the kits alone and they often do not include other fees such as delivery costs, soil tests, local fees, excavation, footings, tiling, kitchen, plumbing, electrical lining and a lot more.

Another complication with the prices is the material you choose for your kit. You may be able to choose from a variety of materials like pine and steel. And if the designs do not come in favor with you, then some manufacturers will give you the option of customizing your kit home.

The reason for all the complications is that manufacturers cannot give you the full pricing details plus the other fees until you are fully decided on what you want.

But there is a way for you to know everything about all the things you are paying for. You would have to directly call the manufacturers yourself. You can ask them for a full quote. Naturally, they would first need to ask you about all the details you want for a kit home before they give you a complete answer.
