There is never a time with perfect conditions paving the way for you to go forward.
There is never a “right” time to take a vacation.
There is never a “right” time to have kids.
And the list goes on.
But have you ever noticed that even though you can’t ever expect all the pieces to fall nicely into place, you’ve managed to pull through… and in most cases, better than ever!
During this time of crisis, you’re vulnerable to more than just the coronavirus. While that threatens your physical health, the “virus” of negative thinking can threaten your outlook.
It’s hard to keep yourself motivated when all you hear is bad news. But right now, it’s more critical than ever to keep yourself motivated and thinking positively! You were planning to build a new home. Planning a new home is exciting, it’s an escape from today’s news. But a new home is also a goal.

The Time to Dream
Willy Wonka once said: “So much time and so little to do!”. While many have been trapped in their home over the past month, there are many things to do when it comes to your home. But it’s hard to get motivated. This time is a great time to dream, to think about a home plan. Get on some house plan websites, get interior design ideas on Houzz.com, check out pictures of features on Pinterest and Instagram.
Now more than ever before, you have the opportunity to determine what you want in your new home… the colors, the materials, the electronics, etc. Take the time to learn what is possible. Do your research now. It’s time to dream the positive dream about your new home.
The Time to Plan
When you decided to use modular construction to build your new home, it changed the way your new home was going to be built. For some, the idea was to get a beautiful home at a great value. But for many, it was the other benefits, it was the superior comfort, health, and safety that homes built with modular construction provide.
The other reason many choose modular construction is the speed of construction. Traditional construction can six to twelve months to build a home. During that time, things change… you change. Changes equal change orders, which equals more money. Modular construction means thoughtful planning at the very beginning of the process. It means the planning decisions have to be made so materials can be purchased so your new home is built quickly with the speed and quality that can only be delivered by building indoors with manufacturing’s precision.
The Time to Build
When it comes to building your new home, it’s the opportunity to see the dream become a reality. It’s the time when you get to see the results of all of the planning you have done. What you were doing during this time of negative distractions has created a positive result. The research has paid off!
When you watch the modules of your new home being installed, its exciting. You watch as your home, in a matter of hours, comes together at your home site. If you happen to have a neighbor using traditional construction to build nearby, you immediately understand the stresses they must be going through. They have watched as it rained on their floors, as the subcontractor didn’t show up, as materials lay outside for days and weeks in the mud. But you chose a better way to build. Choosing modular construction meant that home was built quickly and efficiently. You and your family will be living in a home that is safe, comfortable, and resilient!
Your Home is Your Sanctuary
Most Americans are now, more than ever before, keenly aware of what their home means to them. Have lived through this event and confined indoors has changed the way many people think. They have learned what they like about their current home. They have also learned about things they didn’t like. But they also had time to be on the internet and explore new things.
The exploration has covered methods of construction, home designs, appliances, electronics, materials, colors, and the list goes on. But researching and discovering these things was all leading to one thing… building a new home that would be a sanctuary. A living space that not only protects your family and yourself but that you enjoyed being in, even for long periods of time. Currently, many people feel stuck at home. In your new home, you wouldn’t be stuck at home… you would be safe at home. It’s about building a home that promotes energy efficiency, durability, comfort, and indoor air quality. That’s what modular design and construction is about. That is the Power of Sanctuary.
