Many of our clients who have taken the opportunity to work through permit plans and engineering with Tamlin during the Fall and Winter months are now in a great position to take advantage of setting up delivery schedules for their house packages once their building sites are ready. With the increase in lumber prices since October of 2020, and another sudden surge last month, Tamlin’s house package clients who had already placed their orders last year will stand to save thousands of dollars.
That is one of the big advantages of our house packages. While no one knows where prices are headed, it appears that the residential building industry will stay very active in 2021, which suggests a continued pressure on building materials costs. Tamlin’s house package system helps you save money.
Starting with one of our popular house package models and making modifications is a quick and cost effective way of moving forward fast in design. At the same time, we must ensure that all of our homes are designed to meet your local building code requirements regardless of where you are located in North America.
During our “plan design process” we also consider design restrictions, structural integrity, energy efficiency, efficient envelope design, and optional house positioning – just to name a few items. It is always a challenge to meet expectations for the best design but also help balance overall building costs. Tamlin works closely with owner-builders who are able to provide more of their own resources on their projects by providing them with great design and building support recommendations, or connecting them with our building network.
Finally, for our clients who are able to commit to shipping their prefabricated house packages within a specific time frame, we are offering solutions to hold pricing so that even if lumber prices continue to climb, there will be an opportunity to “lock in prices”.
