Why Factory Built?
Why Factory Built?
100% Canadian Built!
The number of differences between traditional site-built homes and factory-built homes have shrunk in recent years, with factory-built housing quickly meeting and exceeding the standards long viewed to be the prerogative of site builders. While factory-built structures are constructed to the same national and provincial standards as site-built homes, the exceptional quality of factory built homes becomes strikingly apparent once you examine the home-building process. With materials and construction performed within climate-controlled facilities, by dedicated trained professionals, and under the inspection of third party agencies, our homes are not plagued by the challenges of rotating seasonal staff or inclement weather. Likewise, daily ongoing inspection and training ensures that challenges are met early and often, reducing the possibility of un-diagnosed concerns. By using automation within the factory floor, from the cuts of lumber to the raising of walls, we can ensure stability and consistency across all jobs performed. This consistency and environmental focus adds to the exceptional energy efficiency of the final home, ensuring the home saves you money.

Home Building Process
Step One - Consultation with Our Client
Clients schedule a consultation with one of our knowledgeable housing consultants to begin discussions around the design of the home. Land, size, budge, decor style, building processes and more are decided. Contracts are then drawn up, deposit and then submitted to the manufacture for building.
Step Two - Building Process has Started
Once client home has been submitted site preparations are started (to build the foundation in which to place the home), and the home begins to take form within a quality-controlled manufacture facility. Triple M Housing professional tradespeople work in stations along a series of assembly lines to create components for the framework of your home that will eventually be installed at subsequent stations within the factory at the exact time they are needed within the homes building process. This efficient right-on-time method of building drastically reduces material waste, wait times for product shipping and wait times for qualified staff to arrive on site to complete their portion of the build as all materials and staff are readily available and on-site within the factory to complete their stage of the home when required.
Step Three - Flooring and Fixtures
Unlike site-built homes, exterior walls and trusses for rooflines are not installed until the final stage of the homes build, allowing carpenters, plumbers and electricians easy access to work within the homes framework to install the homes internal systems. Furnaces, water heaters, fixtures and floor coverings are all installed at this stage.
Step Four - Wall and Roof Installed
Finished interior and exterior walls, flooring and trusses have been pre-created with absolute precision within subsequent assembly rooms are now fastened into place. A continues air/vapor barrier is installed, along with interior drywall while the home rests securely within a one of a kind jig.
Step Five - Final Finishing and Transportation
After passing final inspections, your home is now prepped for transport and loaded upon a certified transport truck to be brought to your location. Your home will be seamlessly transferred from the truck and assembled on-site where final finishing will be completed.
