Lakeland-based modular home manufacturer, Affinity Building Systems, located on the Valdosta Highway, installed a model home on Saturday, June 22, to showcase their products and the benefits of modular homes.
Affinity Building Systems built the model home to display to their clients and partners the quality of their products and to illustrate why one should choose modular construction over traditional construction. Modular homes are built in sections at a factory, in an assembly line layout, which allows the homes to be built more efficiently than traditional site-built homes. These sections are then shipped to a site where they are assembled by an authorized builder.
“Because modular homes are built in a controlled environment, none of the materials used in the construction process have been exposed to the weather,” Tony Watson, CEO of Affinity Building Systems said, “This increases the longevity and quality of the home.”
The floor plan of this modular home has been named the “Kingfisher.” This floor plan was designed in-house at Affinity Building Systems in addition to their 35+ original floor plans. The model home was set up next to their manufacturing plant in Lakeland, and both facilities are available for tours on the second Saturday of every month by appointment.
“I am delighted to be able to show our clients a physical home rather than just pictures,” said Watson. “This is something we have never been able to do.”
With the model home, employees at Affinity Building Systems will be able to exhibit the numerous options available to their clients.
