Modular homes continue to be difficult to build in the Twin Cities

As the Twin Cities continue to face a massive housing shortage, modular construction has been named as a potential partial solution, but the metro continues to create roadblocks for these builders. Modular homes can be built in 45 to 60 days and cost roughly 25% less than a conventionally built home, but most modular homebuilders don’t even market in the metro area for a multitude of reasons, including more complicated regulatory requirements and logistical concerns that come with urban areas.

With several more modular companies popping up in the metro, these builders hope to help fill a much-needed spot in the market. The simplicity and lower cost of a smaller home are a huge draw for millennials and Generation Z currently left out of the housing market.
