Step 4 – Home Site Planning
Now that you’ve found the perfect home and the right property, the exciting part starts – preparing the site, installing your home, and getting ready to move in.
Dream Home Outlet will be a great resource for this project; we will be there to help at every step in the process.
To start, we both need to CLEARLY understand who is performing what functions at every stage in the home site planning and home installation timeline. We have put together this super handy Site Preparation Checklist that we can both utilizing – both as a starting point as well as a road map.

If you have property in mind that you think would be good for a Dream Home Outlet manufactured, modular or mobile home , there are some things you should check out before you proceed:
Placement of the home on the property – Will the site accommodate the home size selected?
Access to the site – Homes are delivered on heavy, oversized trucks, so road access is important.
Zoning, permits, development fees – Are there any regulations that would keep you from installing your home?
Utility location – Is there access to gas, electricity, water, sewer or space for a septic system, and all other utilities you need?
Preparing the site – The land needs to be cleared, graded, and made ready to accommodate your new home.
What Happens On Your Home Site
As your home is being built, preparation of the site will begin.
A work crew will grade the site (if necessary), clear vegetation, and provide access to basic utilities.
If a well or septic tank is necessary, timing must be carefully coordinated so they are available to connect to your home when it is delivered. This ensures that all utilities are available at the completion of construction and ready for the final inspection process.
Proper Installation: The Key To A Durable, Long Lasting Home
Once your manufactured, modular or mobile home is delivered, professionally trained installation personnel need to complete the home, connect your utilities, and arrange for any required inspections.
The correct installation of your home is critical.
Here’s where working with Dream Home Outlet’s installation professionals and/or your own experienced, independent contractors really pays off. The final steps will vary by home model and the location where the home is installed.
As part of the process, coordination with third-party vendors will be scheduled to install accessories such as awnings, porches, garages and other out buildings.
Cleaning & Move-In Preparation
When the installation work is done, your home will be thoroughly vacuumed, dusted, and any construction debris removed.
Unlike a site-built home, installation typically only takes a few weeks rather than months.
