Hive Modular offers three lines of model homes, and each one was designed to meet a certain type of buyer’s needs.

Homes typically include large two-story central areas to maximize the use of daylight and help the homeowner save money on their energy bills each month. Many homes feature large groups of windows on the top floor to let in as much light as possible.

Design concepts often include clean lines for a modern and comfortable home that’s welcoming and warm. Some floor plans also preserve the loft-like design with catwalks that allow you to maximize the home’s vertical space.

Let’s take a closer look at Hive’s homes and all they have to offer.

What Hive Homes Are NOT

If you’ve ever read through container home kit reviews, you’ve probably seen one glaring complaint: constructing the home can be difficult for the average person.

Hive homes are not like DIY kits. The company and its team of professionals will construct the home on your site.

 

Where Hive Operates

Hive Modular works with homeowners all over the United States and Canada.

How the Building Process Works

Hive homes are different than other modular homes. And compared to container homes prices, the average Hive modular home is costly. With that said, you get what you pay for with modern prefab construction and Hive homes are more robust, easily customizable and built with sustainability and style in mind.   To be concise, their build quality is among the best in the industry.

Hive’s modular homes are built with wood framed construction materials, much like a traditional site-built home. But the main difference is that the modular home is reinforced and strengthened, so it can withstand over-the-road travel.

All Hive home designs allow you to easily add square footage in the future. The unique design of these homes allow you to start out with just the right size for your current family, and as your family grows, add new rooms (or several rooms) to the structure.

When you search for Hive modular home reviews, one of the main questions is: how much will this cost me?

Some modular home companies post the costs of building their homes, but Hive does not. As the company says, the cost of the home will ultimately be dependent on your location, your choice of fixtures and finishes, and the state of your home site.

But the company is transparent about what’s included in the estimated cost of the home. These items include:

  • Site work
  • Finish specification (cabinetry, flooring, tile, lighting and plumbing)
  • Design and architectural services

Items not included in the estimate include:

  • Green systems (solar, geothermal, etc.)
  • Extra site engineering projects
  • Appliances
  • Landscaping
  • Garages or detached buildings
  • Furnishings

Hive homes are fabricated, constructed and set quickly, so homeowners can move in as soon as possible. The company makes the entire process as simple and straightforward as possible, so you aren’t left guessing which stage comes next and how much the project will cost.

For homeowners looking for a sustainable home that features a modern design and efficient systems, Hive Modular is a smart choice.
