Where are you located?

1375 South Blackhawk Blvd Mt Pleasant UT 84647. It’s about a 2-hour drive south of Salt Lake City UT in a very small town in central Utah.

Do you have more floor plans or larger homes?

FrontierCurrently we only offer the homes listed on our website. We do not build custom homes. If you are looking for multiple homes or a multi-family housing project, we can customize the homes to fit your specific circumstances and land. Contact us to discuss your specific project needs.

Can we make modifications to the plans?

The overall dimensions and size of the home cannot be modified. There is some flexibility with the interior walls and window and door locations in the home. We will try our best to adapt our floor plans to meet your specific building lot and needs.

Following are examples of changes we can make:

  1. Make a room smaller or bigger.
  2. Add or delete closets.
  3. Change the overall look of the home by using different siding, roofing, doors styles, etc.

Do you sell through dealers or direct?

We currently sell direct to you to keep the cost as low as possible. However, if you are interested in working with us as a dealer or reselling our homes please contact us.

What about financing?

What about financing?

There are some financing options available depending on which type of home you will be purchasing – on a trailer chassis or on a permanent foundation. Send us the details of the home you are interested in and we’ll help you get financing.

Are Zip Kit Homes considered manufactured homes?

NO. Manufactured homes are built to a less stringent building code (HUD Code). Zip Kit Homes are built to a more stringent building code – depending on which option you choose:

  1. On a trailer chassis. If you choose to have the home built on a trailer chassis then your home will be built to the ANSI A119.5 building code for park model units and be considered a park model trailer. It will be assigned a VIN number and be taxed as personal property, no different than an RV or motorhome. Most municipalities also consider park models as RV’s so the same rules and regulations apply.

  2. On a permanent foundation. If you choose this option we will build your home to the International Residential Code (IRC) and the Uniform Building Code (UBC). These are the same building code as most site built homes in the United States and are the highest standard. Because the homes are built to these building codes, appraisers and banks recognize them no differently than any standard built home (only smaller). This allows you to qualify for FHA and USDA financing at low interest rates. This also ensures a higher resale value of your home.

What building code are your homes built to?

What about inspections?

Inspections for Zip Kit Homes are no different than site-built homes. All inspections are completed in our factory by certified, 3rd-party inspectors. We work directly with your local building department to simplify the inspection and permitting process.

Can you ship the home anywhere?

That depends on the home. Larger homes are more expensive to ship than the smaller homes so distance becomes a larger factor. Usually shipping is more feasible within 750 miles of our factory in Mt Pleasant UT 84078. Keep in mind that the further you are from our factory, the more expensive it will be.

Are Zip Kit Homes considered sustainable and green?

Yes. Our homes generate about 80% less waste than standard site built homes. In addition, because we focus on energy efficiency, your home will require less energy and natural resources to maintain and enjoy.

Can you build LEED certified homes?

Yes. However there are some additional costs associated with additional inspections, tests and planning.

How much does it cost to ship?

That depends on the home. Please refer to the specific home you are interested in for shipping costs.

Can I pull your homes with my own vehicle?

Depending on the home, you can pull it with a 1-ton pickup truck that’s set up properly for heavy towing - but we don’t advise it. The homes are designed and engineered to be set in place and not moved often. They are not designed with lightweight and streamlined features to be pulled like an RV.
