Yes.  The easiest way to schedule a tour is to fill out the form on the Contact Us page.  We’ll contact you within 24 hours to get more information from you and schedule a model home tour.

Simply fill out the form on the Contact Us  page.  We will contact you within 24 hours and get you in touch with the right salesperson who can answer the questions you have.  Filling out the form helps us be prepared to answer the right questions about the home you are interested in.

That depends on the type of unit you are interested in.


The container homes can be shipped anywhere in the world.


They can be shipped anywhere in the United States, but you are responsible for your own shipping outside of the western United States.  We can provide you with a list of shippers who can give you a quote. 

In the western USA, we can help arrange for shipping.


We can ship our modular units to the following states:

  1. Utah
  2. Idaho
  3. Wyoming
  4. Colorado
  5. Montana

We are looking into licensing in California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon and Washington, but we are not licensed in these states yet.


We only ship our panelized kit homes to the following states:

  1. Utah
  2. Idaho
  3. Wyoming
  4. Colorado
  5. Montana

Right now we only ship our modular units and panelized kits to the areas listed above.  We do not ship outside that shipping area.

That depends on our production schedule and current production backlog.  Sometimes we can ship homes in as little as a few weeks.  For bigger projects, or if we have a full production schedule, our lead time could be 6 months to a year.   We have limited production capacity in our factory in Cedar City UT.

We currently  have two partners, one in Western Colorado and another in Eastern Idaho.

We are licensed General Contractors in Utah and Idaho and may be able to act as the General Contractor for your entire project.  We also have partner GC’s we work with in different areas.  Contact Us about your project and we’ll see if we can help you with a GC for your project.  Generally, we give you a hard bid on all modular units and all the onsite work is cost + a fee.

Modular units arrive about 95% completed from the factory.  They come from the factory nearly move-in ready.  However, if we are not acting as the general contractor, the pricing DOES NOT include the following items and you will need to obtain bids and pricing on these items from local contractors. 

The following work must be completed onsite, not in the factory:

  • Excavation
  • Footings and Foundation
  • Any exterior sidewalks, patios, paving, parking, landscaping, etc.
  • Utility connections from the street into the crawl spaces.  
  • Insulation in the crawl space.
  • Final plumbing connections in the crawlspace.
  • Installing the exterior electrical meter base and connecting the main power from the meter base to the complete electrical panel inside the modular unit.
  • Onsite fire sprinkler connections.  Our modular units come with fire sprinklers already pre-installed and inspected in the factory.  However, connecting the main water line, installing the fire riser and connecting to the fire sprinklers already pre-installed in the  modular units must be done onsite.  Generally, in each modular unit there is a fire sprinkler “stub out” in the crawlspace or mechanical closet for each unit where the main sprinkler line connection is made.
  • Shipping and setting the modular units – We can include shipping and setting (crane, etc,) in our price or your onsite general contractor can include it in his scope of work.  
  • Siding and roofing “stitch-up”.  We can also include this in our price and scope of work or your local general contractor can include it in his scope of work.  Whatever is more efficient.  Generally we like to include this in our scope of work. 
  • Metal stairs and railings for multi-level units.

All factory inspections are completed by certified state inspectors or licensed and approved third party inspectors.  All onsite inspections, such as footings and foundations, are completed by the local building inspectors.  We work closely with the local building official in your area and coordinate and approve all inspections with him or her.

The modular units are either RVIA certified and built on a permanent chassis or must be set on a crawlspace, not a slab.  The floor system is built into the modular unit and we need at least 30” of space underneath the units, in the crawlspace so that mechanical connections can be made in the crawlspace after the units are set.  However, Panelized Kit Homes can be set on a slab.

Yes, as long as they are willing to work with our required payment schedule – See next questions about payment schedule. 

  1. 30% deposit when we begin construction on the kit in our factory. 
  2. 30% when the framing inspection is completed.
  3. 30% When drywall and painting are completed.
  4. The final 10% is due either when the units are completed and ready to ship, or when they are set onsite if we are including the shipping and setting in our price.

NO. Manufactured homes are built to a less stringent building code (HUD Code). Zip Kit Homes are built to the same building code as any other site-built home or commercial building (IRC or IBC latest codes). As far as banks, lenders and appraisers are concerned, the home is NO DIFFERENT than any site-built home.

We build your project according to the International Residential Code (IRC) or the International Building Code (IBC). These are the same building code as most site-built homes in the United States and are the highest standard. This allows you to qualify for FHA and USDA financing at low interest rates. This also ensures a higher resale value of your home.

Currently 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.

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.

That depends on the home, where it is going, etc. Please contact us and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours with shipping cost, etc.  For the larger Zip Pods, a good rule of thumb is $10 per loaded mile.
