Home Builder blazes trial as North Georgia’s premier
modular home contractor
After several informed round-table forums
with county officials and two zoning hearings before the county
commission, Building Systems Network is rapidly moving forward with
plans to become the preferred residential, Multi-Family and
Office Builder in North Georgia using building systems.
Hall County officially took steps to make the latest in home
building technology available to it’s residents on July
7,2002 by approving systems built homes for all zones.
This change allows the latest in technological advances in
the home building industry to be used in Hall County. A planning
department report said that this building process “exceeds
county building standards.”
Building Systems Network has been developing affordable, quality built homes
since 1998 and set their first systems-built home in Hall
County in February 2002.
“These are not manufactured homes,”
said Grant Smereczynsky, developer of Building Systems Network
. “These are modular homes. They use 30% more material
than a site-built process an can be built faster, stronger
and better because construction takes place in a climate-controlled
Regardless whether you’re talking about factory-built,
panelized or modular homes, implant construction quality is
invariably superior to what can be done on a job site. Parts
cut with a hand saw or a hand-help power circular saw at a
job site cannot possibly be as precise as those cut with a
$10,000 radial saw or a $100,000 component cutter in a factory.
So, what is a modular home?
Simply put, a building system is a highly engineered method
of producing building or building components in an efficient
and cost effective manner. The use of building systems is
common in many different types of residential and commercial
Systems built housing is one of the fastest-growing modern
forms of construction gaining a growing recognition of its
increased efficiency and ability to apply modern technology
to the needs of the market place.
Smereczynsky believes that once people see the product actually
set on the foundation, they will understand why they are superior
to today’s site-built home.
Systems built and site-built homes are constructed to the
same building code required to your state, county and specific
locality and therefore are not restricted by building or zoning
regulations. A quality control process provides 100% assurance
that our home has been inspected at the plant during each
phase of construction. Evidence of this inspection is normally
shown by the application of a State or inspection agency label
Today’s modular homes encompass the entire spectrum
of the housing market from the affordable sing-family and
multifamily housing to high-end luxury homes (several companies
produce models that sell for over half a million).
Building Systems Network’s Sales Manager Greg Ryan confirmed
the company’s intent to establish a Model Home Center
in Gainesville. “Hall County is the hear of our market
and is where we intend to focus our efforts to deliver homes
ranging form 1000 to 5000 plus square feet. We are specializing
in affordable, high Quality Lake home that can save the home
buyer from 5% to 20% over other builders.”
Building Systems Network is a member of the National Association of
Home Builders, Modular Building Institute, Modular Building
Systems Association and the Building Systems Council. Rowland
also stated that Building Systems Network has exclusive relationships with several
of the large systems building companies including HandCrafted
Homes, Excel Homes and Genesis Homes. Building Systems Network is “Top
Performing Builder” for HandCrafted Homes in 2002.
