Nelson Manufacturing

Our homes are created in climate-controlled facilities where temperature and humidity are monitored and regulated to ensure that the materials are kept out of elements. The major elements of your home: trusses, roof, walls, floors, are all built with consistency. Our experienced employees are able to control the building process much more effectively and often our modular homes surpass building codes.

Climate Controlled Manufacturing

Nelson Homes’ goal is to keep modular homeownership affordable and attainable. One way we do this is by saving money and time through climate-controlled manufacturing. It ensures the lumber and materials remain dry and are not exposed to the elements. This way, there is less warping and twisting, and the lines stay plumb and perfect. A more comfortable atmosphere ensures there are no lost workdays to weather and our employees are satisfied too.

Nelson Manufacturing Advantages

Compared to a traditional stick frame home, building a modular home is less expensive and saves construction time. Stick frame construction can use more materials, result in material shortages on-site, and take more labour to complete than a modular home build.

Nelson Homes works every year to try and improve its home building practices. Nelson's research and development team's vital internal accomplishment includes the Nelson Energy Wall. Designed to reduce heat loss, save energy, increase r-value, and eliminate on-site costs, Nelson's Energy Wall significantly exceeds Energy Code requirements. Our factory assembled Nelson Energy Wall system applies a 1 ¾” rigid extruded polystyrene insulation that creates a thermal break (no cold studs) and includes an exterior sheathing that allows for easy siding installation.
