 Modular Home Dealers in Southern Indiana

I am looking for information on modular home dealers in southern indiana, in the Louisville, KY metro area. I would like a 1500-2000 square foot 3BR/2BA home on a slab or partial basement. I have found a Fleetwood Homes design I like (Meadowbrook model # 4563T), but I have seen some very bad info on this brand on other internet forums.
Patriot has been recommended to me as a "good" brand...any thoughts on dealers and brands of modular homes is appreciated. Feel free to respond here or email me privately. I am *not* interested in "double-wide" or "single-wide" homes, only "modulars" !!

Last item: anyone know if you can have a residential fire sprinkler system built into a modular at the factory ????
(It's a firefighter thing I guess Wink yeah right.

Mike in Marysville, Indiana

 Modular Home Dealers in Southern Indiana

Can't help much with brands. I think they are pretty regional around here and mostly because of transportation costs. If shipped by transport, most have to have one or two escorts and police which that runs up transportation costs quite a bit. Many of the installations onto the foundations are done by crane and I suppose a responsible company would use a local crane company. At hourly rates for mobile cranes, a few hours on the highway would really run up the sq. ft. costs of a modular. Low bridges are another problem, some designs can't be delivered to some areas or might require a much longer route that would run up costs, although these things are a company's problems rather than a purchaser's, but they do affect costs.

I think I'd look and see what kind of modulars are around your locality and maybe talk to some owners. Around here there is one dominant company. It is regional and you wouldn't know about it from national advertisements. I checked rebuilding costs at our camp some years back and there's a good reason why the company is dominate. Irrespective of features, nobody else's costs were comparable. I could have saved a bunch of time I spend trying to compare buildings.

Regarding residential sprinklers, I think that any company doing business in Arizona would have systems available. Residential sprinklers have been required in all new residential construction in AZ for about 10 years and I imagine that includes modulars since AZ has a bunch of them.
