About Heckaman Homes

Heckaman Homes is a producer of custom modular homes, also known as off-site or systems built homes.  Established in 1969, Heckaman Homes is one of the oldest modular home manufacturers in the Midwest having built more than 15,000 houses from its original location in Nappanee, Indiana.  All homes are built to meet state and local building codes.  Heckaman Homes build three styles:  Ranch, Cape Cod, and Two Story.  There are a variety of layout options available in each series. 

 

What is a modular system?

Many people, when they hear the term "modular", automatically think "trailer or double wide".  A modular system is neither.  True modular (system built) homes have all of the characteristics of site built homes and must pass the same code requirements as site built homes.  The difference is that the true modular home is built in a controlled environment.  And the appearance of a true modular is the same as that of a site built home. The difference between modular and manufactured homes is often in the permanence.  For instance modular homes are placed on a permanent foundation; whereas trailers, or manufactured homes are built on a steel chassis with wheels attached.  This is so the trailer can be moved or towed.  Almost always the wheels are removed.  However, it is possible to reattach the wheels and move the manufactured home in the future.

 

Advantages of a true modular system . . .

True modular’s have many advantages over site built.  These include:

  • Controlled environment that eliminates unpredictable delays and protects the materials from inclement weather
  • Timely manner in which our homes are built
  • Construction by trained craftsman, quality-control personnel, and independent third party inspections monitoring each stage of the construction process
  • Built to state and local codes, inspected by the State of Indiana
  • Qualify for FHA/VA or conventional mortgage
  • Each home undergoes a rigorous quality control check list
  • Over 80 different floor plans available
  • Know the price - no overruns or material price changes
  • Brand name components: Andersen Windows, Merillat Cabinets, Certainteed Shingles, and the list goes on an on
  • Scheduled completion date
  • Home and Property that appreciates in value 

 

All of these advantages mean more house for less money.  A modular home is a definite advantage to the family looking to get the most for their money. So when we start building, there won’t be any unexpected delays or expenses.  That could make a big difference to you!  Because we have a production schedule, you know when your house will be built, and you know the price when you sign your building contract.

 

Energy efficiency is their standard – not an add on…

Their energy efforts go so far as to caulk every electrical outlet to an exterior wall to stop air infiltration, R-19 (2 x 6) side walls and R-30 ceilings are standard, as well as Andersen windows.  Heckaman Homes consider themselves experts on energy saving.  Their homes are only sold through experienced and qualified local builder representatives.  These builders provide the knowledge of tasks necessary for a successful process from start to finish.
