  • Used vs. New, Cars and Houses

    My first car I bought used from the lot in the neighboring town. I couldn’t afford a new car, so I tried to find a reputable dealer and bought what my budget would allow. I told myself that someday I would be able to buy a new car but in the meantime, this had to work. That car served its purpose. It got me where I needed to go. It didn’t get very good gas mileage, so a lot of my hard-earned dolla...

  • Custom Homes with Economies of Scale

    Advanced Systems Homes knows that most residential “stick built” custom home builders cannot take advantage of economies of scale. Economies of scale is a fancy name for the phenomena of costs actually decreasing as a company produces more, or in this case, as more homes are built. Economies of scale describe the cost advantage that sometimes occurs with the increased production of a product.In th...

  • Good Bones

    I heard my husband say it the other day as we were walking the neighborhood, “that house has good bones”. We were watching workers diligently hammering away on the roof of an old home. They were hard at work trying to restore it. “They are lucky” he said, “a lot of houses just fall apart as they get older”. As we continued walking I recalled the old movie “Money Pit” where the comedy ensued from t...

  • Family

    I watched the Super Bowl mainly for the commercials. I admit it. I didn’t really have a dog in the fight so I figured what the heck, if companies are going to spend $5 million on an ad then they will probably be good. Some were disappointing, but one of my favorites was the Super Bowl “babies” that showed all the kids of the players that were conceived because of the football season coming to an e...

  • It's 10 O'clock, Do You Know Where Your Home Builder Is?

    There used to be a public service commercial on T.V. that would say “It’s 10 O’clock, do you know where your children are?”.

  • Don't Think About Buying a New Modular Home This Week

    Usually, this blog talks about modular building and how Advanced Systems Homes can help you buy and build that new home.

It should be a time of family and friends concentrating on each other, and the good ther...

  • ASH Modular Homes Built in the Heart of America

    Some people refer to Kansas as “fly over” country. Advanced Systems Homes doesn’t consider Chanute, Kansas that way.

  • Real Cost of an Older Home

    My economics instructor in high school taught us, “there is no such thing as a free lunch”. She was trying to get our young minds to wrap around the concept of the “real” cost of things. I remember her talking about how there are other things to consider as “costs” besides the dollar price of the actual lunch. If getting the “free” lunch came at the expense of not hanging out with your friends and...

  • Senior Care- Time is Turning

    It’s a difficult thing, watching your parents or loved ones age into their senior years. Isn’t it ironic how we were totally dependent upon them early in our lives, and now as time marches on, they become dependent on us? I guess that is what family is all about. Each of us watches out for and cares for the other in times that they are the most vulnerable. The difficulty comes in being able to lea...

  • Crazy House Sculpture

    There is a crazy house on display in a sculpture park in Washington D.C. The perception changes depending upon what angle you view the piece. I am sure this artwork was designed and painted in an artist’s studio, and then it was placed on the museum grounds when it was completed.That’s the same way Advanced Systems Homes builds a new modular home.  Not crazy, like this art piece, and not in a stud...

  • Gingerbread House = Modular Build

    My grandmother used to make these beautiful giant ginger bread mansions. She would work from some baking “plans” that detailed how to make several of the rooms at a time and then assemble them on a specially prepared base. She would tell me how much easier it was to do the complete rooms and then, when you were sure they were perfect, put the whole thing together.In a way, that’s how Advanced Syst...

  • 2016- Build that New Home Before Mortgage Rates Go UP

    When are housing rates going to rise? The November Presidential Election is next week and everyone keeps thinking that things will change drastically afterwards.

  • Scary? How Much did you REALLY pay for your New Home?

    “How much did you end up paying for your new home, Bob? All in price per square foot?” I asked my friend. “I am afraid to say”, he replied, “Because if I add up all the extra charges and costs my builder charged me, it will scare me!”“Did you make a lot of changes to the floor plan?”“No, we kept the floor plan the same. The builders just kept tacking on things here and there. Extra price for prepa...

  • Winfield Kansas Modular, The Better Way to Build

    In the middle of Kansas, the traditional method of building homes is to do it the “stick built” way. You find a floor plan you like, you find a general contractor (or try to do it yourself) and then you start building it the “naked” way, piece by piece, open to the elements and vulnerable to the next coming storm.A few builders will give you a low square footage “base” estimate to lure you into si...

  • Log Home Maintenance Nightmare

    I had a dream to own a little log cabin nestled away on some property in South East Kansas. My dream was to own a rustic getaway that I could happily call my own new home. Except, sometimes when dreams become a reality they can actually turn into nightmares!The folks at Advanced Systems Homes, the modular home builder in Chanute Kansas, encouraged me to do a little research on what owning a true l...

  • Box - Think Outside of it with ASH

    While driving in Western Kansas recently, I saw a home on a trailer. I’m not sure of its final destination.  The outside of the home was complete except for sections of the roof (they were covered in tarp). I thought it was cool that it was “all in one” and then it dawned on me….that’s just one long big box.Having your house delivered all in one piece can limit the type of floor plan and layout of...

  • Turn Key Modular New Home

    Most of us want a new home. But we shouldn’t have to be our own General Contractor. We want to pick out the floor plan and make as little or as much aesthetic choices as we want. The light fixtures, the appliances, the cabinet fronts, the flooring style, whatever we choose to decide and let somebody else do it.  And we want the price per square foot to be included in this so that the whole build c...

  • Aging in Your Own Place

    One of the most common phrases coming out of my mother’s mouth before she passed was “I am NOT going to live in a skilled nursing home!” And yet, her home that was built for raising a large family became more and more of a senior trap as the years passed. My brothers and sisters tried very hard to keep her in the home, but she was miles away from any of them and when she slipped and fell in the ki...

  • Modern Open Floor Plans Built the Traditional Modular ASH Way

    I remember my grandmother’s farm house that was built in 1865. It was a large home that had lots of small enclosed rooms so that if a room was not being used regularly it could be closed off, saving the wood heat for the other parts of the home that were in use. Most homes back then had similar floor plans. If my grandma saw the “open” floor plan homes that Advanced Systems Homes is building today...

  • Construction Loans

    Financing the build of a new house is different than purchasing an already built new home. The “construction phase” can be the trickiest step. You see, the bank or savings institution who is footing the whole sticker cost of the house (unless you happen to have 150,000 laying around) is taking a bigger risk and TRUSTING that the buyer and their builder will indeed construct something that is worth...

  • Can you believe THIS is a modular home?

    Look at that picture. It is not a rendering, it is a real house; it was taken using a drone flying over a subdivision. Isn’t that house beautiful? It’s a dream house! Nestled in the heart of South Eastern Kansas. Would you believe this is an ASH Modular home?Most people associate Modular with low quality, mobile home type manufacturing. The Advanced Systems Homes buildings are quite the opposite. ...
