If you are looking for a piece of land to build your new Greenfab home on, we can help. Greenfab has a large network of real estate professionals and brokers who are dedicated to and experienced in finding our clients the right property for their new home. Whether it is a property with an existing home on it or a vacant lot, we will make sure you find a home and neighborhood you love at a price you can afford.
During your land search process, we will perform a FREE pre-feasibility analysis to make sure that the lot you purchase is well-suited for a Greenfab home. We will look at the accessibility for our trucks and cranes, potential barriers, and any site-related red flags that could negatively impact your budget.
To learn more about what to look for in an ideal site, please read our Land Search Guidelines document that outlines a few key issues to think about when looking at property options.
If you are looking for a site outside of our network are area, we can connect you with a qualified real estate professional. Contact us today to get started.
Greenfab conducts a Project Feasibility Assessment for each client and project to assist in determining the most cost effective solutions to achieving your goals.
Feasibility includes a site evaluation, conceptual design proposal for modularizing project components, initial cost estimates, and proposed schedule. The fee for this service is included in the purchase of your home and will be credited back to you upon purchase.
Our feasibility assessment will evaluate and highlight the following items:
Feasibility for Greenfab pre-designed or custom home: Steps 1-10
- Evaluation of the property, to determine the possible placement of the building
- Confirmation of the local zoning regulations
- Evaluation of the local administrative requirements
- Soils evaluation
- The availability of all utilities
- Whether or not a well and/or on-site sewage system can be located on the property
- Evaluation of all aspects of the building’s transportation to and erection on the property
- Evaluation of the preparatory site work required on the property
- Create a preliminary site and foundation plan in order to obtain initial budget numbers for foundation.
- Other construction or engineering-related issues that could affect your ability to complete the final erection and completion of the building.

Greenfab offers a wide range of architectural design styles depending on your needs. We offer two ways to design the home of your dreams. You can either work with us to custom design a home or select a pre-designed home from our catalog of pre-designed homes. We can also work with you to modularize a set of home plans that you really like or already have.
Steps to designing a custom Greenfab home:
- You fill out a home design questionnaire
- Greenfab develops conceptual floor plans based on your needs
- You choose from a variety of materials and finishes
- Greenfab finalizes the design and engineering drawings that you approved
- Greenfab can now start the process of building your home
Steps to selecting a pre-designed Greenfab home:
- You select a pre-designed home series, model and floor plan layout
- You choose from a variety of material and finish packages
- Greenfab finalizes the design and engineering drawings based on your choices
- Greenfab can now start the process of building your home
You can either work with our in-house architects or have an independent architect collaborate closely with our design team. Regardless of the situation, Greenfab produces all final shop drawings and submits the design set for modular permit and production.
Greenfab offers professional guidance and a turn-key service throughout the entire home building process including:
- Factory and site contractor coordination and management
- Schedule and financial draw management
- Quality control checks during construction

Greenfab offers our expertise and direction for projects seeking LEED for Homes, Built Green, Passive House, ENERGY STAR and Living Building Challenge certifications. We will help you develop sustainable design strategies as well as manage the project certification and documentation process.
WHO MANAGES THE FOUNDATION AND SITE CONSTRUCTION?
We do. Typically, you will work with any of our approved general contractors who have experience with our homes, foundations and preparing a site for a modular home. As a company focused on customer satisfaction, Greenfab is dedicated to helping you throughout the entire home building process. If you choose to hire your own contractor, there will be a learning curve as they will be building the foundation to the specifications we provide and working directly with the crane and installation crew. We can only guarantee the work for you that we do with our approved contractors.
WILL GREENFAB DO EVERYTHING FOR ME?
Yes. Greenfab offers a complete line of services including architecture, landscape design, general contracting, and manufacturing. We do this to make sure you are getting the quality service that you deserve.
WILL GREENFAB COMPLETE ALL THE WORK ONCE MY HOME IS DELIVERED?
Yes. Greenfab will manage and coordinate everything for you until you are comfortably living in your new home. The same approved Greenfab contractor that completes the work to prepare your site for a home will also be there to complete the installation and finishing work necessary to make your home “move-in” ready. With Greenfab, you will never feel alone.
IS THERE A FREE CONSULTATION?
Yes. We can answer most questions by phone or email and you can call us at any time 1-877-846-4445. You can also get the answers to many questions by visiting our FAQ’s. If you feel you would like to meet with us in person, we can arrange for that as well. We will also meet with you at your site once you have retained us to complete a Feasibility Study.
WHY DO I NEED GREENFAB TO DO A FEASIBILITY STUDY ON MY SITE?
We would like to determine if your site can accommodate both the house and its delivery. Each site has unique conditions and topography, i.e. flat, slightly sloped, steep hillside, irregular shaped, etc. We would also like to check with your local planning agency for any construction restrictions, as well as any general building requirements for your site. If it is straightforward, we can assist you with this process at no charge. If the site is more complicated we can have our setting consultant visit the site to ensure a smooth delivery for a small fee.
IS THE FEASIBILITY STUDY FEE REFUNDABLE?
Yes. If we determine that it is feasible to build a Greenfab home on your site, the fee is credited towards the costs of the Purchase Order. If you choose not to continue building your Greenfab home, this fee will not be refundable.
DO YOU SUPPLY THE LAND TO GO WITH THE HOME?
Yes. We have knowledge about land availability throughout the Pacific Northwest and will work closely with our Greenfab real estate professionals to find the perfect site for you new home. If you are looking for a site outside of our network, we will help to connect you with a qualified real estate professional within our network.
WILL A GREENFAB REPRESENTATIVE VISIT MY SITE?
Yes. We will visit your site for the first time during the feasibility study period to determine if your site can accommodate a prefab home. We will also visit your site throughout the site construction, craning, setting, and finishing process. With Greenfab, you will never feel alone.
HOW DO I CHOOSE A GREENFAB HOME THAT IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Greenfab offers homes through our pre-designed line of Standard Homes and through a custom, From Scratch process.
WHAT IS A STANDARD HOME?
Our Standard Homes have been pre-designed to help you with the often times daunting task of designing a home From Scratch. With our Standard Homes, you will always start with a Base Home incorporating finishes that have been optimized to balance design and sustainability with cost and enhance efficiency and value. From this base, you will have many Upgrade Packages to choose from to make your home fit your specific lifestyle needs.
To learn more, please visit our Our Homes section or call your Greenfab representative at 1-877-846-4445.
Upgrade Packages: When customizing your Greenfab home, you have the option to choose from a variety of upgrade packages to help make your home truly unique to you. Our upgrade packages have been created to offer style, finish and sustainable performance options.
To learn more, please visit our Upgrade Packages section or call your Greenfab representative at 1-877-846-4445.
WHAT IS A DESIGNED FROM SCRATCH HOME?
If you cannot find a home that fits your lifestyle or design preferences, Greenfab can help you design and build a home just for you. Our From Scratch, or custom design process, takes a little more time and costs a little bit extra than our Standard Home designs but you can be assured to get the home of your dreams. During this process, you will work with our architects to design your home from scratch. This design process assures that you will get the right Greenfab home for you, even if you cannot find one while browsing our standard homes.
HOW MUCH CAN I CUSTOMIZE A GREENFAB HOME?
Once you have selected a base home from within our line of Standard Homes, you will be able to customize your home through a variety of Upgrade Packages. Our upgrade packages have been created to offer style, finish and sustainable performance options. As with our custom, From Scratch process, your options are endless although each home will be designed to modular efficiencies.
