How long do I have to wait from the time I order my home until it is delivered?
The time will depend on how many homes are on order (backlogged) and the number of custom items in your home. The actual time to build your home would be about 2 weeks from the start of construction at the factory.

Shelter Homes provides a one year manufacturer’s warranty that covers defects in materials and workmanship. Years two through ten is a structural warranty provided by Progressive Warranty. These warranties cover the major structural components of your home. Additionally, the manufacturers of some items in the home provide their own warranty, eg. Appliances, hot water heater, furnace, shingles, etc., which may extend beyond the one year manufacturer’s warranty.
