Climate Change, Greener Manufactured Housing Investing, and Truth Telling

April 26th, 2019 Comments off

 

ClimateChangeGreenerManufacturedHousingInvestingTruthTellingDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Remember the Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy theory? Do you know who benefited from that narrative? Then you should enjoy the Climate Change storytellers, which used to be called global warming, until too many record cold days forced a change in terminology. Let’s look at three revealing maps that help clear up the controversial topic, by using good old-fashioned facts, reasoning, and science.

 

 

Because either way, properly positioned, manufactured housing professionals and investors can benefit.

 

Let’s use a simple, but highly visual example of the reality of climate change. Because as the video by an atmospheric expert, posted further below, makes this much clear. The climate does change, hour-by-hour, day-by-day, season-by-season, and year-by-year. That said, there is more to it than those bullets.

There are those who say that parts of coastal regions in America may go underwater. Given enough time, they are right, say geologists.

Look at this map of Florida, from 120,000 years ago. That was ages before factories, cars, greenhouse gas emissions, or man-made pollution.

Then look at Florida 18,000 years ago, per that same source. Once more, 18,000 years ago, there were no man-made pollution from factories, cars, jets, or any of the greenhouse gas produced by humanity that climate change crooners talk about.  The peninsula that is known today as Florida went from much smaller than it currently is, to significantly larger than it currently is.

Finally, look at Florida today.

What you see is a simple reminder that the climate and our world ae always changing. The dinosaurs and woolly mammoths are no more, perhaps in part due to climate change that predates the civilizations of recorded human history.

The earth, we know from recorded history, goes through cycles. Those cycles predate the modern conveniences that climate change advocates say they want to do away with in order to save the planet from human destruction “in twelve years,” as proponents like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) and others claim.

 

FloridaClimateChangeSeaLevelChangesOverTimeAnimationDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

This animation graphically illustrates, based upon geological evidence, the significant swings in the size of what today is known as Florida. Those shifts in the sea level took place thousands of years before factories, cars, planes, or other green house gas producers.

 

This writer went to medical school, which is a field of science. This writer graduated “cum laude” – with honors – studying medicine in a third-language.

Science and medicine today are clearly influenced by money and political considerations. Want a grant for climate change? There are places that researchers can get that, but where is the money for common sense in saying that climate change is a natural phenomenon that the United States alone could never change by itself for the better?

 

YouAreEntitledtoYourOwnOpinions.ButYouAreNotEntitledToYourOwnFactsDanielPatrickMoynihanDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

 

While the trends are for coal fired electric generating plants being opened are slowing in India and China, they have been opening coal-fire plants rapidly for years. That’s been true, even as the United States shifted toward “greener” – and more expensive – methods.  The point is that the U.S. is already cleaner than other nations, and has been taking steps, regardless of the climate controversy.

It takes a degree in courage to speak truth against a system pushing a narrative for their own agenda. Is there air pollution in California? You bet. Just go to Los Angeles (L.A.) and see it, if you don’t live nearby. Are there common-sense things to do for cleaner air and cleaner water? You bet. They should be embraced.

That can be good for manufactured housing, either way. See the related reports, linked below the byline, offers, and disclaimers further below.

 

Think About Those Climate Politicos…

But the Green New Deal is riddled with fallacies and hypocrisy. Some of those who promote it are flying private jets instead of going commercial or taking a horse and buggy across country.

 

When a political candidate or someone in public office is crying for a Green New Deal, it’s a hypocritical deception. They may be clueless, or they might be in on the tax raising, opportunity destroying, monopoly-creating game. Because over time, it will only be the huge firms that will survive if the climate change types get their way.

The power to tax, the power to regulate, is the power to destroy.

Richard Lindzen, an MIT atmospheric physicist and one of the world’s leading climatologists, and he’s featured on the video below.

 

 

 

Dr. Patrick Michaels, director of the Center for the Study of Science at the Cato Institute, provides insight into the debate over climate change and the political games played to create policy,” per Life, Liberty and Levin’s YouTube page.

 

 

Consider the videos posted on this page. They are interviews with climate experts, who dispute aspects of the dominant climate change narratives, based upon scientific evidence.  Or just look at the maps of Florida.  But either way, be skeptical and trust in common sense.

 

Summary

The climate was changing before the dawn of human history. If humanity destroys itself though war or plague, there will be climate change after mankind.

But the common narrative is mildly akin to the Russia collusion hoax. Special Counsel Robert Mullens team said they found no evidence that anyone in the U.S. colluded with Russia. Other Congressional investigators came to the same conclusion. Those who say otherwise are deceived themselves or are doing the deception.

Every deception has a goal.

One common goal of deception is to separate you from your God-given rights and your money.

“Less Waste, Better Buying” – Earth Day and Manufactured Housing Image-Building

April 22nd, 2019 Comments off

 

LessWasteBetterBuyingEarthDayManufacturedHousingImageBuildingManufacturedHomeProNews

The conventional housing seller or buyer’s wisdom, pardon the pun, is that manufactured homes cost less because they are “cheaper.”

 

How does the industry respond to that common concern?

A pair of Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) member producers responded to questions on that topic today, to MHProNews or to MHLivingNews. 

On Earth Day, here’s what a MHI-only (i.e.: not a member of the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform) member producer said in a text message, in explaining why a HUD Code home costs so much less than a conventional site built home.

MHImemberProducer2019-04-22_1541DailyBusinessNewsMHproNews

“Labor cost much higher [on conventional housing] as well and seems to be growing” is a topic that another MHI builder told MHLivingNews about today, as part of their Earth Day comments, see that at the link here or below.

While MHI might publish a press release before Earth Day is done, it is now approaching 4 PM ET. The latest search on this topic today resulted in the following.

Given the sad outcome in the last two weeks since John Oliver’s viral – and misnamed – “Mobile Homes” video – it should be stunning to MHI believers that their association failed on even such a basic effort on this topic.

But let’s look at the positive for the industry today – not found by the Arlington, VA based post-production association that claims to represent “all segments of factory-built housing” – but rather, provided by our public-focused sister site, on Manufactured Home Living News.  That link to the left or below the byline is one share with those seeking greener homes.

Trillion Dollar Housing Plan, American Action Forum (AAF) Research on Green New Deal, Costs Graphic, Video

February 27th, 2019 Comments off

TrillionDollarHousingPlanAmericanActionForumAAFResearchGreenNewDealGraphicVideo

In 2018, Statista says that there were some 127.59 million households in the United States.

 

In their analysis of what several Democrats are now referring to as the “aspirational” Green New Deal (GND), estimates that the housing cost component of the plan could range from $1.6 trillion to $4.2 trillion dollars.

To put that in perspective, according to February 2019 data from the U.S. Census Bureau that covers the period of September 2018, the average sales price for a new manufactured home is $83,600.  So, if every household were to receive a brand-new HUD Code manufactured home at that average sales price, it would cost $10,666,524,000,000.

Here’s what the American Action Forum says that the broad-brush costs of the Green New Deal would look like.

 

SummaryTableGreenNewDealAmericanActionForumEstimatedCostsDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

 

To put that in further context, the U.S. now has $22 trillion in federal debt.  This sum would be more that 2 to 4 times that amount, which took the nation’s federal government over 200 years to build up.  The Green New Deal is proposing to spend that in a decade.

The video below, from right-of-center Fox Business has a panel discussion about this topic.

 

 

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell weighed in recently to say that the economic theories behind this plan don’t work. See that in the related reports, further below. “We Provide, You Decide.” © ## (News, analysis, commentary.)

Micro Solar Mods for Millennials

July 26th, 2017 Comments off

InhabitatRHPL&GModularHomesLaunchPodPostDailyBusinessNews408It’s been less than two weeks since the Daily Business News reported on Legal & General’s (L&G) announcement that they were entering the modular housing industry in the United Kingdom.

L&G, which has ties to U.S. based Cavco Industries, is a giant insurance-focused company that has been advocating for the understanding, acceptance, and growth of modular and other factory-built housing.

British housing association RHP has ordered modular homes called LaunchPod’s from the insurance conglomerate’s backed factory, located in Selby, according to the RHP website.

Inhabitat says that their Selby factory is expected to produce over 3,000 homes a year – starting with the LaunchPod’s ordered by RHP, which were designed by Wimhurst Pelleriti, a “micro units” builder.

The units are aimed at one of the age groups who need affordable housing the most – millennial’s.

RHP will be using the homes to break into the intermediate market – helping the growing group of people who don’t qualify for social housing but are priced out of the private market,” the firm said.

The aim of this community is to offer affordable homes to those who don’t qualify for public subsidies or other assistance, but who may not yet be able to afford the market rates for rent.

This is an growing issue seen both in the U.K. and the U.S. Another recent Daily Business News article takes a look at how poorly most minimum wage workers fair in the U.S., while outlining the need for more affordable housing options here in America…

…not unlike the need for these micro-mods.

This building method uses high quality materials and ensures faster construction, a more eco-friendly build and a marked development cost reduction compared with traditional builds,” per RHP.

The LaunchPod homes will be around 280 square feet, but all of the space is efficiently used to make the home feel more open. They are expected to come with luxury kitchens, a lounge, bedroom, bathroom and a veranda – and will be fully outfitted and ready for occupancy soon after being placed in Richmond, a town southwest of London.

RHP were adamant throughout the R&D process that they did not want to use space saving gimmicks such as fold down beds that are maintenance heavy and typically associated with small spaces. Their aim throughout was to provide high quality accommodation that did not compromise on quality or the feeling of space.”

Instead of features like folding-beds, the LaunchPod offers stylish raised beds with storage space underneath. They also manage to fit many luxury features into the small and affordable space. The homes will even be solar-powered to further enhance the savings and ecofriendlyness of the homes.

David Done, RHP’s Chief Executive says: “I’m really excited about this new product and the opportunities it can create for those struggling to rent in London. I was blown away when I first saw the prototype – it is spacious, modern and high quality. This is just one of the ways we’re aiming to combat the housing crisis and will contribute to our target of investing £250M in new affordable homes over the next eight years.”

InhabitatRHPL&GLaunchPodModularHomesPostDailyBusinessNews

Image credit, Inhabitat, L&G.

The estimated cost of the LaunchPod homes, according to Inhabitat, is around £60,000 to £70,000, or around $78,155 to $91,182. However, since these homes are being built specifically to rent, RHP appears to intend to rent them out for $782-$912 per month – compared to the average rental rate for a 1-bedroom flat in the area, which is $1,300.

Set up time?  Just one day per unit, says Inhabitat.

Not only will the homes be less expensive to rent on a monthly basis, but because they are being built to be solar-powered with underfloor heating, the estimated cost of electricity for the LaunchPod is a scant $13 per year.

This certainly all adds up to a growing and bright future for L&G, and modular housing in the U.K. as a solution to the current affordable housing crisis. Will L&G be targeting the U.S market…next? # # (News, Analysis.)

Closer Look, VERMOD’s ZEM= Zero Energy Modular – ‘Manufactured Home Replacement’

June 27th, 2017 Comments off
VermondZEMZeroEnergyModularManufacturedHomeReplacementManufacturedModularHousingIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews410

Photo credits are as shown above, collage and text credits, MHProNews.com. All third party content is shown under fair use guidelines.

Being “green” is all the rage for millions of Americans.  Indeed, sustainability is good – and all forms of modern factory building are demonstrably more sustainable than their on-site built counterparts tend to be.  Just the reduction in wasted materials, which sources say runs about 30 percent, is significant for the environment and for holding down the costs of construction.

In some states, such as California, being green is a looming mandate. For example, GreenTechMedia reports that in CA,  “By 2020, the hope is that the state’s Codes and Standards board will regulate ZNE homes [Zero Net Energy]. As with any ambitious project, the devil is in the details.”

 

In Vermont, VERMOD is making news with their ZEM.

VermodHomesZEMLocationGoogleDailyBusinessNewsManufacturedModularHomeIndustryDataReportsResearchMHProNews

ZEM is short for Zero Energy Modular.  It’s designed to do as claimed, saving their home owners significant dollars on the energy usage side (see chart further below).

VermodHomesZEMExteriorManufacturedModularrHomeIndustryDataReportsResearchMHProNews

To get some clarity on the facts not covered by mainstream media reports, MHProNews contacted the builders of the ZEM, and did some follow up questions in the wake of a story that is found at this link. Phoebe Howe replied for their company.

SingleSectionalZEMVermodHomesManufacturedModularHousingIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Interior ZEM photo provided at the request of MHProNews by Phoebe Howe.

Q1) What building code is the ZEM made to, please?

PhoebeHoweZEMprogramCoordnatorEfficiencyVermontVERMODManufacturedModularHousingIndustryResearchReportsDataDailyBusinessNewsMHProNewsZEM is a modular home, meets the latest IBC requirements, is set directly on a frost protected foundation and is built to meet the Efficiency Vermont Certified: High Performance standard,” Howe said, providing a link to additional information (see download above for more details).

Q2) Was the energy use data broken out by pre-HUD Code homes – true mobile homes – and post 1976 Code Manufactured Housing?

The comparison looks at a new HUD manufactured home delivered today in the same climate, Vermont, with the same program elements (square footage, beds, bath and geometry) as compared to a ZEM,” Howe said, again, see the link above for more details.

Q3) What size is the ZEM, total cost at retail, cost per square foot?

The ZEM homes are custom designed and come in many different configurations but are primarily designed to replace single wide and double wide manufactured homes in parks and on private land.  Most homes are a 14x70ft single box or 26x42ft two box home. The completed homes run approximately $120/sf FOB, which includes a full ENERGY STAR appliance package including dishwasher, clothes washer and ventless heat pump dryer in addition to a ductless cold climate heat pump for heating and cooling, heat pump water heater and fresh air ventilation system.

With crawlspace foundation, delivery, set, utility hookup, and solar, the homes run approximately $160/sf.,” once more added information was provided by Howe, which is shown in the graphic below.

Apples to Apples?

It isn’t easy to determine from the information VERMOD provided if this is a standard manufactured home insulation package they’re comparing to their ZEM or not.  The implication is that it is the same size, but the HUD Code home could be a standard model, as opposed to an upgraded insulation or Energy Star ™ rated home.

As Dr. Harold Hunt pointed out in the snippet quoted below, those involved in ordering manufactured homes know that virtually all builders offer upgraded insulation packages.  There are not many HUD Code builders at this time that offer a net zero production model, but several companies are doing testing and sales of such designs, as the Daily Business News and MHLivingNews have reported.

DrHaroldHuntsEnergyEfficiencyManufacturedHousingReportTexasAMRealEstateCenterManufacturedHomeLivingNewsPostedMHProNews595x511

To learn more about Dr. Hunt’s research on manufactured homes and energy usage, click here or the link above. https://www.manufacturedhomelivingnews.com/not-your-grandfathers-trailer-house/

Howe would find wide agreement among retailers and communities who say that many customers care more about the down payment and monthly payment than total costs (see payment chart above).

What is certain is that while the monthly payment shown in the VERMOD example is lower, it is also lower because of incentives offered, plus a 50 percent longer loan term.  Apples to apples on the loan term, the ZEM would clearly be higher.

It’s also worth noting that with a shift in U.S. energy policy being signaled in the Trump Administration, energy costs may not be rising at the same rates as we’ve seen in the past 8 years.  See our linked report above on that topic.

The builder of the ZEM states that they are scheduled out for several months.  So their project seems to be stable and doing well, based upon the current dynamics of energy rebates and other incentives that are artificially lowering those costs to the buyers of a ZEM.

Green Building Materials Front and Center in Construction

April 8th, 2017 Comments off

Credit: Environmental Leader.

In a new report from Allied Market Research, the firm shows significant market growth for green building materials over the next five years.

According to the Environmental Leader, the “Green Building Materials Market Report” forecasts that the global market is expected to grow from $171,475 million in 2015 to $377,029 million by 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 11.9 percent from 2016 to 2022.

The report also shows that the emission reduction potential of green building materials, higher asset value of green buildings, growth in public awareness regarding green materials, and increase in client and market demand are the major factors that will drive market growth.

With reduced operating costs and a better indoor working environment, the report states that those factors will add to market demand for green building materials.

As Daily Business News readers are already aware, the manufactured and modular housing industries have long shown the significant upside of factory built housing, including lower costs, a more consistent product and strict federal standards.

Factory-built homes are becoming more popular in the housing industry as builders face a shortage of construction workers. Among the upscale modular homes covered, includes the work done by Revolution PreCrafted Homes, where Eric Trump sits on the board of directors. In a survey from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index reported that on average, single-family homebuilders use 10.2 different green products or practices, and 22 percent always or almost always have their homes certified to a green standard.

For more on the green building movement, including Karen Adams, President and CEO of Green Dwellings in Palm Beach, Florida aiming to be the Tesla of modular green homes, click here. ##
