Our units are built on site using traditional construction methods. Although we can appreciate a cool container or efficient modular, we believe in using optimized, traditional construction methods. Traditional construction methods are accepted and easily permitted in every city, neighborhood, and municipality within the Valley. The same cannot be said for alternative building methods. Additionally, banks will not finance many modular, container, or prefabricated homes because they are movable in nature. Traditional construction adds greater value to your existing property and more financing opportunities for our customers. It is our opinion, that on-site construction delivers the highest quality product for the best possible value.

Who executes field construction for MLC?
All MLC projects are built by Minimal Construction LLC, ROC # 334200.
How many units have you sold?
We have sold over 75 units in Maricopa County.
What kind of materials are used to build these units?
MLC’s commitment to excellence is evident in their meticulous attention to detail and dedication to providing top-notch construction. By framing their units with 2×6 lumber instead of the standard 2×4, MLC ensures not only enhanced structural integrity but also gains additional space for adding more insulation.
The strategic use of high-quality spray foam insulation sets MLC’s units apart, guaranteeing an above-average R-Value. This insulation not only optimizes energy efficiency but also contributes to a comfortable and sustainable indoor environment, keeping occupants cozy in winter and cool in summer.
The level 4 interior drywall finish further exemplifies MLC’s pursuit of a smooth, modern aesthetic. This superior finish not only adds a touch of sophistication to the interior but also highlights their commitment to delivering high-quality workmanship in every detail.
In terms of windows, MLC prioritizes durability and energy efficiency by employing commercial-grade, aluminum-framed, low-e glass. These windows not only allow ample natural light to flood the space but also help maintain comfortable indoor temperatures, reducing the need for excessive heating or cooling.
Furthermore, MLC’s commitment to traditional construction methods ensures that each unit is 100% site-built. This approach not only showcases their dedication to craftsmanship but also allows for greater customization and adaptability to meet the unique requirements of their customers.
