it’s a bird, it’s a plane…no, it’s a modular home

I had a fun business assignment in west suburban Maywood this morning.

A company has started selling modular homes that transform an empty lot into a ready to live in home site in less than a week.

The houses come in two parts and a huge crane lifts them into place.

This particular structure all ready had a chandelier hanging from the ceiling.

When I first arrived, the scene had “America’s Funniest Home Videos” written all over it. I pictured all sort of things going wrong but in the end, the workers made it look so simple.
