Have Questions?

Browse our list of frequently asked questions to learn more about our homes and process. Have a question that isn't answered here? Send an email to and we'll be in touch soon. 

  • How did Liv-Connected get its name?
    Liv is a contraction of Linea Vitum, which is Latin for lifeline.
  • What do Conexus and Via mean?
    Conexus is Latin for "connection, joining together, or combination". Via is Latin for "by way of." We chose these because of the Latin origin of our company name as apt descriptions of what each home is meant to do: bring families together and allow people the freedom to roam.
  • What does CLiC mean?
    Unlike other modular companies that build individual pieces of a home's shell, we developed the CLiC system so we can build volumetrically. The core parts of the home come fully assembled in components from the factory. These multi-purpose pieces act as the structural support of the home, but also come with all finishes, appliances and fixtures installed, allowing for quicker assembly. We then use Link pieces to create rooms of any size. Clients can plug and play the pieces to configure the home to best suit their needs.
  • How is Liv-Connected different from other modular companies?
    Liv-Connected saw two options in the modular industry: great design at high prices or affordable options with little regard for design. Bridging this divide with a combination of elegant design and affordable prices is our mission. Liv-Connected also offers one-stop-shopping to get you through the entire buying process, including add-ons and upgrades to personalize your home to fit your needs.
  • How are the Via Homes different from mobile/trailer homes?
    While the Via Home and mobile or trailer homes are all technically prefabricated, transportable homes on wheels, only the Via meets NOAH standards in construction quality, including much more robust insulation. More insulation means greater comfort and lower heating and cooling bills. Additionally, the Via is designed with greatly improved ergonomics and design sensibility, with more windows and natural light than other tiny or mobile homes.
  • How are these different from FEMA homes?
    FEMA has been using temporary disaster relief manufactured housing to shelter victims following hurricanes, floods and other natural disasters. The Via house is not temporary; it can be used for long term, permanent housing. As such, it is built to a much higher standard, both in design and quality of construction. Vias can be quickly deployed and provide a superior living experience.
  • Where does Liv-Connected deliver homes to? How much is shipping/trucking?
    Liv-Connected can deliver homes anywhere in the United States. Cost will vary based on location. Contact us for a shipping cost estimate.
  • Where are the homes manufactured?
    Our homes are manufactured at our 100,000 SF factory in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania.
  • Can I visit your manufacturing facility?
    We love for our clients to visit us, especially when their homes are in production. Visits are by appointment only. Please email info@liv-connected if you’d like to see our facilities.
  • Can I buy a Liv-Connected home as an ADU?
    Absolutely, if your site allows ADUs to be built. If you’d like us to check that for you, please get in touch with us.
  • What kind of customizations do you offer?

All other packages must be done during the initial order as they require the core elements of the home to change. The following customization packages are in R&D and will be available soon. If any of these packages interest you, please contact us and we will notify you when they become available: Certified Passive House Off-The-Grid Home Cold-Weather Package Financing & Land Acquisition Assistance Extended Warranties
  • Are the homes ADA compliant?
    ADA compliant models are available for the Conexus and Conexus+ Homes.
  • I like parts of your home, but not others. Can I customize?
    We offer packages that allow you to pick and choose from a selection of colors and finishes. Our design guidelines also provide you with different layout options, but we understand every site is different, so our homes are fully customizable to fit your needs.
  • I want to make upgrades but don’t want a whole package. Is that possible?
    Packages must be purchased in their entirety, but please reach out to us with your specific request and we’ll see what we can do.
  • I have a design item that’s not offered in the options. Can I use it?
    Customizations operate within the available packages offered by Liv-Connected. If you wish to make a significant number of customizations outside of these options, please contact us about our custom home program.
  • Can I change the size of the rooms you offer?
    We can easily change the length of rooms in 4’ and 8’ increments. Please let us know what changes you would like and we will work with you to customize.
  • Are the homes energy efficient?
    Our homes meet the requirements in most climates for insulation and are heavily tested for air leakage, making the interior incredibly efficient. The windows meet or surpass the most stringent codes, and our lighting is LED, reducing electrical loads. We offer several upgrades to further increase efficiency if this is desired.
  • What’s sustainable about Liv-Connected homes?
    Modular homes are by nature more sustainable than standard site-built homes by taking less time and materials to build. We source as much as we can from local suppliers and utilize only low waste, environmentally friendly materials. We offer packages for sustainable and certified Passive House homes, and Liv-Connected is dedicated to staying on top of the latest technologies to aid in making life more sustainable
  • How are the home components inspected?
    All components of Conexus homes are inspected by a third-party inspector in the factory and given a seal of approval before being packed. All homes comply with the city and state codes of the sites to which they are delivered. Some municipalities require additional inspections are needed. If that’s the case, Liv-Connected can help you coordinate inspections if needed. All Via Homes are certified by NOAH RDI.
  • Are the homes fire / flood / wind resistant?
    Liv-Connected homes are made of wood framing, clad in metal or fiber-cement panels. These materials are deemed non-combustible, but not fire-proof. On most sites Liv-Connected advises the homes be installed above base flood elevations so flooding should not be an issue. If it is placed in a flood prone area despite this recommendation, most floor types included are waterproof and there is no gypsum wall board, only sealed plywood. The house should perform much better in a flood short term with less risk of mold or mildew, however long term exposure is not viable as the structure is wood and could be damaged. All models include 6” framing and can withstand significant winds.
  • Can the homes handle snow load?
    Yes, our homes are engineered to withstand harsh winters and significant snow load.
  • What are the site requirements for a home?
    All home installations, including the site conditions, must meet the requirements of local building codes, so we can help you determine what that will require by coordinating with an architect or civil engineer to review the possibilities for: Foundation Driveway Grading & Leveling Tree Removal Connections to municipal utilities And any other site requirements We can assist by connecting you with our preferred architect and engineer, or work with one of your choosing. The architect will need to file for approval for the house in most municipalities and coordinate utility connections, and the engineer will need to coordinate soil testing and foundation design for the house. Houses can be built on many types of foundations; helical piles above ground, mat slab, above a basement, whatever arrangement the site allows and you desire.
  • How do I find a contractor?
    We can recommend a Liv-certified contractor to install your home on site, or we can coordinate with your contractor if you have one. We will provide an installation guide so your home is assembled exactly as it should be.
  • Do I need a permit to get and build a home?
    You typically need permits to conduct work on site including demolition, soil removal, tree removal, site protection, foundation installation and other things. Most states do not require a separate permit for modular homes the way that they do for site-built homes, but each location is different. We can assist you with figuring out which permits you need and help you get them.
  • How much do permits typically cost?
    Permit costs need to be reviewed on a case by case basis. Every municipality has a different review process, and as a result expenses differ between them. We’re happy to assist and provide estimates for these services when we review your site.
  • What if I don’t have a location yet?
    In the coming months, Liv-Connected will be assisting in identifying site locations with local sales agents. In the interim, feel free to reach out and we’ll see if we can make a connection to agent that can help you with your search.
  • Do I need a special permit to drive a Tiny Home on the road?
    Our homes are designed to be driven without a permit, meaning they are not wide-load and can be towed by any capable vehicle.
  • How do utilities connect?
    We will provide connection points (points of entry) on the outside of the home to the municipal utility. This may be an important consideration in determining the layout or location of your home on your site, but typically all piping and wiring will be within the walls except for the connections, which are located under the home.
  • Do you offer payment plans?
    Our payment schedule requires an initial $500 refundable deposit. This can be paid online, by phone or through an e-pay app. Once we receive your deposit, a representative will reach out to discuss the payment schedule and method for the rest of the project.
  • Can modular homes be funded through a lender?
    Absolutely! We are working with lenders such as Rocket Mortgage to become lending partners, but many banks will provide loans for modular projects. If you are interested in financing, please reach out and we can walk you through the process.
  • How do I/my lender send payments to you?
    We accept the initial deposit online with a credit card, via your favorite e-pay app or through certified check or wire transfer. From that point on, your sales representative will walk you through how to pay in whatever way is most comfortable for you
  • What is included in the home cost?
    Our homes typically include everything from the exterior cladding in. While homes do not come with furniture, they will include standard appliances, fixtures and finishes. Homes do not include a foundation, garage, site work, or landscaping, but we can assist you with those items. We also offer add-on packages, including fully furnished and appliance upgrade options.
  • How much does site work/foundation work/trucking cost?
    These service costs vary greatly based on location and the condition of your site. If you provide us an address, site survey, and some photos, we are happy to provide an estimate.
