What Is A Modular Home?
July 28, 2014 - Manufactured Homes
A modular home is built in one or more sections in a factory, then transported and installed on a permanent foundation at the home site. Modular homes are designed and constructed to meet all state or national building and fire codes in your home?s final location.

Careful Construction and Delivery
Once the main modules of your new home are constructed, complete with attached walls, floor, ceiling, wiring, plumbing and interior fixtures, they are transported to your lot and placed on a permanent foundation by a crane.

Fast Finish
Depending on the size of your new home, it could be fully set onsite and weathertight in as little as one day. Your local builder will do final finish work.

Speed of Construction
Modular construction allows for a quick turnaround between groundbreaking and occupancy. Custom modular homes are often built in a fraction of the time needed for a comparable custom site-built home.

Most work is done in the factory, so weather delays, missing materials, and subcontractor no-shows are all but eliminated, saving time and money.
