Modular homes are structures built in a controlled and environmentally protected facility. They are built using precise and efficient construction technology. Modular homes are built to the same local and state building codes as a site-built home, but because they are transported to the home site from the factory, modular homes tend to be much stronger than site-built homes.

The terms mobile home, manufactured home, trailer, modular home, prefabricated, and systems built are often considered synonymous. Yes, all are built off-site in a factory setting, but the similarities stop there. There is a huge difference in the building code and manufacturing processes of each of these types of homes.

The manufacturer builds the home and that’s it. That is what they are good at. Your builder provides everything else in the home building process. The manufacturer doesn’t replace the builder. Because of the distance from the factory, it makes sense to work with a licensed contractor that is familiar with the local building codes, local vendors, and local subcontractors that they may need. The local builder prepares your property, brings in the utilities, builds your foundation, and does all final interior, exterior, and site work AND they are there for you after you move in! While building a home is not rocket science, there are a lot of details that, if handled improperly, can cost you a lot of money.
