What is a Manufactured Home?
A manufactured home can be one of the most affordable ways to create your dream house! Thanks to advanced manufacturing techniques, manufactured homes today offer much more customization and luxury than ever before!
A manufactured home is largely assembled in a factory climate-controlled environment, attached to a steel transport frame with wheels for transportation. These are then removed when set on a foundation system. If the manufactured home is made up of multiple sections, they are assembled on site by certified installers. Manufactured homes rival site-built homes in terms of options, sturdiness, materials, and affordability.
Today’s manufactured housing is highly regulated by federal HUD guidelines and local building codes. With quality, durability, safety, and affordability of highest concern, a federal building code administered by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development has set regulation on everything from energy efficiency to fire resistance. Therefore, a manufactured home is safe, sturday, energy-efficient, and inspected!
What is a Modular Home?
A modular home is the closest alternative to site-built in the factory-built housing industry. Modular homes are constructed in factory similar to manufactured homes, but are regulated and must comply with all local, state, and regional building codes.
The final product is transported to the building site, unattached then lifted off the transport carrier with a crane, and placed on a permanent foundation system which has been approved by your local building inspector. The finishing work such as final duct work and plumbing are completed by licensed sub-contractors. They are then inspected to ensure all construction adheres to state regulations with all work completed up to standard.
They are affordable ways to create your ultimate dream home!
