It is a home built by an advanced building system. That's all. A Site built home is also a building system but it is built the old way, board by board.|
Modular homes are constructed to the same building code required by your state, county and specific locality using the same quality materials as site-built homes. The major difference is that modular homes are built in a factory and delivered in modules. Modular homes are the strongest of all wood-framed homes, and are usually better than 90 percent complete when delivered.
The modular building system uses jig & assembly line efficiency to build a house without the structure being exposed to rigors of climate & weather. Mass buying of material, assembly line efficiency & a climate controlled atmosphere results in a superior product for less money.
