What is a modular home?

A modular home is one that is built indoors in a factory-like setting. The finished products are covered and transported to their new locations, where they are assembled by a builder. A modular home is not a mobile home; it is simply a home that is built off-site, as opposed to on-site. These homes are often called factory-built, system-built or prefab (short for prefabricated) homes.

Modular and manufactured homes are not the same. Manufactured homes are not placed on permanent foundations. Manufactured homes, sometimes referred to as (but are not always) mobile homes, can be moved from one location to another. There are specific laws and regulations regarding these relocations. Modular homes are permanent structures — “real property.” They receive a CO (certificate of occupancy) like a site built home. 

Modular homes can be built on crawl spaces and basements.Modular homes are considered a form of green building. Modular homes are faster to build than site-built homes. Home loans for modular homes are the same as site-built homes. Insurance premiums for modular homes are the same as site-built homes. Taxes on modular homes are the same as site-built homes. Modular homes can be built to withstand Miami dade HVHZ 175-mph winds.

What is a difference between a modular home and a site built house?

Because modular homes are built indoors, they can be completed in a matter of a few weeks, as opposed to months. They don’t see the typical on-site delays caused predominantly by the weather. Modular homes must conform to specific rules, guidelines and building codes that often surpass those of traditional on-site homes.

Why build with a modular system?

Modular homes are fast to build. Site inspections are not needed for the home (only for site work in most counties), as these are done in the factory. Our Modular homes are much more energy-efficient, so your monthly expenses will be substantially less. They also are environmentally friendly. There are a great variety of homes from which to choose, and many architects specialize in designing modular homes.

The main reason we chose modular is its ease to build. No more worrying if the contractor will show up. No more cutting corners. 

What ​are ​the ​benefits ​of ​building ​Modular?

● Steel ​Framing ​Lasts ​Longer ​than ​Wood

● Fire ​Resistant

● Mold ​Resistant

● Termite ​Resistant

● No ​unexpected ​costs

● Fast ​build ​time

● Energy ​Efficient ​and ​sustainable
