Modular homes are built in a controlled environment. Once completed, they are then transported to the designated location. These are commonly mistkaen for mobile homes, but they are NOT mobile homes. The building process is very similar to a home built on-site, except that the process is completed indoors.
There are many advantages to constructing a home indoors. First, there are fewer delays due to weather and other on-site issues. These homes also comply with stricter building codes than what you may find locally. By working in a controlled environment, building materials are not subjected to the same stress and wear. These are just a few of the many benefits of modular homes.
Despite popular belief, modular homes do not all look the same nor do they necessarily have a particular “modular home” look to them. In fact, modular homes can look very much like on-site constructed homes. They may can contain customized features and elements to achieve a specific design.
