Quite often, when people hear the term “modular home”, they automatically think “manufactured home.”
A modular home varies significantly from that of a manufactured, or a HUD home. Today’s modular homes, by law, have all of the same characteristics as that of site-built homes, and must pass the same state and local code requirements as site-built homes.
Both types, of housing, take advantage of climate controlled environment, precision built in fixtures, using all precut materials, and reduced set up time.
Manufactured homes are predominantly single-story. These homes are delivered to the home site in one, two, three, or more sections.
Modular or prefabricated homes can be one or two-stories in height and are delivered to the home site in one or more sections.
