More people are familiar with the word"modular" than"systems-built" when describing a house that is built off-site and trucked into its permanent foundation. Modular homes are built in a production center and include anywhere from two to seven modules such as typical homes up to 3,000 square feet.
System's-assembled modular and site-built homes on the other hand, are constructed to the identical building codes required from the state, county and specific locality and therefore aren't restricted by building or zoning regulations for manufactured houses.
Modular homes come in all styles and sizes. The modules or segments of a modular house are transported to a job site 70-90% complete. Once the home reaches the job site, the modules are lifted onto the home's base utilizing a crane. A complete crew will subsequently complete the home by tying in the roof segments, siding and interior finish. After the home is set, your builder can complete additional features such as garages, porches and decks.
According to the National Association of Home Builders, made homes, sometimes known as mobile homes, is another sort of building procedure and are constructed to a different building standard. This benchmark, the Federal Construction Safety Standards Act (HUD/CODE), unlike conventional building codes, requires manufactured homes to be assembled on a non-removable chassis. Most communities have restrictions on where manufactured homes can be located.
Your new system's assembled modular home is inspected at the assembly plant during each phase of construction. Evidence of this inspection is normally displayed by the use of a country or inspection agency label of approval.
