More people are familiar with the term"modular" than"systems-built" when describing a house that is constructed off-site and trucked into its permanent foundation. Modular homes are constructed in a manufacturing center and consist of anywhere from two to eight modules for average houses up to 3,000 square feet.
Modular homes are available in all styles and sizes. The modules or sections of a modular home are hauled to a job site 70-90percent complete. After the house reaches the job site, the modules are raised onto the home's base using a crane. A finish crew will subsequently finish the home by tying from the roof segments, siding and interior finish. After the home has been put, your builder will complete additional features such as garages, porches and decks.
Your brand new system's assembled modular home is inspected at the assembly plant during each phase of building. Evidence of this inspection is normally shown by the use of a state or inspection agency label of approval.
As stated by the National Association of Home Builders, made homes, sometimes referred to as mobile homes, is just another sort of construction system and are constructed to a different building standard. This normal, 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 found.
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 homes.
