According to the National Association of Home Builders, made homes, sometimes known as mobile homes, is another type of construction procedure and are constructed to a different building standard. This standard, the Federal Construction Safety Standards Act (HUD/CODE), unlike conventional building codes, requires manufactured homes to be constructed on a non-removable chassis. Most communities have restrictions on where manufactured homes may be located.
More individuals are familiar with the word"modular" compared to"systems-built" when describing a home that is built off-site and trucked into its permanent foundation. Modular homes are constructed in a manufacturing facility and consist of anywhere from two to eight modules such as average houses up to 3,000 square feet.
System's-built modular and site-built homes on the other hand, are built to the exact same building codes required from the state, county and specific locality and therefore are not restricted by building or zoning regulations for manufactured homes.
Modular homes come in all sizes and styles. The modules or sections of a modular home are transported to a job site 70-90percent complete. After the house reaches the job site, the modules are lifted on the house's foundation by means of a crane. A complete crew will subsequently finish the house by tying in the roof segments, siding and interior finish. After the residence has been set, your builder will complete extra features such as garages, porches and decks.
Your new system's constructed modular home is inspected at the assembly plant during each phase of construction. Evidence of this inspection is normally shown by the use of a state or inspection agency label of approval.
