According to the National Association of Home Builders, fabricated houses, sometimes known as mobile homes, is just another kind of building system and are constructed to a different building standard. Many communities have restrictions on where manufactured homes may be located.
More folks are familiar with the term"modular" than"systems-built" while describing a home that's constructed off-site and trucked into its durable base. Modular homes are constructed in a manufacturing center and include anywhere from two to eight modules for typical houses up to 3,000 square feet.
Your 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 country or inspection agency label of approval.
System's-built modular and site-built homes on the other hand, are constructed to the same building codes required by your state, county and specific locality and therefore aren't restricted by building or zoning regulations for manufactured houses.
Modular homes are available in all styles and sizes. The modules or sections of a modular home are transported to a work site 70-90% complete. When the house reaches the job site, the modules are all lifted onto the home's base by means of a crane. A complete crew will then finish the home by tying from the roof sections, siding and interior finish. After the home has been put, your builder may complete extra features like garages, porches and decks.
