More folks are familiar with the word"modular" compared to"systems-built" when describing a house that is constructed off-site and trucked into its permanent foundation. Modular homes are constructed at a production center and contain anywhere from two to seven modules for average homes up to 3,000 square feet.
System's-built modular and site-built homes on the other hand, are constructed to the exact same building codes required from the state, county and specific locality and so aren't restricted by building or zoning regulations for manufactured houses.
Your new system's built modular home is inspected at the assembly plant during each phase of building. Evidence of this inspection is normally displayed by the application of a country or inspection agency label of approval.
According to the National Association of Home Builders, made homes, sometimes referred to as mobile homes, is just another kind of construction system and are constructed to a different building standard. Many communities have restrictions on where manufactured homes may be located.
Modular homes come in all sizes and styles. The modules or sections of a modular home are carried to a work site 70-90percent complete. Once the home reaches the work site, the modules are all lifted on the home's base using a crane. A finish crew will subsequently complete the home by tying in the roof sections, siding and interior finish. Once the home is put, your builder will complete additional features like garages, porches and decks.
