As stated by the National Association of Home Builders, fabricated homes, sometimes known as mobile homes, is just another type of building system and are constructed to a different building standard. Most communities have restrictions on where manufactured homes may be found.
More individuals are knowledgeable about 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 built in a production center and consist of anywhere from two to seven modules for typical homes up to 3,000 square feet.
System's-assembled modular and site-built homes on the other hand, are built to the same building codes required by your state, county and specific locality and so aren't restricted by building or zoning regulations for manufactured houses.
Modular homes are available in all sizes and styles. The modules or sections of a modular home are carried to a work site 70-90% complete. Once the house reaches the work site, the modules are raised onto the property's base utilizing a crane. A finish crew will then complete the house by tying in the roof sections, siding and interior finish. Once the home is put, your builder can complete additional features like garages, porches and decks.
Your brand new system's constructed 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 state or inspection agency label of approval.
