As stated by the National Association of Home Builders, fabricated homes, sometimes referred to as mobile homes, is just another type of building procedure and are constructed to a different building standard. Many communities have restrictions on where manufactured homes can be located.
More people are familiar with the term"modular" than"systems-built" when describing a house that's built off-site and trucked into its permanent foundation. Modular homes are built at 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 sizes and styles. The modules or sections of a modular house are carried to a job site 70-90percent complete. After the home reaches the work site, the modules are all raised on the house's foundation using a crane. A complete crew will then complete the home by tying in the roof sections, siding and interior finish. Once the residence is set, your builder may complete additional features such as garages, porches and decks.
System's-assembled modular and site-built homes on the other hand, are built to the identical building codes required by your state, county and specific locality and so aren't restricted by building or zoning regulations for manufactured homes.
