Modular Homes vs. Mobile Homes vs. Site Built Homes

Today's "mobile homes" are called "manufactured homes," by housing experts. Manufactured homes are built to HUD, or U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development standards. Modular Homes are built to state and local building codes with high standards and very consistent quality controls.

Modular homes and manufactured homes are all built in factories under controlled environments. There is no moisture, wind or hot sun to interfere with the building schedule or to damage materials. Construction methods and materials vary, and modular homes can be customized to meet energy efficiency, accessibility and lifestyle needs.

Modular homes, prefabricated homes or factory-built homes are pretty much the same as ones built on site. Whatever can be done design wise on a site built home can be done in a modular home. Modular floor plans can be custom designed to meet your needs. It can certainly be argued that Modular homes are built to higher standards and better specifications.
