Modular Homes are similar to manufactured homes in many respects. Like manufactured homes, a modular home is factory-built under a roof protecting it from bad weather during construction. And, just like a manufactured home, the savings from the construction process saves you money.
The major difference in the construction of a modular home is that it is built to meet the building codes and standards adopted by local cities and states. For you, the homeowner, the larger floor plan space usually allows for more customization during the design phase.
