What are modular homes?

Modular Homes

modular homeWhen many people think of modular homes, they think of boxy, cookie-cutter structures with no creativity and no style. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

Today’s modular homes come in as many styles, shapes, and sizes as you can imagine. The sky is the limit when considering the kind of modular homes you can build. These homes can be built as ranch styles, traditional, farmhouses, European inspired, and many more. They can be one-story, two-story, or more. They can even include a basement foundation.

Building Systems Network has been building modular homes in the Atlanta area since the 1990's. They have built modular homes of varying sizes, including a $700,000 home and an 11,000 square foot mansion. The possibilities available for modular homes are endless, and custom-designing for is available as well.

Manufactured homes are built to comply with the Federal Construction Safety Standards Act (HUD/CODE), which requires homes to be constructed on a non-removable steel chassis. Many communities have restrictions on where manufactured homes can be located.

Modular homes are constructed to the same building code required by your state, county, and specific locality and therefore are not restricted by building or zoning regulations. They are built using a highly engineered method of producing buildings or building components in an efficient and cost effect manner. They are built in a factory and then carried by sections to the sites where they are put together by a local builder.

Building modular homes, compared with building traditional site-built homes, offers great savings to the home owners. Becausethey are built in factories, labor is used with maximum efficiency, with skilled craftsman moving between workstations on the factory floor. Superior quality control, reduced waste, and faster completion (30-90 days versus 4-9 months for site-built construction) are primary benefits.

The combination of reduced cycle time, more efficient construction, unlimited customization, and a growing shortage of skilled trades are the primary reason many builders and homebuyers are switching from traditional site-built homes to modular homes.

modular homesThe popularity of modular homes is growing at almost ten percent rate over the last five years. Forecasters see modular homes increasing in market share by twelve percent annually well into the next millennium (Frost & Sullivan). In fact, modular homes have received a lot of press recognition this past year. Country Living Magazine chose a modular home for its 2005 “Home of the Year.” This is the first time a modular home has been chosen for this honor. In 2004, Bob Villa’s “This Old House” television show did a 13-part special highlighting modular homes. Clark Howard is still is a big proponent of modular homes on his radio show.
