What is a Modular Home? Facts about Systems Built Homes
  1. Simply put, a building system is a highly engineered method of producing buildings or building components in an efficient and cost effect manner. The use of building systems is common in many different types of residential and commercial construction.

  2. Modular Built and site-built 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. A quality control process provides 100% assurance that your home has been inspected for code compliance and workmanship. Your new home is inspected at the plant during each phase of construction. Evidence of this inspection is normally shown by the application of a State or inspection agency label of approval.

  3. Modular built housing is a fast-growing modern form of construction gaining a growing recognition of its increased efficiency and ability to apply modern technology to the needs of the market place.

  4. When you add up all the labor, material and time savings inherent in the systems built process, you will find that the price of your home is generally lower than a traditionally built home of comparable size.

  5. Superior quality control, reduced waste and faster completion (30-90 days versus 4-9 months for site-built construction) are primary benefits.

  6. The increased efficiency of construction results in greater value for the homeowner. Efficiency begins with modern factory assembly line techniques. Work is never delayed by weather, subcontractor no-shows or missing material. Harmful weather never touches the inside of your home.

  7. 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-building to systems building.

  8. Today's Modular built homes encompasses the entire spectrum of the housing market from the affordable single-family and multifamily housing to high end luxury homes (several systems built builders produce several models that sell for over half a million).
  9. Modular built housing is growing at almost ten percent rate over the last five years. Forecasters see systems built housing increasing its marketshare by twelve percent annually well into the next millennium (Frost & Sullivan).

  10. Computerization has enabled systems built producers to take a mass customization approach and design all models to meet a homeowner's particular needs. The options are endless!

FAST FACTS:  MODULAR HOMES

  • The building blocks of modular homes - individual modules - are housing componenets constructed in a controlled factory environment.
  • Individual modules are up to 90% complete with shipped from the factory to the home site. All walls, flooring, ceilings, stairs, carpeting, and even wall finish are completed in the factory before shipment.
  • Once all building materials arrive at the factory, some manufacturers can assemble modules in a single day. Typically, a two-story, 2,500 sq. ft. home can be constructed in a factory in under a week.
  • Aside from any cost savings, modular homebuyers benefit from the short assembly time of their home – reducing any amount of weather damage or home site vandalism. Over the life of the home, modular homes save money because they are incredibly efficient.
  • In 2002, modular homes accounted for 3% of the new, single-family homes constructed. Outside of metropolitan area, that figure jumped to 12%. From 1992-2002, modular housing production increased 48%
  • One of every ten homes built in the northeast is a modular home. That region accounted for 29% of the nation’s modular activity in 2001. The South Atlantic region was a close second with 26%, and the Great Lakes region third, accounting for 24%.
  • The most popular states for modular construction in 2001 were North Carolina, Michigan, and New York.
