Modular homes are the new custom-built homes of today. Not only are these homes are more environmentally friendly, but they have unlimited design options from a traditional colonial to a Mediterranean home. Because of their “green” approval and how easy it is to build a modular home, these homes are becoming more and more popular. Are you confused as to what exactly modular homes are and how they’re designed? Read more information below!
Modular Homes Actually Start in a Factory
If you’re picturing a house built on a conveyor belt, you’re wrong! A modular home built in a factory is similarly put together like a home on-site. However, the major difference is that modular homes are built indoors in a temperature-controlled environment. Because these homes are built indoors, the building materials are protected by the elements, thus making the home safer for its future inhabitant. Not only that, but because these homes are protected from the weather, the construction process moves along much faster than a home built on-site.
Modular homes are built in sections, usually room by room, and designed in a computer-aided design program. The construction starts with the fabrication of the floor, then interior walls are attached. After sections of the home is built in the factory, they are covered, then carefully delivered to its final location on flat-bed trucks. Builders will finish the process by assembling the rooms together, then attaching the exterior walls complete with windows and siding, then finally placing the roof on top.
