How can a whole house be built in a factory, then transported on a truck to my land?
It seems impossible that an entire house can be built in a factory and then transported to your building site. It’s even more hard to believe that once this type of home is installed onsite, it’s impossible to tell it’s any different from a home that was built using the old, traditional process onsite.
Hard to believe…but true. How does it happen?
Interestingly, these homes are built as complete houses in our factory, very similarly to the way homes are built onsite. The major differences are that they are built on a steel chassis (which gives them massive strength that enables them to be transported) and their frames are laid out in sizes that enables them to be broken up into modules for transport.
Broken up???….sounds like the house will look like a mess!
No need to worry. When the homes are built in the factory, special joints are allowed for that makes pulling them apart for transport easy. These modules are then joined together onsite. Once joined, it’s not possible to tell where the joints were. The home’s interiors looks exactly like a house that has been built onsite from the ground up.
Why would you build a modular home?
- Modular Homes are built undercover, in a quality-controlled environment that’s not affected by rain. This type of construction is the way of the future.
- They are typically built much faster than site-built homes.
- They are more economical…so you get more bang for your buck.
- Site works are kept to a minimum. Yes, some concrete footings need to be poured in place but once your new home arrives it’s mostly complete with only a few finishing touches to go.
- Your houses frame is never left exposed to the elements because it’s already way past “lock-up” stage when it arrives.
Now that you know how it’s done, perhaps a modular home is something you might like to consider.
