Is it a mobile home?

 
No, it is not. Mobile homes don’t offer the longevity, quality and resale value of a modular. Mobile homes are constructed on a non removable steel chassis. Modular’s while portable are not on a chassis and once on the foundation are as if they were stick built there.

Why does it matter that it's certified?

Being certified is very important. It means that the materials and construction are certified to meet codes for your county and state. Each state follows it's on set of modular codes and our engineers will provide you with a set of site specific drawings to make sure your home meets the requirements for your area.

 

What are the pros and cons of modular?
 
Modular homes have come along way in the recent years and have become very popular. They offer home buyers a more cost effective option over stick built and mobile homes. Being constructed by the Amish in a factory-like setting means stricter quality control, quicker build times and protection from the elements during construction. There is less cost and down time associated with modular’s and on average they’re up to 15% cheaper than a stick built home.

 

The down side use to be the lack of customization, but with our timber frame construction our floor plans are fully customizable. This allows the customer to make full use of the interior square footage while achieving the look and functionality they want in a new home.
