CONSTRUCTION FACTS

Modular home constructionModular components are typically constructed within a large indoor facility on assembly lines much like Henry Ford originally instituted with his automobile company. Such facilities use an assembly line track to move the modules from one workstation to the next. Independent building inspectors are on site to supervise the construction and ensure that all building codes are adhered to during assembly.

Up to 90% of construction process of building a modular home takes place in a factory, where tradesmen in assembly-line fashion, build modules with a precision incomparable to on-site construction. Modules must be well built in order to withstand transportation and lifting, allowing for finishing touches to take place in a matter of days. Modules range in size from 10 to 18 feet wide and 36 to 76 feet long. Walls, ceilings, flooring, wiring, plumbing, are built-in.

Building modules are assembled to form a completed modular building at the destination site. [Citation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modular_home]
