Mobile vs Modular

What is the difference between a modular home and a mobile home?
A modular home is designed to sit on a foundation. The frame is for transportation purposes only and is removed prior to placement on the foundation. Modular homes are built to BOCA Code (the same as stick-built homes). A mobile home can be built to sit on a foundation; however, we generally place them on a cement pad. Mobile homes can be manufactured as singlewide or doublewide are are built to HUD Code.

Mobile vs Modular

Do you charge extra for delivery and set-up?
Delivery and setup is included if the home site is within a one hundred mile radius of Oxford, Maine. We may deliver homes outside of this distance at an added minimal cost.

Can I design my own home?
Yes, we will custom build a modular home to meet your specific needs and specifications. Some manufacturers will also customize a HUD (mobile) product. Bring in your own design or fax it to us at 205-539-8849.

How long will it take to build a home if I order one?
The general production time frame is 6-8 weeks, depending on the manufacturer and the time of year.   And remember, WE BUILD YEAR ROUND!

Are your homes built for Maine weather?
All our mobile homes have a standard 16″ O.C. 40lb roof. Modular homes typically have a greater snow load and can be built to meet or exceed the requirements for your area. Our homes are built to the highest standards, they are energy efficient and can even be built with Energy Star or green features.

Every mobile and modular comes has a full one year limited warranty. Some feature a 10 year structural warranty.  In addition, many of the brand name components, such as appliances, shingles and vinyl siding used in your home are covered by separate manufacturer warranties.
