Frequently Asked Questions
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.
