Today's modular homes are computer engineered to meet all national, state & local building standards. With hundreds of stock plans to start with, and the ability to computer generate unlimited variations, the design of your "dream" home is limited only by your imagination.
As with traditional building methods a modular home starts with its framework. Modular homes typically use about 30% more material in the framing to insure a safe and secure trip to its destination. Other techniques are used in the factory to strengthen the home for a more solid assembly.
Our homes are built in a modern environmentally controlled facility, using high quality materials. They are precision engineered for a lifetime of trouble-free structural durability. Quality control is maintained by constant inspection throughout the construction process.
In starting a modular home, great detail is given to the layout & strength of the floor, since this is what will carry the weight of the rest of the home. After the floor joist & sub-flooring are in place, the wall panels are put in place. The wall panels will already have the sheet rock on the inside. The electric & plumbing can then be installed. After the wiring & piping is done, all nooks, crannies & crevices are sealed with insulation and the wall cavity is insulated.
Next comes the exterior sheathing, roofing & finished siding. Somewhere in the midst of all this the windows & doors, bath & kitchen fixtures, carpets, cabinets, and heating units are installed. The completed product is then wrapped with a protective material for shipping, loaded on trailers and sent on it's way to you. Of course this is an oversimplified description of the real workmanship and quality products that go into each of our homes, but it gives you a basic idea of the technological advances in the modular home industry.
