Modular Home: How it’s Built

Modular-Home-How-its-BuiltModular Home: How it’s Built

If you’re shopping for a new home, a modular home is a great option. An idea whose time has come, a modular home is constructed in a factory, where the environment is controlled, and can be beautiful, energy efficient, and built to last. Here, Palm Harbor Homes explains the advantages of buying a modular home.


  • A modular home is built in a controlled environment. Even though most big ticket items— like automobiles, computers, and smartphones—are built in a factory, many people still buy homes that are constructed on-site. While that’s a great way to buy into a neighborhood, where a builder can work on many jobs at once, it’s also a great way to expose your unfinished dream home to the elements. One good storm can result in disaster, and even average weather conditions can deposit contaminants and allergens into your home while it’s being built. A modular home, on the other hand, is safe from harm, built in a factory, where quality standards are rigorous, and expectations are high.
  • Factory construction means continuity of quality. All the parts are in the factory, all the plans are engineered and tested, all the variables are eliminated, and a dependable crew of experienced factory employees comes to work each morning ready to build new homes. This results in a beautifully constructed modular home, built by people who know exactly what they’re doing and which materials to use for long-term customer satisfaction.
  • If you want a good value in a short time frame, you want a modular home. Factory construction is cost effective, so even homes built of the highest quality materials will be less expensive than traditional construction. Even better, a modular home is built at the factory and assembled on your property in a matter of weeks, which means you can move in much sooner than you’d expect to with on-site construction.
