Modular Housing

Modular houses are prefabricated off-site similar to mobile homes, but each house is comprised of a variety of different ‘modules’ so there isn’t the same restriction on size. As a result of this freedom virtually any house could essentially be made in different modules at a factory then assembled together on the final job site.

The price range of modular housing is typically slightly higher than with mobile or panelized homes, but the amount of labour you need on site to finish the home after all of the components are delivered is minimal so there are some benefits.

One downside with modular homes over panelized homes is that you’re still working primarily with traditional wood framing and insulation so unlike with SIPs the insulative properties are limited to those of a traditional style home.
