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.

There are a variety of building methods to choose from.

A classic, durable prefab home with good insulation value & a unique style. This method can be used for both small cabins and gigantic rustic mansions.
Built in modules (sections), this style of home offers the affordability of factory production with far more design freedom.
By re-using shipping containers, you're able to get a durable skeleton at an affordable price. Then it's customized for a funky look, or more traditional modern appearance.
SIPs (structurally insulated panels) have become popular due to their ease of assembly and high insulation value and ability to make an infinite variety of layouts.
Mobile houses have evolved over the years and today they look very different from their trailer-like predecessors. Just drop it off and your house is ready to go!
