FAQs: Manufactured Homes, Modular Homes
What is the difference between site-built, manufactured homes, and modular homes?
Site-built, or stick-built, homes are constructed entirely at their home site. They conform to all codes at their location. Over time they retain, and often increase, their value.
Manufactured homes are built in a factory, in a completely climate-controlled environment. They can be in one section for a singlewide, or two sections for a doublewide. They are transported to their destination and put together (if in two sections) by a qualified professional set crew. They can be placed on a permanent foundation, on pads, or footers.
Modular homes are built in sections at a factory, in a completely climate-controlled environment. They, too, conform to all codes at their destination. Afterwards, they are transported to their destinations and put together by qualified professional crews. They are typically less expensive per square foot than site-built homes, made with 20 to 30 percent more materials than site-built homes, and increase in value over time as site-built homes do, with the same expected longevity.

Construction costs are usually as much as twenty to thirty percent less per square foot than similar “stick-built” homes. You can also save time, as modular homes typically will be ready to move into up to 3 to 6 months sooner than a site built home.
