Modular homes are built in components called "modules" in a climate-controlled facility. Constructed on an assembly line by skilled and trained craftsmen ensures that modules are built square and precise -- sometimes in as little as a few hours. Modules are checked for quality at each stage in the construction process and evaluated for code-compliance before ever leaving the facility.
While each modular facility is unique - and most modular homes include custom elements - a general outline of the assembly process is below.
Floor systems are assembled on a jig
Factory assembly aids quality control and hastens the construction process
The home's walls are prepared simultaneously
The home's walls are lifted into place
The floor and walls are assembled with precise corners and angles
Roof systems are also assembled on a jig
Hinged-roof systems allow for easier transportation of modules and more intricate roof designs
Completed roof systems are fastened to the module
Foam is used to seal around drywall
Electrical work, including interior wiring, is added in the factory
Drywall is added to the interior walls
Most interior fixtures, including cabinets, are installed in the factory
Roof shingles are attached to the roof system
Completed modules are sealed and wrapped
Once all home modules are complete, they are transported to the home site together to ensure a quick and on-time set.
