Modular Home Photo Gallery - In the Factory

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.
