What is a Manufactured Home?

A manufactured home is built indoors in a factory-like setting. The finished product is covered and transported to its new location, and assembled there. A manufactured home is simply a home that is built off-site, rather than on-site.

 

Advantages:

  • Faster. They’re built 66% faster. 
  • Quality. Built by full-time, highly skilled employees for consistent, on-time delivery.
  • Customizable. Tell us what you want, and it gets built that way.
  • Green. Building this way has a smaller environmental footprint.
