What is a Modular?

Modular is simply a construction process, not a type of house. Modular homes are constructed to the same code as site-built homes with requirements set forth by state and local government for the specific locality. Various model building codes serve as the basis for most state code requirements. Examples include the International Residential Code (IRC), Uniform Building Code (UBC) and the National Electrical Code (NEC). Homes built to local requirements can be financed through conventional mortgage institutions. Modular Homes are set on a concrete crawlspace or basement.

What is a Manufactured Home a.k.a "mobile home or doublewide"

These are homes built entirely in the factory under a federal building code administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards (commonly known as the HUD Code) went into effect June 15, 1976. Manufactured homes may be single- or multi-section and are transported to the site and installed. The federal standards regulate manufactured housing design and construction, strength and durability, transportability, fire resistance, energy efficiency and quality. The HUD Code also sets performance standards for the heating, plumbing, air conditioning, thermal and electrical systems. It is the only federally-regulated national building code. On-site additions, such as garages, decks and porches, often add to the attractiveness of manufactured homes and must be built to local, state or regional building codes.

What is a Pier Foundation?

Pier Foundations are used for manufactured homes.  Concrete Pillars are poured 42" into the ground below the frost line.  The home is set on blocks which are tied down to the concrete pillars.

What is a Crawlspace?

A crawlspace is a 4 ft concrete perimeter foundation.  The modular home is rolled on to the crawlspace foundation and is then considered permanent. 

Is financing available for Manufactured and Modular Homes?

YES! We work with several lenders who offer financing for land home packages with modular or manufactured homes!  Rural Development, FHA, WCDA, and Conventional Loan programs are available. Home only loans are available as well.

Do I need a Construction Loan?
