A modular home is a house that is typically built inside in a factory setting. Once the home is completed it is transported by truck to the owner’s location. Basically, a modular home is one that is built off site and shipped to the final location. Since modular homes are built indoors they are immune to weather challenges and can be completed much more quickly and efficiently than typical stick built homes. The typical turnaround time on a modular home is weeks, rather than a year or so with a custom onsite build.
