A modular house is a house built in an indoor environment in a factory, and then the whole house is transported to a new location in a permanent house assembled by the contractor and the prefabricated house foundation. But it should be noted that modular houses are not mobile houses. It is just a house that is not built directly on your land. Modular houses are also commonly referred to as factory-built, system-built, or prefabricated houses.
What is the difference between a modular house and a house built on-site?
Since the modular house is built in the factory, more than 80% of the work will be completed indoors, so the construction part of the house can be completed in a few weeks instead of months, and the construction will not be affected by the weather. But modular houses must comply with specific rules, guidelines, and building regulations that usually exceed traditional on-site houses, so there will be stricter review measures.
Advantages of modular houses:
The evaluation of the modular house is the same as the house built on-site, and there is a permanent infrastructure under the house.
General modular house manufacturers provide design services, which can provide certain changes in accordance with customer requirements in a reasonable and flexible manner.
The design style and size of the home can be chosen, not set in stone.
The modular structure can be used for commercial applications, including office buildings.
Modular houses are permanent structures, that is, “real estate”.
Modular houses are also required to review green and environmentally friendly buildings and can be more energy-efficient.
Modular houses are much faster than on-site construction, but the review of modular houses is more stringent.
The mortgage for a modular house is the same as for a house built on-site.
The insurance premium for a modular house is the same as the insurance premium for a house built on-site.
The taxes and fees for modular houses are the same as those for houses built on-site.
