Modular Homes

What’s the difference between site built and modular?

A site built home is constructed over a period of many months on site, and therefore subject to all the weather elements to come. A modular home is built in a controlled factory environment and is engineered and built to the state or local building codes, just as a site built home is. The modules are then transported to the site and installed on permanent foundations. Modular homes are built with the efficiency and quality control you can only find in a factory environment. Quality engineering and modular construction significantly increases the efficiency of a modular home. Many new homes today are being “systems-built” to rival and often exceed the quality and investment of site-built homes.

With factory built, indoor construction prevents potential weather-related delays and damage. It typically also speeds the process, which may allow you to move in sooner! Ideal can complete excavation work and lay the foundation while your home is being built. After delivery, the professional crews from Ideal “button up” your home and complete the finishing work to your specifications.

So how do you get started? The sales staff at Ideal Homes assists each home buyer with selecting from thousands of floorplans and custom designs to fit your wants and needs!
