Looking for Manufactured Chalet Homes? Manufactured homes are generally built in three standard sizes, single wide, double wide and triple wide and is also know as a trailer. Modular homes on the other hand are built to conform to all state, local and/or regional codes that apply based on the final location of the home, just like site-built homes also know as stick built homes. Kintner modular homes are typically built in two sections, however, depending on the size and design of your custom modular home, it could be built in up to five sections. The modular home sections are then transported to your final location where they are joined together on your permanent foundation by Kintner Modular Contractor. If an inspection is required, once the home is completely constructed at your site local building inspectors complete the required inspection of the home. Manufactured Chalet Homes on the other hand is placed on blocks or metal piers, skirting can be added to customize the home to your liking. Manufactured Chalet Homes don’t need to conform to all state, local and/or regional codes that apply based on the final location of the home, just like site-built homes also know as stick built homes.
Modular vs Manufactured Homes
Modular and manufactured home are not the same. Modular homes have permanent foundations that your home is constructed onto using modular construction. Manufactured homes, sometimes referred to as (but are not always) mobile homes, can be moved from one location to another. There are specific laws and regulations regarding these relocation’s. Manufactured homes are called mobile homes or trailers. The difference between Modular vs Manufactured Homes is that a manufactured home can be more easily and transported as-is to a new location if the owner wishes to relocate it. Modular homes are constructed in factories and then transported in parts (or modules) to the building site. The construction of a modular home is generally considered indistinguishable from homes built on site sometimes called stick built homes.
