What is a Manufactured Home?

Manufactured homes are assembled in a factory climate-controlled environment, attached to a permanent chassis on wheels to assure the initial and continued transportability of the home the wheels are then removed when setting on a foundation system. A multi-section manufactured home requires additional assembly on-site to be completed by certified installers.
Today’s manufactured housing is highly regulated by federal HUD guidelines and local building codes. With quality, durability, safety, and affordability of highest concern, a federal building code administered by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development has set regulations on everything from energy efficiency to fire resistance. Therefore, you can be confident a manufactured home purchased from Baird Homes is safe, well made, energy-efficient, and inspected!
What is a Modular Home?
A modular home is the closest alternative to site-built in the factory-built housing industry. Like manufactured homes, modular homes are constructed in a factory, but differ by regulation and must comply with all local, state, and regional building codes.
A completed modular is transported to the building site, unattached then lifted off the transport carrier with a crane and placed on a previously inspected and approved permanent foundation system. Once the home is sat, finishing touches such as final ductwork and plumbing are completed by licensed sub-contractors. They are then inspected to ensure all construction adheres to state regulations with all work completed up to standard.
They are an affordable way to create your ultimate dream home!
