Magnificently Built Modular Homes
The home construction market is picking up. With people trying to decide what type of home to build, the question of the differences between modular construction and stick built construction arises. To make a well informed decision you need to know the difference.
Stick Built Construction is the traditional way to build a home. In steps, foundation, framing, walls, electrical, plaster, etc. Stick built homes are built on site, from the ground up on the building lot, your property. So any home built entirely on site is a stick built home.
Modular Construction is an easier, faster and more economical way to build a home, through modules. Modular homes ARE stick built homes, they are just built in a factory first. This is the fastest growing and most advanced style of home construction.
The modules are built in a factory, and then transported to the construction site where they are assembled. What are modules? Picture a traditional 2 story colonial home. The first floor is built in halves and the second story is built in halves. When completed they look like fully constructed pieces of the home. Once they arrive on site they are stacked, like blocks and then “buttoned up” or fastened together.
Modular floor plans can be custom designed. Then the plans are sent to the factory for construction. The home can be made out of as many modules as necessary.
