Today's Factory Built Housing Projects

Gone are the days of the "Singlewide", "Doublewide", trailer talk. "Today's Factory Built Housing" is here to stay. Be they Manufactured, Modular, PreFab, Component stacked et. al. it's a whole new ball game. I had a rather challanging, eventful and even fun-filled experience with many AR members this past year regarding the differences between site (stick) built and "Factory Built" housing so I have decided to make it my mission in '10 to educate as best I can our intimate little community. 

This is the first of many articles I intend to share with the AR community about my career and experiences in this facinating and ever growing industry. Every unit is equipped with all the creature comforts and amminities you could ever hope to have in site built construction and more.

 

This is a crane set 200 unit apartment complex comprised of 800 plus modular components built in a factory, transported by lowboy truck and trailer and crane set in a 2 story stacked 200 unit apartment project in Visailia, CA

 

This apartment complex has all the creature comforts and more that you could ever hope for in any type of site built construction. Try double walls, ceiling and floors for openers. Inasmuch as every module is a seperate structure unto itself the 2x6 double exterior walls provide the ultimate in sound proofing and structural stability.

My next post will take a look at what many "Brand Name" mid-sized hotels and motels are doing with multi-story (stacked) factory built structures. You won't believe it.

I agree that modular homes can be boxy looking but I have seen many that are not so..I have even looked at some that put stick built homes to shame.

You're spot on Jackie. With a good architect you can literally do anything you want in a factory nowadays. In fact you've inspired fodder for a future post. Thanks.

With reference to Calif EQ's. Manufactured Homes are the safest place to be because the roofs are truss systems and rarely fail and they can only fall so far to the ground. You don't have worry about being crushed to death. I'd take a MH anytime over a site built home having done disaster response work after several EQ's over the years.

Hurricanes? You could end up in a tree about 60 to 80 feet in the air, have your roof blown off and the entire home destroyed. Believe me after spending a year in Florida after Hurricane Charley and his buddies visited Florida in 2004 I might have my reservations about Mfg Homes myself.
