The two common types of factory-built Housing/buildings
Manufactured (Mobile) homes are factory-built home and can be up to 95% completed when leaving the factory. The homes are typically built with an integrated sub-frame that allows them to be transported to site using axles or bogeys and placed on surface foundation systems. These homes are typically built in one to three large sections up to 20’ in width and 76’ in length, and can be ready for occupancy in as little as one day after delivery to the home-site. These homes are highly cost-effective and represent Canada’s most affordable single detached housing option.
Modular homes/buildings are factory-built to comply with building code requirements applicable to the area where the house /building will be sited. The homes/buildings are typically produced and shipped to the building site in one or more large sections. These homes/buildings are up to 85% completed in the factory and generally require only 2 to 3 weeks of finish work at the building site to be made ready for occupancy.
