Modular vs Manufactured Homes

While many people will use modular and manufactured interchangeably, there are differences between the two.

A modular home, often called factory-built, system-built or prefab (prefabricated), is a home that is built off-site and placed on a permanent foundation once it is brought on site.

A manufactured home is also built off-site, but is not placed on a permanent foundation when it is brought to the site.
