When it comes to off-site built housing, it's a pretty sure thing that  you’ve heard several terms thrown around but, what exactly do they mean? Aren’t all homes built in a facility the same? The short answer to that question is a definite no. Here is the breakdown to exactly why these homes are in a category of their own. So, let’s dive in!

When it comes to classifying a home, deciphering between the terms, visually, a manufactured and modular homes don’t appear that different, and both are often mistaken as site-built homes. But, prefabricated homes differ depending on the codes they follow.

That’s right, the code is the key! A prefabricated home, or "prefab home" as we like to call it is a term used to describe any building or dwelling that is manufactured off-site in a home building facility, and then transported to the home or building site.

Come on! Let's breakdown what exactly distinguishes a manufactured home and a modular home!
