If there are no pre existing restrictions i.e. CC&R's, zoning requirements, etc. a "Factory Built" home is acceptable throughout the State by law. There are two types of factory built homes:

Modular, meaning that the sections of the home are brought in on a low boy flat bed transport trailer and crane lifted or rolled onto a poured in place foundation and perimeter and interior footing system that accomodates the perimeter and interior payload requirements. A Modular is considered a site built home and must comply with all local building codes and ordidances.

A Manufactured Home (HUD) goes down the same assembly lines and is built exactly the same way as a modular with the exception that it is built on its own mainframe chassis and hauling components (axles and wheels). It is delivered to the site by a semi tractor calles a totter and is spotted on the site whence it is then set up on a HUD approved engineered mechanical foundation system and a skirting wall which is also load bearing capable.

We have been in the "Factory Built" houing industry for almost three decades and offer a one stop turn key solution from site selection, purchase of the lot, purchase of the home, site preperation, architectural, engineering, interior design, landscape (soft and Hard scape), permits, etc.

We can also provide lot purchase, construction and take out financing through the entire process. We are a local family owned and operated business and would be happy to assist you in making the entire process as painless as it could possibly be.
