Modular Homes and Manufactured Homes

Modular home, manufactured home and mobile home are often used interchangeably to describe a home that is not site-built. Whichever term you use, you’re guaranteed a quality home when buying from Clayton Homes in Boise, Idaho. Clayton Homes represent the best of today’s home building systems and all our homes are built in factory-like settings. However, you might still wonder what the difference between a manufactured home, a modular home and a mobile home is and which you should choose.

What is a Manufactured Home?

Manufactured homes can be very similar in appearance to modular homes. The main difference is the code the home is built to. Manufactured homes are built to conform to the same federal code, no matter where they will be delivered. A manufactured home is built on a permanent chassis to ensure transportability. However, it is typically not moved from its initial installed site.

What is a Modular Home?

A modular home is transported to the construction site as finished “modules” for final assembly on the foundation and cannot be transported once placed on the land. It conforms to the building codes that are required at the specific location it will be delivered to. This type of home is the fastest growing segment in the home building industry.

What is a Mobile Home?

All our homes are best suited for permanent foundations and are not considered as being mobile. By definition, a mobile home is a home built before June 15, 1976.
