For the quality and cost conscious home builder, modular home construction has become the construction method of choice. Not only are the highest quality modular homes as good as the so-called "stick-built" homes, they are in fact higher in quality and lower in cost. Indeed, the percentage of homes built from the ground up has decreased to only 12% of the current total in the United States.

The modern modular home construction takes advantage of many different factors. The most apparent of these are the ability to use the best materials, saved time and money, and utilizing only the best in state-of-the-art building technologies. The owner builder can take full advantage of all of these aspects without sacrificing any modern comforts.

The History of Modular Home Construction

Contrary to popular belief, the concept of made-to-order homes not a recent concept. Since the 1890's, manufacturers have offered industrialized homes, and began shipping them across America as soon as the railroad system began. Between 1908 and 1940, Sears sold 100,000 catalog homes through the mail!

After World War II, the combination of the production line and the concept of modular homes helped the baby boom generation solve the housing shortage that plagued America. After that, families relied on owner building packages to help them build their dream homes.
