Customers ask us every day,

 "Where does Palm Harbor build it's Modular Homes? and What is the Difference between Modular and Manufactured homes?"

1. Palm Harbor builds it's Modular homes at 830 Bastrop Hwy Austin Texas 78741. We do factory tours and have factory direct pricing.

2. The difference is that these two types of home construction are actually built to 2 different building codes. Modular homes are built to the local State or county building codes - the same codes used for traditional, site-built homes and inspections in the field.  However, Manufactured homes are built to a Federal HUD (Housing and Urban Development) Building code. These homes are inspected in the factory to insure that they meet this rigorous Federal construction code before they are ever allowed to be delivered to your home site.

Palm Harbor Homes builds thousands of modular and manufactured homes every year!  In fact, we even build modular construction for commercial use in things like dormitories, hotels and even army barracks at Ft.  Hood.  These were all built to Modular standards and inspected in the field.

Did you know that we have homes in downtown Austin on 6th street? And on Lake Travis? Here are a few more reasons to consider Palm Harbor for your construction needs.

  1. We build in a controlled environment. (No on site weather contamination or materials loss or theft.)
  2. We have controlled seasoned labor. (No waiting on that sub contractor holding up the job)
  3. We have limited waste due to conservation efforts in our building centers (less than half the waste of on-site builders and good for the environment - reduces landfills)
  4. We save TIME, and time is your money. We can build and finish a home on your Ranch. (On site builders are COSTLY in this arena)
  5. We can provide an "On Your Site" personal construction manager.

Plus much, much more! Click here to visit our Gallery of Home photos. Then give us a call to take a factory tour with us.  Then we can personalize your own home quote - YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID!
