A modular home is built to the same codes as a site built home. And because they must be transported to the home site, they are typically a much stronger home than site built homes.

Palm Harbor builds manufactured and modular homes in environmentally protected building centers featuring strict quality controls, minimal material waste and unbelievable efficiency. As a result, our customers receive strong, energy-efficient homes delivered in less time and for less money than comparable site built homes.
What is a Modular Home?
Modular homes are the fastest-growing segment of the home building industry. A modular home is simply a home built to local building codes in a controlled, environmentally protected building center using precise and efficient construction technology. They are built to the same codes as a site built home. And because they must be transported to the home site, modular homes are much stronger than site built homes.Click here to see a 2-minute video of a Palm Harbor modular home setup.

Other Important Considerations.
- Is Modular Right For You?
When shopping for a new home, make sure to consider the advantages of modular construction. These homes are built in environmentally protected building centers and transported to the home site. As a result, they are much stronger than comparable site built homes. Palm Harbor's efficient building process provides strict quality control, faster building cycles and less material waste during the building process. The result is a 15-20% savings over comparable site-built homes. Not only do you own a stronger, more energy efficient home. You also save money.
- Choosing the Right Construction Method for Your Home.
When deciding between a modular or manufactured home, it is important to understand the differences between the two. Modular homes allow for more architectural design freedom. Because they are built to local codes, modular home placement is typically less restricted. Using this construction method can also provide the opportunity for higher appraisals.
