Home Types

Modular

Modular homes are built to the standard and specifications of the Ohio Basic Building Code (O.B.B.C.) The floor joists and side walls are supported by either basement or crawl space walls. If you look up at the underside of a modular home you will see the wooden floor joists and steel jack posts, just like a site built home. A modular home has no steel frame unit and is transported on a reusable carrier. Modular homes come in various models, such as ranch, cape cod, and two story homes. They have finished drywall on all interior walls and offer a variety of roof pitches.  A modular home has no title and is considered and taxed as real estate.

Double Wide

Manufactured homes are built to standards and specifications of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (H.U.D). They are built on a steel chassis for transportation that is also permanent support for the home. Due to the steel framework, these homes are NOT typically set on a basement or crawl space (there are some exceptions).  Most double wide homes are set on piers or a concrete slab foundation with skirting around them. Manufactured homes usually come in ranch style and typically have a lower roof pitch than modular homes. Manufactured homes leave the factory classified as a vehicle and thereby DO have a title. If the home is placed on a permanent foundation, the title can be converted to real estate, and the home will be taxed as real estate, instead of as a mobile home. When looking under a manufactured home, there will always be a network of steel framing that supports the home.

Single Wide

Manufactured homes are built to standards and specifications of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (H.U.D). They are built on a steel chassis for transportation that is also permanent support for the home. Due to the steel framework, single wide homes are NOT usually set on a basement or crawl space.  They are set on piers or a concrete slab foundation with skirting around them. Manufactured homes usually come in ranch style and typically have a lower roof pitch than modular homes. Manufactured homes leave the factory classified as a vehicle and thereby DO have a title.

Cabin

Cabins are panelized homes and are a mix of factory building and site building. The walls and framing are all constructed in a factory and then pieced together on site allowing construction to be much faster and more efficient. This also allows your home to be customized in just about any way you like. The cabin is built just as a shell, its not a finished product like the manufactured  homes or modulars.  The interior will need to be finished just like any custom site built home.
