Modular homes are prefabricated buildings that are constructed in multiple sections called modules. Modules are built in a factory, transported to sites of use using transport trucks and moved into place using cranes. Modular homes are different than mobile homes. Mobile homes have their own axles and may be transported whole. Modular homes generally must conform to local building codes. Mobile homes are required to meet codes set out by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, reports Wikipedia.
