When you picture a house being built, you likely see a bunch of guys swarming over a slab foundation in the middle of a muddy plot of unfinished land. They frame the house, raise trusses for the roof, form the exterior with plywood, shingles and siding, then move inside for the Sheetrock, flooring and final touches.
The process can take months and cost a fortune, and, during a good portion of it, the home is exposed to the elements, leading to potentially costly damage.
But there’s another option. Thankfully, questions like “how are manufactured homes built?” prompt a more secure picture.
