are buildings that are manufactured off-site in advance of a build, sometimes as a whole but usually in sections or modules that can easily be shipped and assembled. The particular methods of prefab housing lends itself to both traditional and ultra modern designs so a buyer can usually find what they are looking for.
Prefabricated buildings are built under guidelines but the rules and regulations are not as strict or long winded as conventional construction.

Modular refers to a method of building a home, rather than a type of home. A modular home can be built in a factory from a stock modular home plan or from a customized plan, to the state, local or regional codes of where the home will be set up. Modular homes have not typically experienced the zoning restrictions and discriminative ordinances applicable to manufactured and mobile homes.
