HI,

We are considering building a modular home, but the responses we'ver received from local reps has been , well lets say, less than stelar. Any source for getting info on the quality of these types of homes other than interested parties. ANy one live in one?

How can you verify that you get what you pay for, when all the walls are done?

Hi corwyn HI,

No, I don't live in one. What you might want to do is talk to an INDEPENDENT Modular Home 'Builder'. (The folks that put them 'together' so to speak.) If you're talking to Salesmen, they'll only tell you how great THEIR homes are and why you should stay away from the 'competition'. By talking to an INDEPENDENT Builder, you can get some good info. Also, talk to your local Inspector. They may have some good info for you.

Other than that, stay tuned on the Forum for other feedback. My best to ya and hope this helps.
