The modular home was a popular form of housing in the 1950s and 1960s, but the costs and the design constraints of such homes proved to be too often obstacles that prevented widespread adoption. Restoring modular homes to their former glory, and rehabilitating these homes to make them more appealing to buyers, has become a popular endeavor, but it can be challenging.
New modular housing was introduced to meet the housing needs of new Canadians in the 1960s, but since then, the industry has expanded and found many more ways to design, build, and market these homes. Modular homes are not just new housing — they are also new communities.
The modular home bugaboo received a lot of media attention in the early 2000s. The modular homes seen in the media are like modular cars – their external appearance disguises their inner structure – and actually prove to be quite complicated. In many ways, modular houses resemble prefabricated housing (see below), but prefabricated housing is not modular.
The modular home movement is a beautiful concept that has the potential to transform the housing industry. A modular home is great because it is the most flexible, adaptable building option available to today’s homeowners. The technology has even changed the way consumers think about their home. The first modular homes were build in the 1960s by companies like Ray Industries, but the movement has evolved greatly since then.

The modular home is also great because of its flexibility. A modular home can be built in the backyard of your house or in a factory. It can be a new home on your lot or a second home at your vacation rental. The flexibility of modular construction helps homeowners build exactly what they want, when they want it.
I was one of the first people to become interested in modular housing. I’ve been tinkering with modular home designs and layouts over the years, and found that certain configurations were better at certain situations and certain times of year.
Introduction : The Beginning of the Modular Home Movement and the Impact It Has Had on Housing Design
It’s a lot like modular cars in the sense that it involves heavy machinery and it’s difficult to see what is going on inside. However, modular homes are built on a foundation of steel. They are not built on a special foundation like this one but on a slab poured on top of a deep, hard-wearing layer of gravel specifically for the purpose of supporting the home’s foundation. The foundation is basically an engineered slab made of concrete that is poured into the form created by the modular home frame.
