Modular home manufacturers near TN

We used Design Homes in WI for our current home and absolutely love it. Will be moving to TN and want something of equal style and excellence. I absolutely do not want a manufactured home. It has to be modular (stick-built)

Modular homes are not "stick built." That term refers to a home built onsite using regular construction techniques.

Modular homes are stick-built according to FHA and home building standards. Manufactured homes are not. Mortgages are as easy to get with a modular home as they are with a on-site built home. That is why they go up in value the same as on-site homes.

(In fact, one can't tell the difference since they are constructed the with the same materials and techniques

There is a difference between "stick built" which modulars are, and "site built" which is the normal 6 to 8 month construction.

After modulars are placed on the foundation, they are in every way the same as a site built home. And the final cost is pretty much the same as site built.

AND a huge advantage is that you don't have the settling and cracks in a modular home that you have in a site-built home.

We have owned many site-built and two modulars over the past 60 years and the modulars are much nicer IMHO. The only manufactured types we have owned were motor homes and 5th wheels. I do realize those tend to degrade faster than a home since they are moving a lot but they sure do degrade fast.
