Modular Building Goes Mainstream in Storm-Ravaged Areas

Modular houses are constructed at a factory and then delivered to the jobsite, where they are craned into place.

Workers secure the house to its foundation or pilings and add the porch.

For coastal communities, houses are placed on pilings as high as 9 feet off the ground to meet elevation requirements. Many homeowners choose to use this space for parking.

Modular houses are engineered to match the challenging sites and updated code requirements along the coastal areas affected by Hurricane Sandy.
