An item on the Avalon Homes blog points out the fact that modular homes contain thirty percent more wood than site-built homes. Of all the wood homes produced, the company says modular homes are the strongest. Because they have to be built for transportation, additional measures are taken to stablize the structures including gluing and screwing the floors. A traditionally built home, the company claims, could not withstand being transported by crane.
