Types of Prefab Homes There are three types of modern prefab homes:
Modular prefabricated homes are built in a climate-controlled environment in modules or sections and later transported to the site for installation. Here they are permanently installed by professional installers. The advantages of modular homes are:
They can reduce the time of construction by over 35% and you can get into your new home faster. While site-built homes take weeks to finish, modular homes only take about a week to put together.
Modular homes are very economical when compared to other types. Because there is no cost of interim financing of construction, modular construction can be completed in lesser cost than on-site construction. Modular homes offer excellent value for money.

The mobile home is a prefabricated home built on chassis built in a factory. Mobile homes also called trailers are built on wheels and can be pulled by another vehicle. They are used on holidays and as temporary accommodation.
Module Mounting Structure
Module mounting structures key to the effective working of solar power plants. An EPC contractor is responsible for proper module mounting structure management.Some projects have adopted a combination of steel and aluminum as well for the mounting structures. The components of module mounting structures are:
- Vertical posts and rails
- Horizontal rails
- Mounting clips
- Tilt bracket
- Cable tray
The selection of the module mounting structure depends on site conditions like weather, rainfall, wind, and temperature. The design of the structure must last the entire lifetime of the solar project which is typically about 25 years.
