Construction Podcast 39: Benefits of modular building
Modular housing is gaining ground with remodelers and builders nationwide. Chip Lofton, owner of Cardinal Homes, a modular homebuilder, explains the features and benefits of modular building for contractors and homeowners. Modular houses and additions are built in a factory to exacting specifications. The homes are delivered to the jobsite and are erected quickly.
