What is a Modular home?

A modular home is built as components (modules) by a factory and transported by truck or boat to their new location and assembled onto the foundation. Other than this, there is not much difference from a site built home, or with what can be achieved with site building. Modular homes are generally not intended to be moved again (though it is possible in some cases).

Nearly all of the construction, electrical, plumbing, and finishing happens inside a factory, where quality, reliability, and consistency are easier to control than at a site.

All of our homes are certified to at least CSA A277 standards, and adhere to all applicable B.C. building codes.

CIP Modular has decades of experience transporting and installing modular buildings, and operates its own fleet of trucks and service vehicles. From boat-access-only islands, to busy cities, CIP can deliver your home wherever you need it.

What isn’t a Modular home?

A modular home is not a mobile home or trailer. It doesn’t have wheels, or a metal frame. Once set, a modular home (usually) doesn’t move again, whereas mobile homes, park models, fifth wheel trailers, etc,  are designed to be relocated as needed.

Our Modular homes don’t look or feel “temporary” – they are designed and built to endure as long as a site  built home.
