How your home is transported and installed

The term, ‘factory built home’ initially may not inspire feelings of confidence, when you are shopping for builders, but we promise that the more you understand the process, the more you will appreciate how excellent a choice it actually is. There are a variety of benefits to this building method, which we will outline. These, and the Manor Homes’ seven step process makes the road to your dream home, simple, swift and clear.

What is modular construction?

A modular construction is made in separate modules that are then put together to create a complete house. The modules are constructed in a factory setting and then assembled on a prepared site.

Modular homes are not to be confused with kit homes. Kit homes do come in parts but that is where the similarities end. They do not always come complete and are built entirely on the site. Another downside to kit homes is that some banks will not approve a loan for this type of house.

The main comparison to a traditional build is that a factory built home can be built at the same time as the site is prepared. This obviously saves plenty of time and assists people in getting into their homes more quickly.


Our prefabricated homes are constructed in a factory setting for the majority of the build. Therefore, the build is not delayed by weather, or other external factors. This means that we guarantee that your home will be made in as short a time frame as 12 weeks. This is a mere fraction of the time in comparison to traditional builds, which can take up to 12 months.

Fixed cost, no surprises

Similarly, because the build time is set, it is much easier to give a set price. Consequently, there are no surprises for you, the customer. For anyone who has built a home before, they will know that new costs seem to come up as the build continues. This is not the case with a modular build, which offers peace of mind, especially for those on a limited budget.

High quality

Due to the homes being built in a factory, the materials used for construction are shielded from the outdoor elements. We already choose high quality materials and the greater quality control of the setting ensures the standard is retained right up until assembly. We are also an Australian owned and operated company.
