Modular-built homes: Eagle Homes, Family business and Community minded, homes built in Penticton BC
Modular-built homes are produced in a factory as three-dimensional modules that may be combined on-site to make level entry or basement homes. Typically, a bungalow will
consist of one or two modules, The homes are typically set on full-perimeter foundations—a crawl space or full basement—but may also be placed on surface-mount foundations.
Insulation, air/vapour barrier, plumbing, wiring, exterior siding and other construction details are largely completed in the factory. Interior work is usually well
advanced, including drywall, trim, flooring, cabinets and bathroom fixtures. Finishing the home on-site generally takes a couple of weeks, sometimes more, depending
on the size, style and features of the home. Some features are best done on-site, such as siding and some types of flooring.
In BC, modular-built homes are built to the BC building code under the CSA A277 standard. This standard requires the manufacturing plant to be certified by a third party
inspection agency to ensure that the plant has the knowledge and experience to build homes to the respective provincial and local building codes.
