After move-in were there lots of corrections/fixes? 

Our new construction did — plumbing, electrical, concrete sealing, etc. We are 
still discovering things.

Were the modular homes really ready to move in once attached to utilities?

Modular home companies are doing very interesting things — like shipping flat 
to be assembled by local contractors complete with appliances, surface 
finishing, etc. Fabulous Factories if this is still available in your area or 
in your library has an episode on a factory that floats and can be moved to the 
area where the homes are to be built. Easier to move the factory than ship the 
completed houses.
