The idea of a floating factory is intriguing. We did do finish work, including siding on-site— our preference. Most of us did our own kitchen appliances and cabinets: various of us found better deals on better cabinets either used or from a place that sold cabinet orders that went awry one way or another. Some had factory installed appliances and kitchen/bath cabinets. We did not have problems with the modular folks, as I recall, tho adjacent homes sharing a wall had too much sound transmission. PS: I have an intermittent e-mail glitch. If you write and do not hear back from me shortly, please call me or please re-send. Thank you.
