Hey Joani, Here at Catoctin Creek Village (Taylorstown, VA), we are building detached homes using the modular construction method. We've been very happy with them. The biggest advantage is that they are quick. Much faster than stick-built. Also, no chance of weather delaying the project, or soaking a floor. Structually, the houses are stronger than stick-built. The one draw-back is that you can't make any last minute changes. You can't walk through your half-build home and ask for walls to be moved. Of course, some would say that's an advantage, given the amount of money some people spend on last-minute change orders to their house. We liked Avis America in Avis, PA. Their quality was very high, they will customize, and they have energy efficient upgrades available. -Kevin Oliveau In a message dated 6/30/2005 12:26:27 AM Eastern Standard Time, joani [at] swansway.com writes: Modular/manufactured houses/units in cohousing? Cambridge Cohousing used a bunch, and Metro Cohousing in St. Louis will be using them too. Anyone else that I don't happen to know about yet? And let's hear from those who have used them about the pros and cons, and perhaps which manufacturers you chose and why. Joani
