That thought had never come to mind before today reading this post. 

Is San Jose remotely close to San Diego?

 I toured a plant in south Georgia.  They had several buildings the size of airport hangars; the houses were assembled inside those buildings.  Very impressive operation!

I stopped wondering a long time ago after my first factory visit when their construction was suspect. No more doubts they're here to stay and I like them.

I would venture to guess the standards required are pretty high with regulations.  Not seen a home built except for mobiles.  My husband worked for a company that built high end mobiles and they were built really well.

To be honest, no.  When I've seen them trucked down the highway, I just always assumed they were built in a factory, like a car or airplane, etc.  Once built they were shipped out, any connections of pieces to each other were done and then hooked up to utilities.

I got a lesson on this recently when we had an issues with a modular home that a buyer was purchasing.

Come to find out - the quality is actually better as they are built in conditioned space with incredibly tight quality control. Just having the wood not be exposed to the elements during the building process eliminates a lot of issues in & of itself.
