Yes, a modular home is a traditional stick built home……………

A modular home uses conventional stick framing and must satisfy the same building codes as a site-built home, and holds its value about as well. (Don’t confuse it with a mobile home, which is a depreciating asset built on a steel chassis that falls under the Federal HUD building code.) Modules are built in a factory and finished on the inside. They’re trucked to the site and set in place with a crane. The local builder knits them together and adds finishing touches, like decks.

Although you’ve probably seen a modular home – usually two halves of a simple box – rolling down the highway, they’re not the whole story. Modulars come in all quality levels and price points, and some manufacturers combine custom-built modules in different ways to create complex designs, that include cathedral ceilings and other popular architectural features.
