Here is a great topic to start out with at Round Table.
Here are a couple of paragraphs from a Fort Myers, FL newspaper article that should concern not only our fellow southern modular home builders but you as well as this type of thinking could spread.
"My fear is modular homes are getting a break on building codes. What amazes me is why you would put those up for $117 a square foot?" one resident said. "You could put up a real house up for that. These things are designed to be put on a truck. We need to tear apart one of these houses.
"They just don't seem to fit. This committee is not addressing that these are modular homes, but they don't seem to look right," Bashaw said, adding that the e-mails he has gotten express concern this housing option will reduce property values, that they're "low-income housing," and aren't what you would expect in Cape Coral.
Bashaw educated residents about modular homes, and said there are such homes that are built to exacting standards and look as beautiful as a site-built home.
Misinformation can get out there faster than ever thanks to social media. My God, over 30% of Twitter fans think Judge Judy is on the US Supreme Court. That's how little people actually seek the truth.
