Starting from the ground up and proceeding through multiple work stations, your Cavco factory tour gives you a glimpse into the quality of workmanship in today’s manufactured homes. We will show you some of the major steps involved in your home’s construction. Let’s get started at the first work station, frame construction.
Though it doesn’t look like much at this stage, the frame must be constructed to bear the weight of the entire house for decades and in all kinds of climate conditions. Keep in mind that as your home is transported, the frame must be able endure all kinds adverse road and site conditions.
Once the frame is built and sprayed with a rust-resistant coating, the flooring, plumbing, and insulation can be added.
Below, we see the machine that builds the air conditioning floor ducts. If you’ve ever seen seamless gutters being built, you understand the process. Metal ducts are much harder for animals to penetrate than old-fashioned flexible ducts.
The next major assembly point takes us to walls and framing. You can see how the home is really taking shape.
Here you can see various phases of cabinet construction. Lots of components go into building kitchen and bathroom cabinets.
Moving on, we come to the roof truss assembly point. Our tour guide’s hand is on the large beam that helps provide structure and stability to the roof section.
Attachment of the Hardie fiber cement siding is shown below. This is a time-consuming procedure which must be done precisely. You can see the joint between the panels and each nail head are caulked. You can also see that the roof shingles have been installed.
One of the last steps in construction is attachment of interior fixtures. Notice that the this segment of the home is powered.
What you’ve seen here is a snapshot of a two-hour tour of the entire facility. Factory tours give you peace of mind showing you the quality craftsmanship that goes into your new manufactured home.
