Library Journal
Although often beautiful, modular houses take only a few weeks to build, calling into question issues of quality and resilience. But according to Gianino (president of the Home Store, the largest dealer of modular homes in the Northeast), building such houses is hotter than ever for a number or reasons (e.g., their tight construction improves energy efficiency). If you are thinking of "going modular," this could be your primer: it covers all the steps of the process and features a 16-page color insert that helps you visualize the possibilities.

This book is great. It takes you through the process of buying and building a home in great - yet comprehensive - detail. It's really given us everything we need to buy a house. The only way it could be better would be to include a review of the major house manufacturers, or at least a glossary that directs the reader to this kind of information. Overall, a great book.
