Cape Cod Floor Plans
Modular Home Cape Cod Homes - Cape Cod homes provide the benefits of single floor living with second floor bonus space. Modular Cape Cod homes can be delivered to the site with or without the second floor being finished. Prefab Cape Cods floor plans can be formal or casual.

Modern Modular Homes - The Modernist movement has embraced modular construction to create contemporary homes through out the United States. Modern modular homes have open living spaces and smaller sleeping chambers. Architects and designers have taken advantage of using the efficiency of the modules to create homes with clean straight lines. Most modern prefab homes are modified from standard floor plans offered by architects and designer stock floor plans.
Multi Family Designs
and Floor Plans
Multi-Family Modular Home Floor Plans - Building a prefab multi family investment building include quicker build times, saving on construction financing, flexible floor plans and designs and less uncontrolled building costs found in "stick" built structures. Multi-family prefab units can be built as single story and two story duplex floor plans. Townhouse and condominium floor plans can designed to fit on the tightest building lots.
Commercial Modular Buildings - Modular construction systems are being used to build hotels, franchise restaurants, college dorms, class rooms; medical buildings, extended care homes, nursing homes, churches and other commercial structures. Prefab commercial modular structures are designed as per the intended use of the building. Large commercial projects require the use of an architect to design floor plans, coordinate colors and finishes. In addition an architect can help in designing floor plans that can be adapted for different uses in the future. In addition to building faster, prefabbed commercial structures are more energy efficient due to the exacting engineering and quality construction.
Custom Modular Home Floor Plans - In my time in the modular home industry, I have never sold a standard modular home floor plan. All of the modular homes I have been involved with have been custom floor plans and designs. True custom modular homes are designed by a home buyers, an architect or builder. Most custom modular homes are created by modifying a site built plan or standard modular home floor plan.

Modular Home Floor Plans and Considerations for Occupants
Selecting a floor plan for you new home can be a major undertaking. Most people start looking at the exterior of homes hoping the floor plan will have the same appeal as the exterior of the home. This is where floor plan selection can become frustrating. The home looks great from the outside, but the home doesn't have a functional layout for your family. The elements influencing your floor plan selection include: family size; building lot; life style requirements; potential to add on to the home in the future. In addition to these basic elements come personal requirements such as home offices, play rooms; media rooms and storage. Selecting a modular home floor plan should be the second step before looking at the exterior of homes.

Most modular homes are insulated with fiberglass batts. Fiberglass batts improperly installed in a modular home can be as little as 25% efficient if installed incorrectly. The solution to poorly installed fiberglass inspection includes having a thermal bypass inspection completed on your home while it is being constructed to make sure the insulation is installed correctly.
