The standard widths for modular homes include: 12 , 14 and 16 feet wide. The exact dimensions will vary from modular home factory to factory. Some modular home factories also build 13 foot wide modules. Modular homes that are 24 and 26 wide have fixed overhangs and are ready for gutters and down spouts to be installed. Homes that are 14 and 16 foot wide will require flipped overhangs and additional site work.
The length of modules for modular homes will vary from factory to factory across the United States. Most factories have capacity to build modular homes that are sixty feet long. If you require a home that is longer, additional modules can be installed to make your modular home as long as you want.
Modular home ceilings are usually finished flat ceilings. As for the styles of ceilings for modular homes there are ceiling height option: eight, eight and a half and nine foot tall. As for the styles there are cathedral and vaulted ceilings. Vaulted ceilings in modular homes provide a sloped ceiling. The slope of a vaulted ceiling is usually less steep than the exterior. For example: the true roof pitch for the exterior is a 7/12 and the interior ceiling is a 5/12. Vaulted ceilings are mostly finished and require nominal on site finish. Cathedral ceilings provide a full vault where the ceiling line follows the roof line. Cathedral ceilings require installing rafter baffles, electrical fixtures, air sealing, insulation and dry wall.
The best way to finish a modular home cathedral ceiling is to have the factory install rafter baffles and then spray foam the rafter baffles into place with one inch of closed cell spray foam. This will provide an one and a half inches of ventilation to maintain shingle warranties and an air tight fit minimizing air leakage and energy loss in modular home cathedral ceilings.
