IBS Modular Homes
Cape Cod Floor Plans
Cape Cods can be cute and functional or large and extravagant. I sold a modular Cape Cod that was to be used as an in-law suite addition. The exterior dimensions of this modular home was 28 x60 feet for the father in law. The home buyers of this floor plan eliminated the stairs to the second floor and installed pull down stairs to access the living space above. The joy of a modular home cape cod floor plan allows home owners the opportunity to add low cost living space to the second floor.
The Cape Cod floor plans on Modular Home Place can all be customized. Most people include dormers to add light and living space to the second floor plan and create a cottage look curb appeal. Most modular homes are designed with agreeable windows on the gable ends to meet minimum building code for living space to be installed on the second floor.

Modular Cape Cods
Cape Cods have 12/12 roof pitches and living space on the second floor. The original Cape Cods originated in the New England states were plain and symmetrical. The homes only had a front stoop as an entry. Todays modular cape cods are primarily double wide modular homes. They offer a multitude of exterior finishes. The cape shown on the left has a wrap around porch with two "A" dormers. The wrap around porch on this modular home completely changes the appearance of the home from boxy but good.
In addition to the wrap around porch, the cape above has oversized windows to allow additional natural light into the home to compensate for heavy shading.
Prefabricated Modular Cottage Financing
Financing a modular home is similar to financing a site built home. Modular homes are much easier to finance than double wide manufactured homes. Double wide modular homes are built to the same state and local building codes as a stick built home. The major difference between financing a modular home and a stick built home is the draw schedule. Before securing financing, alway ask your bank what is the draw schedule is for your new modular home.

Double Wide Trailer Homes
In some parts of the country modular homes are considered incorrectly as double wides or trailer homes. Although a modular Cape Cods are delivered in two sections, they are not double wide trailer homes. Modular Homes are built to the IRC building code and double wides, manufactured homes are built to HUD code.
