Modular Home Design Options


There are many homes for sale right now, but finding the perfect home for your family can be a challenge.  Rather than waiting for your dream home to go on the market, why not design it for yourself?  Modular homes allow consumers to customize almost every aspect of their house, choosing options and designs that will enhance their family’s lifestyle while staying within their budget.

If you have been house hunting for some time you know how difficult it can be to find a home that meets all of your criteria. Whether it is too few bedrooms, not enough storage space, or bathrooms that are too small, homebuyers may end up purchasing a home that is not exactly what they want.  The good news is that modular homes offer hundreds of floor plans and customizable options that allow families to design their perfect home.

Your modular home will look almost identical to traditional built homes.  However, unlike a traditional home, it will be completely customized to meet the needs of your family.  Your builder will work with you to design a home that will work for your entire family while staying within your budget.  Because there are so many floor plans and options available, there is a style and floor plan to suit every individual.

Selecting an appropriate foundation should be one of the first decisions you make.  Today’s modular homes can be built on many different types of foundations, including a slab, crawl space, or basement.  There are advantages and disadvantages to these different types of foundations.  Your budget may determine which option is best for you.

Another decision to be made is how many floors you want.  Modular homes are available in one-story, two-story, and even three-story models.  There are hundreds of floor plans to choose from as well as a vast range of choices for exterior treatments, customized interior features and accessories, flooring, cabinetry, kitchen and bath design, and much more.  Consumers are able to design every aspect of their home to make it personalized and customized for the specific needs of their family.  There are plenty of options available for every budget and style.

Specialty options like decks, porches, garages, and attics can be incorporated into your new modular home.  These items not only make your home more enjoyable and functional, they improve the overall value of the house.  These additions help consumers to individualize their house and make it as close as possible to their dream home.

You can be sure that the modular home you design will be built to last.  Tight quality control standards are maintained within the factory environment where your modular home is constructed.  Internal and third party inspectors are on hand to ensure that your new home will meet and exceed all federal, state, and local codes.  Constant inspection and supervision means you get the highest levels of workmanship available.

A quality modular homebuilder will work with you to design a home that will be both beautiful and functional.  He will guide you step by step through the design process so that you end up with the house you have always wanted.
