The reasons behind luxury modular homes becoming popular is the simplicity of the construction process, low costs incurred on such homes, and other factors like durability, ability to survive adverse and harsh weather, etc.
What is a Modular Home?
The modular homes are a good alternative to the traditional homes, and they save cost, time, waste generation, etc. The modular homes are assembled from parts or units known as modules. The modules are prefabricated sections that are transported from one place to another, and thus it eases the process of building a house. Earlier, people didn’t show much interest in building modular homes, since their quality was not up to the mark. Nowadays, modular homes show great variety and additional features in their construction. Modular home construction utilizes materials that are strong and remain unaffected by weather changes while building them.
Luxury Designer Homes
The modular homes have changed with time and one can add luxury features and designs in the structure of these houses. The basic structure or framework of these luxury homes remains the same, however, variations in designs implemented by architects and other accessories prove to be the distinguishing features of such homes. The techniques used for constructing modular homes and the material used in the process give them an edge over other types of homes.
The process of constructing modular homes takes less time as compared to the conventional ones. The average time required to build such homes is around 12 months. Most of the construction/assembly work is contracted to third parties. Bad weather is not the limiting factor in building modular homes. These homes could also be made strong enough to resist harsh weather and even hurricanes. One such home built in Hubert, NC is a perfect example of versatility and durability. This luxury house built by ‘Handcrafted Homes’, Henderson, NC, can resist wind speeds up to 130 mph. The various luxury features included in this house are an elevator, Hardie plank sliding, glazed kitchen cabinetry, etc.
The Computer Aided Design (CAD) software available in the market allows the customers to create custom designs for their future homes. It eases the work of manufacturers, since the specifications provided by customers helps in planning their work. The features like skylights, whirlpool tubs, vacuum cleaning, bay and bow windows, etc. could be included in the construction of these homes.
There is a lot of scope to embellish and decorate these luxury homes. One can decorate modular houses with hardwood floors, granite-topped kitchen tops and many such things. The homes could be scaled up to big sizes and the spacious 4000 sq. ft houses are a nice example of such grand homes. The modular homes are far different from mobile homes, which emphasize more on the factor of portability. The modular homes on the other hand make the task of construction easier by assembling the components.
Luxury modular homes are thus a nice option in comparison to the costly conventional homes which not incur higher costs on the part of customers, but also consume a lot of our time.
