Some people may have reservations about building a modular home because of the stigma that they all look the same. In this article, we prove this to be false. Custom modular homes have many benefits, and their strengths especially lie in how they can match your style and needs.
While modular homes are prefabricated and built offsite, this does not mean that they are exactly the same as the one that came before it. Even without looking at prefabricated homes, it is clear that there are a variety of designs available for you.
There is always something to meet each person’s needs – with different sizes, shapes and stories, there is a prefab modular home available for you.
If a pre-designed home does not seem appealing, you should consider customisation, which truly gives you the opportunity to create your dream modular home.
Your Own Plan
If you have your own plan in mind, it is possible to discuss this plan your modular home manufacturer and see if they would be able to create a flat suited to your needs.
Customising a Pre-Made Plan
If there is a modular home plan that appeals to you, but you would like to make slight adjustments to it – that is also possible. Customising a premade plan, such as changing the roof or shapes of certain rooms, is a definite possibility.
If there are elements of several plans that appeal to you, combining them is also an option, offering an easy opportunity to customise your modular home.
If the interior of a modular home appeals to you but the exterior feels lacking, it is possible to customise a modular home so that the outer appearance is more in line with what you are looking for. This may involve changing the types of trimmings and finishes used.
If you are interested, it is also possible to add outer decorations to your home. These finishes may involve Victorian arches, stepped roofs, roof overhangs and gables. With finishes such as these, the house will truly meet your needs.
Porches and Garages
One of the easiest ways you can customise your modular home is through making changes to the porch and garage – both of which are generally built on site anyway.
Another strength of a customised modular home is that it can be adapted to meet the accessibility needs of the builder. For example, if there is a need for wheelchair ramps, larger doors or wider hallways, they can be easily interpreted into the modular home’s design.
