Different Types of Modular Homes to Consider Before You Build

Imagine what it must be like to get your entire home constructed in under a week.  Modular homes are absolutely glorious for exactly this reason.  These are the only types of homes that can be constructed on your property basically overnight because the major design and structure is already in place well before the home is erected on your property.  But what are truly mesmerizing about these homes are their gorgeous designs.  One would think that these takeaway style homes would lack in quality but they are in fact surprisingly strong, modern and cozy.  Modular homes also vary a lot in terms of design and in terms of type.  If you are in need of a home quickly then you can definitely consider the following modular home types:

Different Types of Modular Homes to Consider Before You Build

Timber frame homes

Timber Frame Homes can be constructed two different ways. They can be constructed traditionally on your property or they can be constructed modular style and will then simply be assembled on your property.  These types of homes are some of the most ecofriendly homes that you can consider and they are absolutely glorious since the natural wood boosts a feeling of quality and elegance while the natural wood also improves overall energy efficiency since wood is much warmer.

Pre-fab homes

Pre-fab homes include several types of buildings but are mostly homes that are prefabricated off site and usually include materials like a steel structure and paneling for walls.  These types of homes don’t have the durability of brick and mortar homes but they are a terrific solution for those that need a quick home solution and for those that want a mobile home solution.  Pre-fab homes are available in a great variety of sizes and styles and some of the modern pre-fab homes are absolutely glorious.

Panel built homes

These homes are made of structural insulated panels (SIPs) and are some of the quickest home types to build since the panels are so easy to install.  Building these homes are also often a lot more affordable and require low labor forces since the panels are quite lightweight and easy to install.  The only downside to these types of dwellings is their steel outer finish which might not be appealing to everyone.  The steel finish does however work quite well if you want to incorporate a futuristic vibe in your home.

Upcycled homes

Upcycled homes or recycled homes can differentiate a lot.  This method of home building involves modifying or transforming other objects into homes.  The possibilities are endless for these types of homes although space is usually an issue. Container homes are a huge example of this type of modular home. A container or bunch of containers are cut up, combines, altered, painted and remodeled into a home.  Another commonly used home upcycle involves transforming an old school bus into a mini home.  There are also plenty of people that transform old sheds or barns into gorgeous farm styled homes and some that transform minivans into mobile homes.  The main ingredient for creating an upcycled home is imagination.
