It’s been said that the only constant in life is change itself. Democrats give way to Republicans; hoverboards give way to Hatchables; the iPhone 6 gives way to the Note 7, which explodes and then ultimately paves the way for an iPhone 8. Even housing trends—a category in which changes were once so glacial they were barely perceptible to the naked eye—are now undergoing profound and rapid transformation too. As real estate markets across the nation continue their unprecedented boom, the form and function of homes and living styles are changing rapidly to meet the new realities of American life. Small is the new big. Modular is the new custom-built. Three-dimensional printers are the new homebuilders....

The AC Hotel is rising quickly in Bricktown, as promised, with dozens of prefabricated hotel rooms being lifted by a crane and placed atop a one-story steel base that will be the hotel’s ground floor. The use of modular rooms built at an out-of-state factory is new to Oklahoma City and will result in the 142-room hotel topping out in about a week following the work starting last Friday. The rooms are fully furnished with desks, lamps, beds, bathrooms, air conditioners and even art on the walls. The AC Hotel at 411 E Sheridan Ave. and an adjoining 134-room Hyatt Place at 20 Russell Perry Ave. are being developed...
Over the past decade or so, people have begun to turn towards modular buildings more and more. We have begun to realize that modular construction has a lot to offer in comparison to traditionally constructed buildings which is, perhaps, the biggest reason for its newfound popularity. Not only are prefabricated buildings quick to construct, but they also save money and resources. With our most pressing problem being the disturbance of our ecosystem, modular buildings have certainly contributed a lot to providing solutions. Let us take a look at how traditional construction differs from modular construction. 1. Process In modular construction: Each separate unit (module) of a building is pre-fabricated...
With the planned 1800 Terry building in Seattle, Kirkland WA-based Seawest Investment Associates is gunning for the first urban high rise project to be awarded a priority green building permit from the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections. By the numbers, 1800 Terry will feature 38 stories topping out at 440 feet, 424 rental units with floor plans up to 930 square feet per unit, 8,000 square feet of retail space, parking for 259 vehicles and 1,652,148 screws. It’s the screw count that has Arlan Collins excited. As principal and co-founder of Seattle-based architecture and planning firm CollinsWoerman, Collins calls 1800 Terry a “version three” iteration of the firm’s modular...
The basic principle of prefab, whereby a home is fabricated in one location and then delivered to another, has been around for at least a few hundred years. An early example, the Manning Portable Colonial Cottage, provided the means for reliable shelter in British colonial outposts located far from anything that might have resembled a Victorian-era Home Depot. Between 1908 and 1940, Sears, Roebuck, and Company sold over 70,000 prefabricated house kits by mail to enterprising do-it-yourselfers across North America. These ready-to-assemble homes featured precut wooden components cross-referenced to a blueprint. Thanks to robust engineering, durable materials, and some good craftsmanship, many of these homes are still in use....
A vacant site in Dublin city centre, which was to be an owner-designed apartment block, is to be used for the city’s first modular apartment development for homeless families. Dublin City Council has chosen two sites – one on Fishamble Street, close to Christ Church Cathedral on the south side of the city, and another in Coolock – for the “volumetric build” project, which will involve stacking factory-built housing units to form apartment blocks. The council earlier this year completed 22 “rapid build” two-storey houses in Ballymun to house homeless families living in hotels and has recently started work on 130 more houses at sites in Finglas, Drimnagh, Darndale...

Why modular? QUALITY:
The quality of today’s modular home is often unparalleled, due to several factors: Today’s factory equipment is powerful and state-of-the-art, producing a tight, sound and energy efficient home. The materials need to meet a consistently high standard because of the finely calibrated equipment being used in factory. Your home is created in a climate-controlled environment, where the materials are protected from the ravaging effects of weather. The consistency of an overseen, assembly-line process also leaves little room for mistakes or oversights.
The new modular homes are designed with the customer’s dream house in mind. From a cozy bungalow to a stately Victorian, your new home is made to order, giving you more creative control than working with most builders and contractors. Inside and out, this is your home, designed to match your vision.
One of the best points of building modular is the fact that your dream home can be delivered, set and completed in less than 6 months. This is considerably less time than most onsite homes, where weather concerns, small or inconsistent construction crews, back orders and equipment problems are just a few of the reasons for delay.
Green Building is a whole-system approach to building that takes into consideration 7 factors: 1. Lot Design, Preparation and Development, 2. Resource Efficiency, 3. Energy Efficiency, 4. Water Efficiency, 5. Indoor Environmental Quality, 6. Operation Maintenance and Homeowner Education, and 7. Global Impact, or, in other words, using products that are not harmful to the environment while partnering with other companies/suppliers that also work to protect the environment. Bottom line is that we are certified and committed to building the very smartest, greenest custom homes on the market.
Your new home comes with a 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty® (2-10 HBW®) that includes 10 full years of structural defect coverage for load-bearing components; 2 full years of systems coverage against defects in wiring, piping and ductwork in electrical, plumbing, heating, cooling, ventilating and mechanical systems; and 1 full year of coverage against defects in workmanship and materials.
It’s very easy.
