Tidewater Custom Modular Homes - Virginia

Thanksgiving Day is the perfect time to remind one another of the many reasons there are to be grateful. We gather on this day to be thankful for what we have, for the family we love, the friends we cherish, the success we have had, and for the blessings that will come.

Thanksgiving is more than the festivities, it gives us time to ponder the lessons that we have learned and how we can spread happiness around, to look back at all the great memories and good people who came into our lives. We appreciate you, our customers and clients, so much.

At this time of year our thoughts turn gratefully to you with warm appreciation. Our best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving.

As so many new home buyers do, this home design started with the kitchen then the rest of the house built around it. We can certainly see why.


Look closely. Can you spot the differences between this modular home’s kitchen from that of a traditional “stick-built” kitchen. No? Well that makes perfect sense because the feature that make modular construction superior to stick-built construction are invisible to the naked eye. The modular home construction’s structural integrity if far superior to stick-built construction. But let’s get back on point here in discussing this particular kitchen.

This kitchen’s fixtures and accessories were sourced from industry-leading product designers and made from premium-grade materials. Like traditional kitchens, this particular modular kitchen incorporates the features that we incorporate across our modular home kitchen portfolio. Based upon the buyer’s desires, they are most often equipped with raised-bar granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, custom crafted cupboards, overhead cabinets with glass doors, and under cabinet lighting. In this example, take note of the stylish valence above the kitchen sink between overhead cabinets. Check out the clever use of downlighting from the ceiling. This modular kitchen is stunningly elegant and it can be built for you right here in Virginia Beach!

See one or two things that you would do differently here? That makes sense to us as well as no two buyer’s requirements are exactly the same.

The Market Relevance Of Today’s Modular Construction

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 10, 2019

Modular homes are the present and the future of American residential and commercial construction. The core reason to choose modular home construction? Everything is tailor made according to your taste and lifestyle. Modular construction is less expensive and quicker to build as compared to traditional construction methods. They also bring s long list of other benefits as well.

1. Use Less Energy

Nearly 90 percent of the construction of a modular building takes place off-site, hence the term prefabricated buildings. With this approach, there is significantly less disturbance to the environment surrounding the construction site. Not only is the actual construction of the building green, but the long-term running of the building also works out to be quite sustainable. Modular construction reduces energy consumption during the building process and it also reduces energy costs for its occupants.

2. Recycled Materials

Technology has made it possible for us to recycle almost anything. Modular buildings are constructed with recycled (and recyclable) materials for the most part. Recycled steel, recycled wood and even recycled glass are a large part of what makes up a modular building. All these parts can certainly be reused over and over again without seeing much wear and tear.

3. Modular Buildings are Recyclable Buildings

Modular buildings are called portable buildings for a reason. They will be transported from one place to another without having to go through the process of demolition. The term modular comes from the fact that these buildings are built one module (or unit) at a time and are then assembled on site. So, it stands to reason that they will also be dismantled. This makes it very easy to take down the building without disturbing the surrounding environment with dust, debris and other unwanted pollutants.

It will be our absolute pleasure to customize your home. With modular homes, architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.
