A Modular Georgian Three-Story Home

Joseph Coupal - Friday, January 31, 2020

Georgian style homes are as popular as ever here in America and Tidewater Custom Modular Homes (headquartered here in Smithfield) can deliver for you. This popular British architectural building design features a square or rectangular stone or brick two-story building with a side-gabled roof and symmetrical shutters, doors and columns. The facade is adorned with pediments, arches, and columns. Interior attributes include high ceilings, window headers, and crown molding.

We thought we’d share (through images) what Georgian modular home style living can be like for you. We’ve previously shared the story about ”why choose modular construction”. Today we’re going to show you.

There remains a misunderstanding that modular home construction is limited by size. Nothing could be farther from the truth. We build luxurious estate-like designs like this Georgian style home. Note the majestic entrance is with its beautiful columns. The spot can be a place where you can relax and enjoy the view of your front loan.

You should know that vacation-style modular home construction in and around Virginia Beach is increasingly popular for a host of reasons. Yes, value and speed of construction are always at the top of the list when comparing modular home construction to traditional stick built construction. But down here at the beach where mother nature can pack a wallop, it’s the overwhelming strength of modular home construction as compared to stick built homes that raises eyebrows. We’d love to talk to you in person and provide you all the details, but for this short read, just know that the core structure of the stick-built home is nailed together. Modular homes are bolted together. A stark difference.

Three Things to You Know When Building A One-Person Modular Home

Joseph Coupal - Friday, January 10, 2020

1. You can decide whatever house size you want

Just because you plan to live alone and in minimum space does not mean that you have to live that way forever. Do not ever second guess going small as time goes on. The thing about life is our preferences change. Modular home construction is the most simple and affordable structure to subsequently modify to add space. Sit down with us here at Tidewater Custom Modular Homes to learn the details of post-build home expansion.

2. You may select from available floor plan designs or you can design your own.

Ranch style modular homes such as the Louisburg are excellent floor plan for those living alone. We offer a wide variety of small ranch and cape cod homes to help start the dream of your next small footprint home.

3. Build Smarter

If you want a smaller floor plan, make sure to utilize the space smartly. You may add storage behind walls, drawers under the bed. etc. This will help you save space. Sometimes less is more. Besides, you can make additions later. Again, this is one of the beautiful things about modular home construction. If you are undecided how much space you need, why not go small and safe on construction cost? Most people who chose to go with a small ranch style modular home never look back. They enjoy their easy to manage space.
