Cape Cod Style homes are a popular choice due to their compact design. The design of these homes offers maximum living space, storage space, dormers, and pitched roofs on the second floor. However, oftentimes, with stick built Cape Cod homes the second floor framing is usually less insulated due to its proximity to the roof which can often cause air leaks. A well-insulated Cape Cod style floor plan is often a challenge.

Modular home construction in Williamsburg, VA offers numerous options and a wide variety of customization for homeowners. This option enables homebuyers to choose right material for insulation and ventilation as effective solutions to heating and cooling problems.
