Cape Cod-Style Modular Homes: Elegant and Flexible Home Design

We talked last week about two-story modular home construction options and thought we follow that up with another popular style home that we are building across Hampton Roads: cape cod style modular homes. This style of home is distinguished by their pitched roof and vintage New England appeal. They are perfectly symmetrical and features shingles that cover the house, fancy shutters on the front-facing windows, roof dormers.

Cape Cod's sloping roof is more than just a distinctive feature. While most cape cod designs are single story floor plans, some home builders love the cape cod design as they seek to reduce initial home building construction cost while retaining the option to easily expand their living space in the future. When the time comes to add additional living space, the undeveloped space under the high sloping roof is converted into an extra bedroom. So, beauty, functionality, and expandability all in one custom modular home design.

The following are some our cape cod-style custom modular home offerings:

Modular Homes with Vaulted Ceilings

If you are wondering if modular home construction offers vaulted and cathedral ceilings, the answer is absolutely YES! A vaulted ceiling extends from the first-floor level to the ceiling of the second level. A vaulted foyer will make the entry of your two-story home more exquisite and breathtaking.

The vaulted ceiling requires an extra job on the drywall where modules and floors intersect. Also, more railings are needed to be installed for the balcony and stairways. On the other hand, the cathedral ceiling is open to the pitched roof above. Converting a flat ceiling into a cathedral ceiling creates a sensational aesthetic appeal to the living space. This demands a more consolidated structural frame to uphold the roof.

Planning for a vaulted or cathedral ceilings would mean extra work for the modular home builder. Thus, some contractors don't offer home designs with vaulted foyers. The good news is, you have come to the right modular builder. Tidewater Custom Modular Homes can help you materialize your dream modular home with a vaulted/cathedral ceiling.

Modular Home Construction’s Hidden Structural Superiorities

At a glance, modular home construction looks exactly like traditional stick-built structures. Let’s take a deeper look into a number of the critical differences that make modular construction an overall superior product.

Lagged Corner Framing

To those of you who don’t understand the difference between nailing and lag bolting, we need to demonstrate that for you. Our modular home’s frames are lagged together which makes them structurally incomparably strong vs our stick-built competitors.
