Modular Home Additions Increase Living Space in a Few Weeks – Virginia Beach
Many homeowners are not interested in selling their homes even though home prices are increasing. Why? Because they can’t find a better home to move into. The solution is a modular addition to your home. If you love your existing home but need some more space, another bedroom, more bathrooms or an office, modular additions are less stressful, faster and less expensive. In fact, modular additions are the way to add high quality space to your home.
Adding an addition to your home with traditional construction means you will wait months you’re your home addition to be complete. Living with your family, kids, in-laws while construction is going on at home means very stressful living conditions. With modular home additions, the addition is built off-site in a factory, then shipped to your home. The modules are placed atop the foundation and attached to your home, then the interior walls are removed to join your existing home to the modular home addition. This means you live “under-construction” for just a few weeks rather than a few months.
With modular home additions adding space to your home is easier than ever because it is quicker and less disruptive to your home life. You can have a modular addition added to your home in a few weeks.
You can increase your living space without the stress of moving. You can add an addition to your home without living in disrepair and all without the disruption of major remodeling. Contact Tidewater Custom Modular Homes for more information.

Modular Homes are Built Faster and are More Energy Efficient - Virginia Beach
Modular homes are energy-efficient custom designed homes. These homes are built from the inside out, which makes them more energy efficient than stick built homes. In fact, the air-sealing and insulation is done before the home even leaves the factory.
Normally, site built home with an attached garage can take anywhere from 8 months to a year to complete. With modular construction, that same home can be completed in 10-12 weeks once the design process is complete. Modular construction is the way to get a faster, more energy efficient, well insulated home that is cost effective
Three months before construction begins, the homeowners and the modular home company begin the design process. This includes designing a floor plan and deciding on amenities and design details.
The next month is spent working to develop in-house architecture based on the chosen modular floor plan. Those design details are then sent back to the factory, where changes are made. The home is then constructed using the modular process.
The modules are then delivered to the building site. Four modules can be set in one day. The roof, is then installed.
On day two and three, the garage can be added and the modules are connected to each other and the foundation. Other framing details can be started and often completed as well, depending on the size of the home. Roof shingling can also be started, and possible completed.
After these tasks are complete, the set crew can finish the roofing, hang interior doors and install the siding. Air gaps are sealed with a specific focus on the walls between the modules.
As you can see, by building a modular home construction time is decreased immensely and home is protected from the elements because it is built indoors.
