The process of building in this manner delivers a degree of speed and precision fitting that human craftsmen simply can’t duplicate.

Two-Story Modular Home: Perfect Home Style For Smaller Properties

A growing family needs a modular home style that offers space and privacy. A home that will feature at least three large bedrooms with generous closet space, spacious bath, and expansive living room. However, if you have a limited lot size, you may be wondering if it is possible to build a spacious home with a smaller property. The answer to that question is decisively “yes”!

When you have a smaller lot, modular home with two above-ground stories might be the best style for you. Building upward (instead of outward) is more practical and less costly per square foot. When you compare single-story homes to two-story homes, the latter requires less foundation, roofing, electrical wiring, and plumbing. All of this contributes to increased value as measured in cost per square foot.
