Prefab Home Custom Kitchen Design

11 guests gathered around a 4 by 12 foot food prep island, which is surfaced in a fine Italian marble. In full view are a pork roast, fresh tomatoes, basil and other herbs, newly rolled-dough and a pasta maker, plus the chef’s hand-printed cookbook. The large open room includes a view of the breakfast room and budding garden beyond. A family room with coffered ceiling and patio-access is off to the right. Chef Luca Tinti, a rising star in culinary circles, is holding a class on how to prepare a full menu ranging from Parmesan flan to herb-crusted pork to biscotti. He is the featured talent at Foresteria Villa Cerna in Tuscany’s Chianti district, a spot Trip Advisor ranks as one of Italy’s top culinary destinations.

Building Luxury Homes Using Modular Construction

Prefabrication isn’t a new technique in construction. It’s been a big help in putting together lower-cost housing and speeding the construction of modular homes for years. It’s also sometimes associated with lower quality. But today contractors and designers are taking prefab to new places, and proposing exciting new uses. Here are just a few ways prefab is expanding into the construction industry. Making Construction Greener—and More Customized Using prefabrication to help put together modular homes isn’t a new concept. What is newer, however, is using prefab to give customers a more customized design while still cutting waste—sometimes to 10% or less. As reported on Mashable, design firms can let customers choose a concept, then outsource much of the major construction to factories. This means walls, beams, flooring, and other components can be built off-site—reducing on-site work to assembling the pieces. These factory-made parts, because they’re planned out precisely, can cut waste to almost nothing—an important consideration for environment-conscious owners and builders. This method also significantly reduces construction costs and...

The Perfect Modular Floor Plan

While just about any floor plan that can be built by conventional stick built means can be built using modular construction, having a house plan that is drawn up with modular building in mind will usually allow for less expensive and more efficient construction. If you want to start designing with modular in mind, you can start with a standard home floor plan and make alterations from there. The changes don’t have to be small either. We’re not just talking about moving a window here or there. It is absolutely possible – and very common – to rearrange rooms, add features, or even add entire floors to a standard home plan. A modular house plan is like a set of Legos. Sure, you can build what’s in the instructions, but you’re also free to mix and match, make changes, and create anything your heart desires.

US Modular Home Builders -Great Reviews from Partners

US Modular Home Builders -Great Reviews from Partners

Testimonial from GAF Materials Corporation When GAF was fortunate enough to be included in a special project with the Ellen DeGeneres Show to build a home for a deserving family, we knew we had to make sure everything went smoothly. We had an extremely limited amount of time to first demo an existing house and then build a new, custom house, which would all be documented on the most popular daytime TV show. We met with several different builders and contractors, and after talking with the team at US Modular, our confidence was placed solidly with them. We had about the time that it would take most people to renovate a kitchen to build an entire house. US Modular worked closely with the city to expedite the process and move permits along, all while carefully managing our expectations. They simultaneously worked with us to determine the best floorplans, details, and design to match the look of the neighborhood and the wants of the homeowner. For months we were in...
