Consider Modular

Consider Modular Home construction, the popular new trend in home building.


A modular home is simply one that is built in a factory setting to the same building codes as a site-built home. The same traditional wood frame building methods are used, but the indoor location allows for the use of state-of-the-art equipment and climate-controlled working conditions. The efficient and precise factory construction methods elevate the home building process to a higher standard.  Modular construction is also a faster way to build, allowing the owners to move in and enjoy their new home sooner. 
 
Those looking to build often wonder if a modular home will look boxy or unappealing.  And if the interior finishes will meet their expectations. Dick Wildermuth, president of Connecticut Valley Homes in East Lyme, says, “Come look for yourself; our homes are beautiful inside and out. Standard features include solid surface countertops, kitchen tile backsplashes, cabinets with dovetail drawer construction, and much more.  We design and build beach homes, colonials, single story ranches, homes on piers and everything in between.  Our customers tell us that they saved money or were able to build a better home with more features than expected.”

To decide if modular construction is a good choice for your family home, Wildermuth suggests doing your homework. A good place to start is our website, www.ctvalleyhomes.com, which is filled with floor plans, photos, and valuable information about designing and building a new home.
