Can you Customize a Modular Home?

Can you Customize a Modular Home?

A question we get asked all the time- can you customize a modular home? The answer is yes! A modular home is not the same as a mobile home and can be fully fit to meet the individual needs of the buyer.

For many people, it’s exciting and desirable to customize their own home. Choosing your layout, finishes, and foundation attachment can be important when deciding which builder you want to move forward with. Customization can make your home feel truly unique to you! Since modular homes are built off-site, it allows you to have more control over the ultimate build.

Designing a modular home or tiny home is a great option that also makes for a solid investment. Read below to find out more details on how you can build the modular home of your dreams.

Interior Trim

When choosing your interior trim, remember that this is what you will see most often since you’ll ultimately be inside your house. You want to make sure you love what you see daily. You can customize the flooring and countertops, and you can also choose the fixtures such as sink faucets and lighting.  

You can also customize for natural disasters such as fires and hurricanes with a modular home. You want to ensure that the best type of insulation is used for the climate of your unique house.

At Turn Key Fabrication, we offer tiny rooms! This is an excellent option if you already have a home but are looking for a space with a specific use, such as an art or yoga studio, or guest bedroom.

Exterior Trim

Never underestimate the power of trim. A curbside appeal can play a big part in your decision on how you want the exterior of your home to look. Not only so that you are happy with the look of your home, but looking ahead for planning about resale value. 

Exterior customization can be about how many windows you want around the house if you want a front or back porch, or what type of patio you may wish to. A wide variety of siding and trim packages can be selected based on the environment of your home and your price point. You can also choose what kind of siding you’d like and your roof style.  

Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency is a big topic these days. With people wanting to get smarter about the energy they use for power and heat, many alternatives are available now.  

A great way we have discovered to help keep energy costs low is with Structural Insulated Panels (SIP). These lightweight, self-supporting, energy-efficient panels can be used for walls, floors, roofs, foundations, and basements.  

Because of the material used in SIPs, they are estimated to be up to fifty percent more energy efficient than traditional wood framing. They are air-tight, maintain excellent indoor air quality and help with heating.

Layout options with modular homes are endless. When you contact a builder, they’ll generally have a few layouts to get you started. Then you can discuss your individual needs with the builder and make changes as you see fit. Maybe you’d like to add or subtract rooms, make rooms larger or smaller, and add windows or patios. All of these options are available when building a customized modular home.

If you are looking for a tiny home, our Turn Key Tiny’s are a great option. They are designed to be fully livable structures with bathrooms, kitchens, and anything else a typical house may have. Check out more details on our website.

With or Without Wheels

Most modular homes are built and then fixed to a solid foundation.

For others, having a home that can move is the ultimate goal. This is where tiny homes come into play. Tiny houses can be attached to trailers to be moved often (or they can be fixed to a solid foundation if you choose). Depending on the lifestyle that you’re after, you can customize your home to be mobile or fixed.
