Great Examples of Mixing Construction Methods

Right after I published the article about mixing different types of construction methods to produce great looking homes that wouldn’t have been possible with modules only I received these pictures from Bryan Hout, Preferred Building Systems, a modular home manufacturer in New England.

This home was a team effort of Preferred Building Systems and BensonWood. Built in southern New Hampshire, this 2,700 sq ft, 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath cape was produced using modular construction for the main part of the house and BensonWood supplying all the materials for a fantastic great room and a beautiful staircase to the upper floor.

Another one of the homes Bryan sent incorporated multiple components consisting of roof trusses, wall panels in conjunction with Modular boxes.

This 3,280 sq ft home was built by Preferred Building Systems for homeowners in Vermont. It has 4 bedrooms and 2 ¾ baths and was set in one day with the builder supplying the roof.

Bryan sent this last home that was set several years ago on coastal Massachusetts. Built on piers, this 3,440 sq ft, 4 bedroom, 3 ½ bath home featured a Nanawall installed on site by the builder.

It featured a combination of floor panels, wall panels, roof trusses, rafters, modular boxes.

Thanks Bryan for providing some examples of beautiful ‘mixed’ construction homes.

Gary, would be interested to hear from Bryan some commentary about navigating the engineering when transitioning between modules and prefab and stick built features. Is there a 3rd party engineer that he can share with the very custom builder/readers of this Blog?

Beautiful homes!
