Modular Homes Designs

 

TOP 100 Series (1 to 10)

As a fan of transportable homes, I believe the greater majority of traditionally built homes have the capacity to be built in a modular fashion. This series of TOP 100 homes gives you an idea of what is possible and an overview of what already exists in the marketplace.

 

Modern Modular Homes

A great example of bringing the outdoors in. The glass dining area is suspended to give the feeling of eating outside.

Utilising stone and neutral colours, this home blends into the natural environment.

The suspended portions of this home create less impact on the fora and fauna.

Elevated access to this modern modular home gives a unique and relatively cost effective entrance.

This home is very quite plain in design and yet has the ‘wow factor’.

What Are Relocatable Homes

Relocatable Homes Have Many Names

 

Transportable Homes Video – Tracey talks about various names used for portable homes.

 

Relocatable homes are also referred to as –

  • transportable homes
  • portable homes
  • pre-manufactured homes
  • manufactured homes
  • pre-built homes
  • modular homes
  • granny flats
  • prefabricated homes
  • prefabs
  • prefab homes
  • cabins
  • holiday park cabins
  • tourist cabins
  • affordable housing

 

These are all types of relocatable homes. However, they are not to be confused with a normally built house on a section of land that is ‘removed’ after a few years and transported to another location. These are just homes that have been removed.

Whereas, relocatable homes (or any other terminology used in the list above) are purposely designed to be transported and have extra reinforcing to cope with possibly several moves over their lifetime.
