Disguising Joins in Modular Homes


Transportable Homes Video – Tracey explains techniques used to hide joins.



There are many different ways to disguise the joins when placing the modules of  relocatable homes together.

One way is to design modular homes with interlocking pieces. When assembled on-site, the interlocking modules mesh together and look natural.

An example of disguising the join on the inside of a portable home may be the use of plastering on interior walls and ceilings. Plastering is used in the greater majority of traditionally built homes and is a very good way to cover joins so they are undetected.

Carpet, tiles and floating timber floors disguise the joins in the floor.

The exterior of portable homes have the natural and obvious joins like any other traditionally built home; like corners or when a full length of timber joins another matching length. Rendering covers joins very successfully and the matching of other building materials. The roofing is also matched and interlaced for make the roof line seamless.

In most cases, depending on the interior and exterior materials of your house; Builders should use the same materials using technologies to completely cover the fact the building is modular. Nobody should be able to see obvious joins. A well finished modular home should appear seamless with undetectable joins.
