Epoch Homes - Modular Flexibility

We were talking with our friends at Epoch Homes about all of their different modular construction projects. To demonstrate just how widely they can use modular construction make a wide variety of customers happy they sent over these photos. This album clearly shows that the time and cost savings of modular construction can be used for homeowners and even business owners who want warm and cozy or something more modern and energy efficient.

This house was built on a gorgeous lot on a pond in exclusive Westport, CT. The customer wanted to minimize the construction time and be back in her neighborhood as quickly as possible, without sacrificing quality. Modular was the answer. This Arts & Crafts shingle style house consists of five modules on the first floor. There are five more similarly configured on the second floor. The family room ceiling is almost 29' high as it is open almost all the way to the roof peak!

The most amazing feature of this house is the double kitchen/pantry. Cooking is done in the main kitchen area but the huge pantry area is where the industrial sink, dishwashers and storage are. The first floor has a guest bedroom, glass sun porch and a library finishes the first floor living space. For a professional couple, the home office on the second floor was as essential as a master bedroom. Epoch built the main house and the detached garage with workshop. The house was comprised of six modules, and the area over the garage as two.

The upscale community of Greenwich, CT. has more than its share of very large homes on small lots, dubbed "McMansions". This "Arts & Crafts" style home is reminiscent of the Adirondack Bungalow. A relatively large house (6,500 sq. ft., 14 modules) on a small lot (about a half acre), the goal was to have the desired square footage without overpowering the older, smaller homes in the neighborhood. This was admirably achieved with the lower than normal (by Greenwich standards) 9/12 roof pitch, and by setting the garage back towards the rear of the house. The family room fireplace is consistent with the era, as well as the beautiful stained glass antique window. The foyer has a mahogany entrance door and hardwood floor and stairs. There are five bedrooms on including the master bedroom with sitting area, large walk-in closets and toilet area.

Built in Wellesley MA, these 16 condos were built by Epoch Homes. Utilizing modular construction methods this condominium complex was completed months before it could have been finished with stick built construction. The large time savings has also made modular construction a preferred option for colleges seeking to quickly expanding their on campus housing while ensuring high quality comfort for their students.

A ski house in New Hampshire needs to be energy efficiency. This home achieved top awards in both the U.S Green Building Council LEED program (Platinum rating), and in the Build Green NH program (Gold rating), modeled after the National Association of Homebuilders' Green Building Program. This Mountain home has a front porch and mudroom to doff the ski boots. The open concept kitchen dining, living room and entry have ceilings that reach 11'! A fireplace adds warmth and atmosphere to the two bedrooms and a home office. The home consisted of two modules. The 11' ceiling in the foyer and living room was accomplished with a custom truss design incorporated into component roof sections which were finished in the factory and transported to the site on trailers. A unique feature of the house is the spray foam insulation was applied between the studs and the sheetrock creating a thermal break. In addition, Epoch added solid foam around the top and bottom plates and around all window and door openings to create thermal breaks in those areas, creating an incredible energy efficient wall system.
