Redefining Custom Modular Homes

Working with Preferred Building Systems of New Hampshire (http://www.preferredbuildings.com), and Tamara Marteney AIA of Alpine Architects (http://alpinearchitects.com), we are building a new energy efficient home for our clients at Mad River Glen.

This home is a hybrid with the use of stick-built, panelized and modular construction.

– High performance in insulation, heating and cooling, and air quality. Exceed “Energy Star” ratings.

– Economy and efficiency in building construction

– Panels and modular sections built in controlled environment

– Specifically designed and engineered materials and fasteners

– All floors, ceilings, wiring, plumbing, windows and doors assembled under optimum conditions.

– Sustainable building practices

The modular units arrived on 6 flatbed trucks. The house was 95% framed and watertight in two days.
